Polk County Injury Lawyer
Do you experience any of the following as a result of an accident?
- neck or back pain
- numbness and tingling
- shooting pains
- severe headaches
- joint pain or discomfort
These are some of the most frequently suffered symptoms of an injury from an accident. The cause of these problems may be spinal subluxations, bulging or herniated discs, severe spinal stenosis, nerve impingement, or soft tissue damage to ligaments. These problems will often get worse with time without proper medical treatment and can result in significant pain and suffering.
It is also important to get these conditions documented by a physician for your case. The insurance company thinks that someone who is not getting treatment is a person who is not hurt. If you have been injured in an accident, you should get checked out at a urgent care or walk-in clinic (i.e. Owl Now Urgent Care) and then obtain follow up care at the physician of your choice.
Going to an ER at Lakeland Regional Medical Center (Level II trauma center), Bartow Regional Medical Center, or Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center can be expensive if you do not need life saving care. Urgent Care centers are often a less expensive alternative than ER’s unless there is an immediate risk to your health or life.
Polk County Medical Malpractice Lawyer
If you believe that you or someone you know has been a victim of preventable medical error, then you should obtain a copy of your medical records to be reviewed by a Polk County medical malpractice lawyer. At your free medical malpractice consultation, we will help you identify the potential areas where the medical errors may have occurred. These consultations often involve a degree of medical and factual research done in real time as you go over the facts of your medical treatment with the attorney.
Every medical mistake does not turn into a medical malpractice case. Likewise, every bad outcome is not the result of medical malpractice. A medical malpractice attorney can help determine the point where your claim crosses over into malpractice.

Polk County, Florida
Polk County is centrally located in Florida with a population of over 600,000 and growing every day. Polk County is unique in that the summer rainy season from June through September is a product of colliding sea breezes from both the east and west coast. When these sea breezes collide, especially strong thunderstorms result and contribute to a summer season of car accidents and slip and fall injuries at businesses.
The Green Swamp, located in north Polk County, is known for producing thick fog, especially in winter. This condition contributes to car accidents on I-4 almost on a yearly basis. In January 2008, fog combined with smoke from a planned burn caused unusually thick fog resulting in a 70 vehicle pileup accident on Interstate-4.
