Complete Potential Medical Malpractice Case Form

Every year hundreds and thousands of individuals are injured or are fatally injured as a result of medical errors. In such instances, individuals or their loved ones may have a claim for personal injuries and/or wrongful death as a result of the improper treatment of a medical provider.

Medical negligence or malpractice is committed when a healthcare provider renders treatment which falls below the acceptable standard of care in the medical community. Such behavior can often cause severe and long-lasting effects for many individuals. In some situations, a medical provider’s lack of care may even be responsible for causing death.

The lawyers of Legler, Murphy & Battaglia, LLP, are adept at handling cases involving all types of medical negligence and malpractice. Situations which commonly involve medical negligence are:

  • Surgical errors
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Brain damage
  • Improper treatment
  • Medication errors
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Failure to adhere to the Patient Bill of Rights
  • Improper discharge
  • Injury caused by health care providers in the course of treatment

The laws in the State of Florida which relate to medical malpractice and negligence claims are some of the most complex laws to navigate. Unfortunately, this statement has become even truer in recent years. Cases of this type are near impossible for a single individual to handle alone. Such cases require the involvement of a sophisticated team of legal professionals.

Most all of the cases handled by the attorneys of Legler, Murphy & Battaglia, LLP, are handled on a contingency fee basis, meaning that there is never any cost to you unless and until we prevail in your case.

I had the privilege of working with Kelli Martinez as my personal injury attorney, and I can't express enough how grateful I am for her exceptional guidance and support throughout the entire process. From the moment I first contacted her to the conclusion of my case, Kelli demonstrated an unwavering commitment to ensuring my rights were protected and that I received the compensation I deserved.I highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal representation for personal injury cases.

Mr. Murphy and his team were amazing to work with. In a stressful situation they were on top of making sure I understood my options and walking me through the process when I’d stress out. He fought to make sure I was fairly treated and not just another person swept under the rug and forgot about. I highly recommend him if you ever need and hope to have a timely resolution and team that is top notch.

I am very grateful to Ed Murphy for accepting my case against work compensation, otherwise I wouldn't have had another doctor for a second examination and I would have been at home without being able to work again. I am thankful for all the work Ed and his assistant Jessica have done in my case. I am very happy with the service, every time I called I was treated very nicely by the front desk staff, Kelly. Thanks

I was always able to get ahold of him via the phone and emails. I never felt rushed in our meetings and conversations. He was professional and courteous. I am very satisfied how quickly I received my settlement.

I highly recommend contacting Ed Murphy with your worker's compensation case. From day one he took the time to explain all aspects of the case, listened to my questions and concerns, and kept me up-to-date as the case progressed. I believe he was able to achieve the best possible outcome with my case, and I couldn't be happier to have worked with him. I had never hired an attorney before, but he immediately put me at ease and had my trust. Great experience from start to finish!
