Patrick S. McArdle, Esq. focuses on medical malpractice cases.
If you or a loved one received improper medical care that caused harm, I handle that.
You probably have questions about improper medical care. You believe that healthcare providers were careless. You want to hold those who harmed you accountable for what happened. And you want to make sure that no family suffers the way you have in the future.
I can help investigate to find out if you have a good case for the courtroom.
I’m a medical malpractice lawyer. I work hard to give a voice to clients robbed of their health. I have experience in every stage of medical malpractice litigation in Florida. I've gone to trial in malpractice cases in Manatee, Sarasota, and Charlotte Counties.
I belong to the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a group limited to attorneys who have won million dollar verdicts and settlements for their clients.
Referral attorneys and former clients have trusted me with cases involving amputations, blindness, brain damage, serious burns, misdiagnosed cancer, spinal-cord injury, and wrongful death. I’ve spent my whole career advocating for seriously injured people.
I personally evaluate each case, taking the time to discuss the details of what happened and who may be held liable. After becoming the youngest partner at my previous firm, I started my own firm to ensure I can handle every aspect of each case from start to finish.
While I practice throughout Florida, I focus on cases on the West Coast in Bradenton, Sarasota, Venice, North Port, Englewood, Port Charlotte, and Punta Gorda.
