The Medical Malpractice attorneys at KALIS, KLEIMAN & WOLFE have been helping South Florida victims seek justice for more than 20 years.
Medical malpractice and medical negligence cases often involve negligence or carelessness by a medical doctor or other health care provider (such as a hospital, a nursing home, an assisted living facility, a nurse, a caretaker, a chiropractor, or a dentist) where a person suffers a personal injury, catastrophic injury or even a death as a result of their actions.
Patients have rights including the expectation to receive adequate and safe care while under the treatment of the medical provider. When they do not, they have the right to seek justice in a court of law. Medical malpractice occurs when and individual or institution fails to act reasonably or deviates from a reasonable standard of care that a similar medical professional would exercise under the same circumstances.
Our Florida trial attorneys handle all types of medical malpractice cases including:
- Improper Treatment
- Failure to Treat
- Delay in Treatment
- Surgical Errors
- Failure to Perform Appropriate Follow-up
- Prescription Errors
- Nursing Home Negligence or Abuse
- Defective Medical Devices and Products
- Catastrophic Injuries
- Wrongful Death
Medical malpractice can have devastating consequences on patients and their families. It is important to hire an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who will protect your rights.

In support of consumers, Florida passed legislation to make doctor, hospital and health care data and reports available to the public through the Florida Department and Health’s Health Care Practitioner Data Portal. Consumers can visit the New Medical Quality Assurance Search Services site to look up license verifications, practitioner profiles, discipline and administrative actions, and more. It is hoped that this extensive medical information will help the community stay better informed when it comes to their or their loved ones health.
