, 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.
