Tackling Complex Medical Malpractice Cases

Hospitals are intended to be places of healing, where you go when you are hurt or sick and need the aid of highly trained physician professionals.  However, every year close to 100,000 Americans die as a result of avoidable medical mistakes.  Many more contract serious illnesses or are injured due to medical negligence.  Most doctors and other medical professionals are caring, compassionate individuals who work hard to help their patients.  However, medical mistakes usually have devastating consequences and there is no victim more innocent than a patient who has come to a doctor looking for aid.

The medical malpractice attorneys at Warner, Sechrest, & Butts, P.A. do not believe any patient should have to suffer as a result of a medical professional’s mistake.  We use our decades of experience in the field of personal injury law to investigate your medical malpractice case and pursue justice for your injuries.

Medical malpractice is a complex area of the law.  There are a wide range of potential medical malpractice cases, including:

  • Surgical errors
  • Medication errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Medical malpractice in nursing homes
  • Cosmetic surgery malpractice
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Psychiatric malpractice
  • Doctor negligence 

Negligence is the root cause of most forms of medical malpractice, but it can be hard to prove the negligence of a medical professional.  Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys will prove essential in successfully litigating your medical malpractice claim.  One of the most crucial qualities of a medical malpractice attorney is having a firm understanding of medicine and being able to decipher often convoluted medical documents.  The personal injury attorneys at Warner, Sechrest, & Butts, P.A. are well versed in both the medical and legal arena, enabling us to present your case in the strongest possible manner.

We begin by investigating the incident to determine fault.  We will arrange expert medical testimony to illustrate where the medical professional acted negligently during your treatment.  Our attorney team will handle the insurance company so that you do not have to, crafting your compelling case.

Victims of medical malpractice could be entitled to receive: medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and more.  Contact Warner, Sechrest, & Butts, P.A. to schedule your free case analysis.  

Handling the Insurer So You Don’t Have To

We understand that following an accident, injury victims are often overcome by pain and stress. Handling phone calls from the insurance company while you are distraught and injured makes the situation far less manageable.  Further, the information you provide at this early stage can greatly impact your later recovery.

At Warner, Sechrest, & Butts, P.A., we deal with the insurer so you don’t have to.  Our law firm has years of experience in the art of successfully negotiating an optimal settlement with the insurer, if this is the route you wish to take.  We will ensure your rights are fully protected from the sometimes overreaching insurer, allowing you to get back to what matters most—your full recovery.

Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

Some accident victims, particularly those involved in automobile accidents, believe they can handle their injury or loss of property claim without the assistance of a qualified personal injury attorney.  These individuals often end up quickly confused and frustrated by the insurance claims process, and most end up settling for far less than their case could have been worth.  These accident victims will experience the heartache of uncovered medical expenses, lost wages, and ongoing disability.

The following is a list of a few reasons why accident victims, including victims of car, truck, and motorcycle accidents, require the assistance of a knowledgeable Gainesville personal injury lawyer:


  • The insurance company does not have your best interests in mind—insurers have the sole goal of providing you with as little compensation as possible.  Initial settlement offers will be for far less than your claim in worth, and are often made before the full extent of your injuries or losses is even evident.  A skilled attorney will advocate on your behalf and zealously protect your best interests when no one else is.
  • You may not fully understand all of your potential damages—accident victims, whether it be car, truck and motorcycle or slip and falls and medical malpractice, may be entitled to a wide variety of potential damages.  These include: current and future medical expenses (prescription drug costs and mileage reimbursement may be sought as well), lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of earning capacity, mental anguish, and loss of consortium.  Family members of deceased loved ones can pursue a host of damages through a wrongful death action.  An experienced personal injury attorney will thoroughly examine all of your losses to explore and pursue all potential avenues for recovery.
  • Proving liability can be complex—even with favorable police reports or witness accounts, proving another individual, whether it be a driver, property owner, or doctor, acted negligently can be difficult.  There are numerous elements involved in winning a successful personal injury suit and your best chance of victory is through the assistance of a skilled personal injury attorney with extensive knowledge of Florida statutes and cases.
