Lawyers in Miami, FL

Serving Clients Throughout South and Central Florida


Medical errors take a toll on patients and their families. Each year, more than 100,000 Americans die from medical errors, which are a leading cause of death. Even if patients survive, they often require expensive corrective surgery and additional medical care, like rehabilitation or at-home assistance.

Many patients and their family members have no idea what went wrong. A loved one went in for surgery but came out in even more pain and with crashing blood pressure. Or they took medication as prescribed only to watch as their condition worsened.

If you suspect you were the victim of medical malpractice, contact Dolan Dobrinsky Rosenblum Bluestein, LLP, today. We can review your medical records and determine if you can hold a medical professional responsible for providing an unacceptable level of care.

Can You Bring a Medical Malpractice Claim?

You can bring a medical malpractice claim if you can connect your injury or the death of a loved one to a medical professional’s negligence. That means establishing several elements, all of which are required to win a case.

There Was a Doctor-Patient Relationship

You cannot sue a doctor or other medical professional unless you show a professional relationship. This is easy to do when a doctor agrees to treat you, or a hospital accepts you as a patient.

The Doctor Provided Negligent Care

You are entitled to competent care by doctors who follow accepted medical practices. When they don’t, this is known as medical negligence. To bring a successful medical malpractice lawsuit, you need to show your medical provider did not act as a competent provider would have in a similar situation. Negligence takes the form of errors or omissions, such as:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
  • Medication errors
  • Wrong-site surgery
  • Surgical errors
  • Failure to monitor patients
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Failure to obtain informed consent
  • Failure to order standard tests
  • Communication and record-keeping errors

These are some of the most common mistakes. Contact our Miami medical malpractice attorneys today to learn more about whether you have a solid claim.

You Were Injured by Your Doctor’s Negligence

It’s not enough that your doctor provided substandard care. You also need to connect that negligence to your injuries. Most commonly, medical negligence requires additional medical care or causes unnecessary pain and lost income. Some patients even die early because of medical mistakes or simple omissions a competent doctor would not have made. If you suffered no injury or negative consequences, you can’t sue.

Connecting medical mistakes to your injuries is complicated, but our experienced medical malpractice attorney has worked with expert witnesses who can connect the dots in a convincing way and can do the same thing with your case!

What Compensation Can You Receive for Medical Malpractice in Miami?

Medical malpractice claims are made for certain “damages” you might have suffered, such as:

Medical Care

Malpractice victims often need corrective surgery, more rehab, and longer hospital stays. You should request compensation to cover all past and future medical expenses.

Lost Income and Loss of Earning Capacity

Medical errors often require that patients miss work to undergo medical treatment. You deserve compensation for any income lost because of the poor-quality care you received.

If you suffered permanent disabilities, then you probably have lost earning capacity. You might never work again, or you might only be able to work a lower-paying job. You should not have to suffer reduced earnings going forward because of the malpractice.

Pain and Suffering

Malpractice victims often suffer physical pain, emotional distress, fear, and other negative emotions. You can request monetary compensation to make up for this pain and suffering. We rely on our experience to conclude what would represent a fair amount, and we don’t let defense lawyers minimize your pain.

Punitive Damages

Most medical errors probably stem from carelessness or inexperience. But some medical professionals injure patients maliciously or out of gross negligence. A surgeon who operates while intoxicated and ends up damaging your liver is an example of a doctor who should pay punitive damages as punishment.

Our specialized law firm is at the ready to help you and your family find the compensation you need for a full and swift recovery! We are ready to tackle any medical malpractice lawsuits that you have!

How Does a Lawyer Help Your Case?

Medical malpractice cases are some of the most complex around. An experienced lawyer provides immediate value to clients. For example, our lawyers can:

  • Analyze your medical records to determine whether you are the victim of medical malpractice.
  • Work with expert witnesses to better understand the correct standard of care your doctor should have followed.
  • Interview medical staff and other witnesses to uncover what really happened at the hospital or the doctor’s office.
  • Create visual exhibits that show how medical errors negatively affected your health.
  • Notify insurers of your injury and handle all correspondence related to your claim.

After we fully understand your injuries, we can get to work negotiating a settlement for you. A settlement will make going to trial unnecessary, and many clients receive funds much faster. Defense counsel often denies their client’s negligence, instead pointing the finger at something else as responsible for your condition.

When settlement is impossible, our legal team can file a lawsuit in court. We understand what hoops to jump through before you have permission to seek justice in court. Not every case will go to trial, but we are prepared to present your claim in a way that jurors will grasp. Once all evidence is presented, a jury will render a verdict and, if they agree with us, award you a certain amount of compensation.

Why You Should Choose Dolan Dobrinsky Rosenblum Bluestein, LLP

Our firm has outpaced our competitors by providing high-quality legal representation to injured patients and their families. A medical malpractice claim is a special type of personal injury lawsuit. You should not hire an inexperienced attorney but instead contact us to get started.

Our firm has distinguished itself by our unique combination of:

  • Deep experience. Medical malpractice cases have different procedural rules than other injury lawsuits, and your legal team should understand them in detail. Collectively, our legal team has more than 50 years of experience in the medical malpractice field.
  • Broad knowledge. Unlike lawyers at other firms, our founder Dan Dolan spent 25 years representing doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies in malpractice cases. He understands how they value claims and what techniques they use to limit the settlements they pay to victims. Because of this knowledge, we can present cases in a compelling way to medical providers and their insurance companies.
  • Courtroom experience. We know our way around a courtroom in the event your case goes to trial. Our partners have handled 150+ trials to verdict over our careers.
  • Large network of expert witnesses. Experts are vital at every stage of a medical malpractice case. For example, Florida law will prohibit you from filing a lawsuit unless a medical expert signs an affidavit in support of your case. Should your case go to trial, an expert is tasked with explaining medical concepts in simple terms so juries and judges can understand them. At our firm, we rely on an impressive network of expert witnesses who have the credentials and experience to strengthen your case.
  • Proven results. Our firm has recovered more than $1 billion in damages for our clients in some of the hardest medical malpractice cases in Florida. We never grab at the first settlement offer but continue to work to get you a fair settlement.

In recognition of our experience, two of our partners have served as presidents of the Dade County Trial Lawyers Association and have received other prestigious honors. 

You Can Afford Our Services

Injured patients are often hesitant to contact an attorney because they do not have any money saved. What little funds they have in the bank are dedicated to keeping them afloat while they are out of work.

We are happy to represent clients on a contingency fee basis. Essentially, you only pay if we end up winning your case. We deduct a portion of your settlement or jury award, as agreed to at the start of the case, and you owe nothing to us upfront. If we don’t win, you don’t owe us a penny.

Deadlines for Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim in Florida

Florida has a detailed statute of limitations which gives victims two years to file a lawsuit in court. The clock starts running the day you are injured by malpractice or the date you discovered (or should have discovered) the injury. 

If you go past this deadline, your case can get dismissed. That is a tragic result, because it means you cannot hold a medical provider accountable for your injuries. They are let off the hook because you did not file in time.

In some contexts, this deadline can be extended. However, no one should expect a judge to extend the deadline, so contact our firm as soon as possible.
