Meet James Horne Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death Attorney

Meet James Horne, medical malpractice and wrongful death attorney. Mr. Horne is an AV-Preeminent and Avvo rated injury lawyer in Manatee County. While James handles all types of injury claims, Mr. Horne focuses the majority of his practice on representing victims who have been injured by a doctor’s wrongdoing, or those who have lost a loved one in an accident. While all injury cases present issues, wrongful death and medical malpractice tend to pose the most complications. These cases are complex because a litigation attorney must provide negligence, which can be difficult, to say the least. In addition, these types of claims often go to trial.

What was your first case and settlement?

“It was a jury trial win, I represented a 95-year-old man who was ripped off by his A/C company. 30,000 verdict, even though he lost only 6k. helping an elderly man who was taken advantage of. I had a lot of pressure because if he had lost, he would have had to pay the A/C company’s legal fees. I was very proud of this win.”

What is the number one area of personal injury you focus on?

“I take on all types of injury claims, including car accidents and injuries related to premises liability. However, if I had to say, my number one area of focus on is wrongful death.”

What is your number one piece of advice to injury victims? 

“If I had to say, the number one thing is don’t panic. No injury case is too complex or too big. It’s important to take detailed notes and a timeline of what occurred for possible use at a later date because memories can be tricky.”
