Fighting For Patients’ Rights
Harmed By Medical Negligence?
People seek treatment from medical professionals to heal their injuries. However, when doctors or other medical professionals neglect established standards of care, further damage may result from medical treatment instead. When this happens, a medical malpractice lawyer can help you hold the negligent parties accountable for their actions.
The Shapiro Law Group chooses to represent a select number of medical malpractice cases each year. Thus, this allows us to give clients and their causes our full focus and effort. We offer free initial consultations and no cost case reviews. Our Tampa Bay medical malpractice lawyers also work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we cover the initial court costs, so that you do not have to pay anything up front. Consequently, you only pay attorney fees and court costs if your case is resolved favorably.

In addition to the physical and emotional toll it takes on the medical malpractice victim, families are easily overwhelmed by financial burdens of proper care and treatment during the recovery period.

He and his team of medical experts carefully evaluate the potential claim. Richard’s mission is to take on causes, not just cases. He strives to help his clients gain the best quality of life possible as well as force the healthcare industry to revamp its policies and practices to elevate their levels of care for all future patients.ent blindness in newborns
