Medical Malpractice and Insurance Defense

Due to continuing rapid change in the complex area of medical malpractice defense, such as the 2014 ruling by the Florida Supreme Court to eliminate a $1 million cap on non-economic damages in medical malpractice wrongful death lawsuits, practical legal advice from aggressive defense counsel is essential to sound business practice. The Michael R. Lowe, P.A. approach recognizes each client’s situation as unique and seeks to provide legal solutions responsive to each legal challenge.

All legal options are fully explored and explained, and realistic “risk vs. reward” options are detailed. Clients are always kept informed of the status of their proceedings, in an effort to minimize undue concern over the process and the outcome. Michael R. Lowe, P.A. represents the following individuals in medical malpractice actions:

  • Medical Doctors
  • Osteopathic Physicians
  • Chiropractic Physicians
  • Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners
  • Physician Assistants
  • Pharmacists
  • Podiatrists
  • Dentists
  • Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons

Florida Medical Malpractice Defense Lawyers

With Florida's turbulent medical malpractice professional liability insurance market, these cases have become more critical than ever for physicians. At the Florida law firm of Michael R. Lowe, P.A., our lawyers review our clients' policy options and, when appropriate, provide counsel on the inherent risks of going "bare."

And with our experience defending and trying cases, we often work closely with our clients as personal counsel to help guide them through the litigation process when necessary. We take the time to explain our clients' options each step of the way, ensuring their comfort and understanding of the issues at hand.

Our attorneys focus our representation on the following types of cases and concerns:

  • Defense planning and strategy
  • Policy coverage and personal counsel matters
  • Representation of clients as personal counsel in excess verdicts and coverage issues
  • Defense of medical malpractice/professional negligence claims
  • Review and structuring of medical malpractice and professional negligence policies
  • Advising clients on going "bare" and Florida physician financial responsibility requirements
  • Eighth Amendment — "Three strikes and you're out"
  • Reports to federal and state data banks

In Florida, a significant percentage of doctors do not have medical malpractice insurance because coverage is so expensive. If you are going bare, our lawyers will consult (and also require you to consult) with board-certified estate planning attorneys and other specialists who have significant experience in protecting assets. Our lawyers will handle the regulatory issues associated with going bare.

Attorney Michael R. Lowe is Board-Certified in Health Law by The Florida Bar.
