About Miami Medical Law

A Miami medical professional should never cause you harm while treating you for an illness or an injury. Unfortunately, medical negligence occurs frequently. Whether you sustained injuries during treatment with a doctor, an osteopath, a dentist or any other medical professional, they or their insurance carriers should pay for the damages they cause. Physicians rarely acknowledge that they caused an injury and their negligence is often difficult to prove. If a doctor chooses to report an adverse event to their malpractice carrier, the doctor often retains settlement approval rights. Resolving a medical injury claim requires legal knowledge and malpractice experience. It’s important to consult with a Miami medical malpractice lawyer as soon as you suspect your doctor has committed a negligent act. You should never try to resolve your claim on your own.

Medical Negligence is Common but Underreported

Negligence, malpractice, and error are often used interchangeably when addressing physician-caused harm. Medical events occur frequently, and they happen under a variety of circumstances. Surgeons commit errors during surgery and perform unnecessary operations. Physicians misdiagnose or fail to diagnose medical conditions, so they sometimes treat an illness the patient doesn’t have. An obstetrician’s actions or failure to act often cause brain injury when a newborn suffers from oxygen deprivation during delivery. Doctors prescribe the wrong medications and pharmacists improperly dispense the wrong doses. These and many other negligent medical acts cause harm and sometimes death. A 2016 Johns Hopkins medical error study, explains why medical errors go undetected, undocumented, or unchallenged. When a team of researchers studied death certificates, they found that medical errors occurred frequently but were often undocumented as errors. The Johns Hopkins team determined that 250,000 deaths per year occurred because of a physician’s or a medical professional’s error. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention documents deaths nationwide. The information is inaccurate because the official death certificate submission form doesn’t include a “medical error” classification as a cause of death. The form requires a description of the “immediate illness” and the “underlying illness.” There’s no guidance for documenting deaths caused by medical negligence or inappropriate care. Because of this reporting anomaly, tracking medical errors remains a complicated undertaking.

What clients in Miami are saying about
Jed Kurzban

It was a pleasure working with this firm during my naturalization process. The attorney responsible was Ryan Patterson, who was responsive, knowledgeable, and have exceptional communication abilities. He promptly answered and cleared all my questions and doubts. Besides the professional knowledge, Ryan was also attentive, courteous, and created an atmosphere where I couldn’t avoid but fell that I was dealing with personalized service, or that my case was treated as his own. I highly recommend working with them.

Considering the fact that there are over 12,000 immigration law firms and a few times more immigration lawyers practice in US, finding the best immigration lawyer is obviously a challenging task no easier than the immigration pursuit itself. I was lucky to have known respected Ira Kurzban and John Pratt Esq. in person along with a few other associates from the firm for the past few years working on various cases for our clients. I would give a rating 10+ for each of the encounter working with them. Not only Mr. Kurzban has established his top notch status in the industry with the "Immigration Law Bible" (The Immigration Law Source Book for continuous 16 edition published in the past 30 years) , he had led a professional teamwork and operation ensuring the delivery unbelievable results often times clients themselves have almost given up hopes. And on top of the professional work and meticulous discretion and tactics, Ira and his team has preserved thoroughly the rare virtue of conscience and compassion for clients they represent, rather than the legal fees. This may sound so obvious for every immigration lawyer, but you will understand what I mean by emphasizing this if you have ever worked a complicated immigration case in current environment. Should you be facing an immigration challenge needs expertise, KKWTP should be your first firm to contact with.

Starting with partner, Helena Tetzeli, and all of her staff including Stephanie who is the first contact to this skillful and congruent group. I would not have been able to acrobatically navigate through the required process without this team. Though my case is assuredly a small one, it was handled with utmost attention. And Helena had her fingers on its pulse throughout. My kudos to this firm.
