Florida Injury Attorneys: Florida Attorney Frank Fernandez of the Fernandez Firm Accident Injury Attorneys.
Age/Sex/Occupation of Plaintiff: 59 / Female / Nursing Assistant
Negligence: Florida medical malpractice lawyer Frank Fernandez recovered the full amount of medical malpractice insurance coverage available to a Tampa eye doctor whose staff’s negligence during an elective, cosmetic laser resurfacing procedure left his client with permanent facial scars. A doctor did not supervise the cosmetic surgical procedure and the assistant preforming the procedure had little or no training in violation of Florida law.
At the time of the hip surgery, the negligent doctor and his practice only had $250,000 in medical malpractice insurance coverage. Just prior to trial, the defendant’s insurer paid $1,550,000 over the doctor’s insurance policy limits to settle the case.
