I couldn't be happier with the legal representation and work Sean gave to the organization I represent. He was a thoughtful, professional partner in an extremely difficult situation that at times seemed hopeless but reached a successful end with all parties agreeable with the outcome. A very difficult navigation that Sean was able to help lead us through. We are thankful for his help, and I highly recommend Sean when looking for legal services.
Sean represented my wife and I and our three-year-old daughter in a case involving medical malpractice after she was born at a Miami hospital. The case was settled confidentially, providing for the future care and treatment of our daughter, and we were very satisfied with the result.
My wife and I were referred to Sean Cleary by another Attorney. He was very highly recommended and, I must say, very deservedly so. Sean is very diligent in his work; his preparation is phenomenal and his presentations are something to behold. He is very accessible if you have any questions. He always takes the time to fully explain in language you can understand. We highly recommend anyone needing help...talk to Sean Cleary.
Sean represented my family after my wife died from an infection following surgery at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Miami Beach. Sean was not just an aggressive litigator but also a trusted advisor whose wisdom and experience with the medical malpractice system helped us achieve a phenomenal result that honored the memory of my deceased wife and assured the financial future for my children. I very much doubt that any other lawyer in the community would have worked so hard, spent so much time, and fought so many battles on our behalf. For complex medical malpractice cases that require serious brainpower and technical know-how, there is no better lawyer in Florida than Sean Cleary.
Sean Cleary represented my husband and I in a very difficult medical malpractice case. Mr. Cleary was always was courteous, diligent and professional. He was straightforward and upfront about the challenges we faced but never relented in his pursuit of justice on our behalf, up through and beyond a contentious 6-day jury trial. We would recommend him without hesitation.
Sean is an outstanding professional, transparent and very diligent; he personally dedicated time and attention to my case; he always responded my calls promptly, keeping me informed all the time. His knowledge and advises are very accurate and valuable. Definitely, great lawyer.
I would highly recommend Sean Cleary. Not only is he a very knowledgeable attorney he takes the time to explain the law to ensure you understand every aspect of your case. He is also very sensitive to the needs of you and or your family during very trying times.
From day one, Mr. Cleary had faith in my case. He paid attention to every detail with great professionalism. He did not shy away from any challenges and went the extra mile to provide what he promised.
Highly recommended. Sean is smart, conscientious, detail-oriented and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Always gets excellent results for his clients.
Mr. Cleary represented my family in a case involving medical malpractice affecting my 3 year old daughter. Sean is an extremely knowledgeable attorney. He is agile, doesn't save efforts, goes beyond the initial objectives proposed to support us. He always stands by moral values. If he accepts to represent you, you are lucky.
Medical errors, though also common in adults, can have serious consequences in children. A study in the journal Pediatrics found that problems due to medications occurred in 11% of children who were in the hospital and that 22% of them were preventable. In the United States, wrong medication or dosage affects a child every eight minutes. Children are also the victims of diagnostic errors, incorrect procedures or tests, infections, and injuries. Out of the total number of medical errors in pediatric cases, 50% are preventable. Medical mistakes are a more significant threat for children than for adults because children are physically small, and their kidneys, liver and immune system are still developing.
Depending on how complex the case is, your pediatric malpractice case could stretch for anything from six months to five years. Consult a lawyer to become familiar with the statute of limitations and the best options available in your particular case.View full answer
As medical errors in the case of children can have dire consequences because of the fragile nature of the patients and their inability to articulate response, children medical errors are treated very severely by the law, as in the case of surgical errors, wrong dosage, misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis etc.View full answer
