From the firm's offices in Jacksonville, Florida, she provides dedicated representation to clients throughout the state who have been harmed both economically and noneconomically by the negligence of other persons or entities. While Ms. Tygart's particular emphasis is on cases involving medical malpractice, she has experience in other areas as well, including nursing home neglect, defective products and motor vehicle accidents.

The first is that the statute of limitations in a medical malpractice case is only 2 years while typically in regular, run of the mill personal injury cases it is 4 years. The second is that there is a mandatory pre-suit period that Is outlined in chapter 7 66 of the Florida statute which delineates the mandatory pre-suit that every medical malpractice case has to go through.
