You may also need psychological therapy to help you accept your loss and to help you to adjust to the new realities of your life. It is important that you obtain a settlement or verdict that provides you with enough money to cover these costs and to compensate you for lost earnings and future earning potential.

Workplace Accidents and Injuries

Work is a necessary part of life, and Americans pride themselves on their work ethic. No one should have to fear for their life or health because of their employment. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has been tasked with the responsibility for establishing and enforcing safety standards in the workplace. Nevertheless, about 8.5 million Americans suffer job-related injuries annually. A disproportionate number of those injuries occurred in Florida.

Child Injuries

Having to see your child suffer, or losing a beloved child in a fatal accident can be nearly unbearable for a parent. If your child is suffering injuries caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may be able to recover money from the responsible party that will help you provide the best care for your child. If your child died, nothing can compensate for the loss of a young life and the grief and anguish you’re suffering. But you may be able to find some closure in making the party who caused your loss take responsibility for the harm done. Doing so may also deter the wrongdoing and irresponsibility in the future, both on the part of the person responsible for your child’s death and by others who are made to understand that there are serious consequences to recklessness, irresponsibility, and negligence toward children, who are more vulnerable and need care, supervision, and guidance.

Child injury and wrongful death cases are heart wrenching, and you will need a lawyer with compassion and a deeply felt understanding of your and your child’s loss. In the Tampa Bay area, contact the law offices of child injury attorney Stephen Maltezos. Steve is committed to justice for injured children and grieving families and understands the importance of holding anyone who has injured a child accountable. Steve has offices in Tampa and St. Petersburg and handles child injury cases throughout Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties and elsewhere in West Central Florida.

Steve understands that this is a difficult time for you. You may not feel ready to proceed with a legal case. But Florida law places restrictions on the amount of time you have to file a claim. Steve will remove the burden from your shoulders and handle all the legal tasks with compassion and discretion, allowing you the time to devote to the care of your injured child, or in the case of a wrongful death, to go through the process of grieving. So let him take care of the legal matters for you. Call Maltezos Law today.

Birth Injury

If you live anywhere in West Central Florida, you owe it to your child to schedule a legal consultation with Tampa Bay birth injury attorney Stephen Maltezos. Steve is passionate about justice for the injured and the rights of children and their families who have been harmed by careless, incompetent, or otherwise negligent healthcare providers. Call the Maltezos Law Offices today and schedule your free consultation at either of Steve’s two offices, located in St.

Petersburg and Tampa. If possible, bring a copy of your child’s medical records. If it appears that medical negligence caused your child’s injury, as is the case in about half of all birth injuries, you may be able to get the funds your child needs and deserves to ensure the best available medical and rehabilitative care, along with compensation for losses to his or her quality of life because of the injury.

Medical Malpractice

If you or a member of your family suffered harm because of an error by a doctor or other healthcare professional, you may be able to recover money as compensation for your damages. This is no easy task, however, due in part to Florida’s extremely complex and difficult medical malpractice statute. Florida law leans in favor of doctors, and contains many provisions that limit an injured person’s ability to hold a doctor or other medical professional responsible for harm done to a patient. Nevertheless, with the right medical malpractice attorney working in your behalf, it may be possible for you to receive a compensation award. Money is never adequate compensation for loss of a person’s life or health, but there are good reasons to pursue a medical malpractice claim against a negligent doctor:

  • 1 The money you win can help you and your family when you’ve suffered financial and quality of life damages as a result of the medical negligence that damaged your health or took the life of a loved one.
  • 2 Making a negligent professional pay for errors is a good way to deter a physician from being careless, unconcerned for the well-being of patients, and generally incompetent. It may save another patient from going through the pain that you and your family are suffering;
  • 3 Holding an incompetent or negligent healthcare professional responsible for failure to perform at a reasonable level of professional competence can provide closure and a sense that there is at least some form of justice.
  • 4 For the aggressive and compassionate legal assistance you need to hold a negligent healthcare professional accountable for the damages you and your family have suffered, call the law offices of attorney Stephen Maltezos today to schedule a free consultation to learn if you have a case for medical malpractice. Steve has offices in St. Petersburg and Tampa and serves Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties and all of West Central Florida.

It’s all about justice, so don’t risk losing your right to compensation by delaying; the time in which you are allowed to file a malpractice claim is limited by Florida law, so make that call to Maltezos Law today.
