With a population of about 68,347 people, Amelia Island is located off the coast of Florida. Part of Nassau County and home to Amelia City and Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island is only 18.2 square miles in size. Known as the “Isle of Eight Flags,” it is host to numerous festivals that tourists flock to annually, such as the Amelia Island Jazz Festival, the Amelia Island Film Festival, the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival and the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. Amelia Island’s principle economic industry is tourism, with attractions ranging from sailing to camping. With so many people coming and going, there are bound to be accidents and mishaps that lead to injuries; injuries that will undoubtedly require medical attention.
From the time period of 1990-2003, there were 13,498 medical malpractice reports made against physicians in Florida (according to the United States Department of Health and Human Services). In the event that you or a family member becomes a victim of medical wrongdoing, the skilled Amelia Island medical malpractice attorneys at Farah and Farah are prepared to hold negligible parties responsible for their actions and get you the compensation that is duly yours.
In addition to the medical malpractice problem, residents of Amelia Island must also contend with the influential sway of pharmaceutical companies, who proposition physicians and other care-givers to administer their pharmaceutical medications. Propositions such as this would not always be an issue provided the administering of these new medications was always in the best interests of the patients, but unfortunately the best interests of clients are sometimes secondary to the financial interests of physicians and care facilities who receive incentive through monetary compensation from pharmaceutical companies. If you’ve experienced adverse reactions to a defective drug, the Amelia Island pharmaceutical litigation attorneys at Farah and Farah can help you determine the best course of action to take.
