Medical Malpractice Injuries in Pompano Beach, Florida
At Ben Crump Law, PLLC, we do not shy away from tough cases.
No matter the circumstances of your medical malpractice injury, we want to hear from you and learn how we can help. Call us if you experienced any of the following:
When you present symptoms to your doctor, it is their job to analyze them, order the necessary tests, and figure out what is wrong so you can receive the proper treatment protocol according to clinical practice guidelines. Time is often of the essence, especially when you have a rapidly progressing condition that is only treatable when caught early.
If your doctor diagnosed your illness incorrectly, causing a delay in administering the proper treatment, they may have committed malpractice. A Pompano Beach medical malpractice lawyer will investigate, gather evidence, and pursue them for compensation.
Even when your doctor makes the correct diagnosis, it can still be malpractice if they failed to do so in a timely manner. If your doctor had all the evidence they needed in terms of symptoms and lab results to determine what was wrong, but it took them additional days or weeks to make the correct diagnosis, you might be eligible for medical malpractice compensation. This is true especially if your doctor’s delayed diagnosis kept you from receiving timely treatment.
Surgery can be terrifying, but it is typically successful, with no issues or complications. That does not mean, however, that doctors do not make errors when performing surgery. If you suffered complications from surgery and believe it might be because your doctor or a member of their staff made a preventable error, we can help you pursue medical malpractice compensation.
Prescription Drug Errors
Prescription drugs can be lifesavers, but they can also end your life, or cause you a lot of pain, if prescribed or taken improperly. If your doctor prescribed you the wrong drug (or the correct drug, but in the wrong dose), they might be culpable for malpractice. A Pompano Beach medical malpractice lawyer can help you seek compensation.

We Help You Take on the Responsible Parties
Doctors are not the only parties that can be held liable for medical malpractice. Any health care provider, regardless of their education or job title, has a duty of care to patients they treat. The medical facilities that hire doctors and their staff may also be responsible for damages in a medical malpractice situation.
At Ben Crump Law, PLLC, we will investigate your case and identify all potentially liable parties. Then, we will build a compelling case on your behalf and help you win the monetary award you deserve.
If you were under the care of a doctor when your injury occurred, we will thoroughly investigate your physician to determine if they committed malpractice.
The Doctor’s Staff Member
Members of your doctor’s staff, including nurses, physician’s assistants, and lab assistants, may also be liable for medical malpractice.
The Medical Facility
We may also be able to pursue compensation from the medical facility where you were receiving treatment at the time of your injury.
