  • Can you sue if a doctor has no malpractice insurance?

    Doctor does not have malpractice insurance. Does that mean I cannot sue if there is a problem that happens? I have to sign. Paper stating I understand that according to Florida statue s458.320(5)(g)(1) this doctor does not need to carry insurance....

    Kenneth’s Answer

    Yes, you can still sue even if the doctor does not have insurance. The problem will be finding a qualified attorney to handle the case because many attorneys will not take on a lawsuit against an uninsured doctor because of the extreme difficulty collecting judgments against them in the State of Florida. The lack of insurance is one small sign of a lack of responsibility. I would try to find another doctor.

  • Malpractice lawyer???

    One hospital diagnosed her with a bruised tail bone, at another hospital diagnosed her with a broken back at T11

    Kenneth’s Answer

    Although the T11 fractured may have been misdiagnosed, unless the misdiagnosis has caused or resulted in some kind of additional significant damage beyond the original fracture, then there really is no viable cause of action. It's not enough that there was a miss; there has to be more injury as a result of the miss. The only way to truly know would be by consultation with an experienced medical malpractice attorney who may obtain the imaging studies and medical records for review by the appropriate medical specialists. Best wishes.
