Lawyers to contest “medical-malpractice law” in Florida Supreme Court

Lawyers representing medical malpractice victims in Florida are challenging a law that they believe is violating the privacy rights of patients.

Lawyers in Escambia County recently demanded that the Supreme Court dispute the “ex parte communications” law. The 2013 law supported by medical practitioner groups allows attorneys of doctors facing lawsuits to get other medical information about their patients from their previous doctors even without their consent. The information can be obtained by defense lawyers even without the knowledge of the attorney representing the patient in filing medical malpractice claim. The appeals court in July issued a ruling in favor of the law.

When you are filing for a medical malpractice claim, it is important that you work with an experienced lawyer even when you believe that you have strong evidence to support your claim. If you are filing for medical malpractice in West Palm Beach, the lawyers of the Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller, Overbeck & Baxter P.A. may work for you.
