No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
No one expects their doctor to make a mistake. No one expects the hospital or clinic where they seek help to mix up their records or make other administrative errors that result in the delivery of improper treatment. Yet, these types of mistakes are alarmingly common, and many patients and parents find themselves in need of legal representation. Each Tallahassee medical malpractice lawyer at our firm knows this all too well.
