Beregovich Law Fights For Victims Of Medical Malpractice In Florida

Reports of medical malpractice involving Florida cosmetic clinics are on the rise. Marketed across the country as affordable, simple, and safe, the reality is that many of these procedures are anything but – and patients pay the price.

Unfortunately, Florida does not require physicians to carry medical malpractice insurance, which puts consumers at a disadvantage if they are injured or hurt due to a cosmetic procedure. Even more alarming are examples of convicted felons opening and operating cosmetic surgery clinics!

With the state unwilling to protect these patients, Beregovich Law is happy to step in. We have represented victims and families of victims who have suffered organ damage, disfigurement, pain and suffering, and even death as a result of cosmetic procedures gone wrong. Our clients live all around the United States, but the one thing they have in common is injury from a plastic surgery procedure that took place in Florida.

Andres Beregovich: A Victim’s Best Advocate

It can be difficult to find a medical malpractice attorney who is willing to represent victims when medical malpractice insurance isn’t involved. Insurance means deeper pockets, bigger payouts, and more compensation for the attorneys.

Andres Beregovich sees things differently. Rather than focusing on how much of a payout can be obtained and whether or not it would be worth his time to represent a victim, he is much more focused getting justice for the victims and protecting other patients from being injured by the same physician or clinic. That’s why The Beregovich Law Firm has clients seeking our help from all over the U.S. We’re not in it for the money. We’re in it to help victims.

We want to help victims move forward with their lives as best they can by securing compensation for their injuries and, equally as important, an acknowledgment that they have been grievously wronged. Many of our clients say they “don’t want this to happen to anyone else” and yearn for a simple acknowledgment that they have suffered unjustly. They want to hear an apology or even just a recognition that a wrong occurred through no fault of their own. We help obtain that closure so victims can focus on healing from their injuries, both physically and mentally.

It’s Past Time For Florida To Address Medical Malpractice Loopholes

Florida may finally be addressing some of the biggest problems in the state’s “medical tourism” industry and all we can say about that is it’s about time! The state has become a magnet for cosmetic surgery clinics due, in part, to its non-existent medical malpractice laws and consumer protections. While some argue that this has made cosmetic procedures more affordable and more accessible to more people, our medical malpractice attorney, Andres Beregovich, sees things differently.

“Florida promotes and supports medical tourism. They need to have laws in place that will protect the consumer when something, God forbid, happens.”

The Beregovich Law Firm has represented several victims of botched medical procedures that have taken place in the state. We have seen victims suffer life-changing injuries, disfigurement, pain and discomfort, and even death due to the state’s lax oversight of cosmetic procedures. The lack of regulation may make procedures more accessible, but it comes at a very, very high cost.

New Legislation on the Horizon

Things may be about to change, however. As reported by the AP, legislation was recently introduced in the state House to require facilities and doctors to demonstrate that they have the financial ability to pay out claims when the physician or facility is determined to be at fault for serious injury. Current Florida law does not require cosmetic surgery clinics to have medical liability insurance. The legislation also gives the state Health Department authorization to suspend or place five-year bans on facility owners and physicians who fail to comply with the rule changes, preventing new clinics from being opened under another name, and it would require surgery centers to be at least partly owned a medical doctor.

All of these changes are a good thing for consumers who are putting themselves at risk every time they have a procedure done in the state. Without effective oversight, it’s far too easy for unqualified surgeons to botch procedures, destroying victim’s lives, and yet, be back at it again the next day with no repercussions.
