Holding Doctors And Hospitals Accountable For Errors
Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals who are entrusted with the health of their patients have a responsibility to adhere to an established standard of care. But medical mistakes are far too common. For medical malpractice victims and their families, it is important not only to get closure, but to hold those who are at fault accountable.
At the law firm of The Gori Law Firm, our lawyers have decades of experience handling cases of personal injury and medical malpractice. We encourage you to give us a call for a no-cost consultation about your circumstances.
Together with a seasoned support staff and a team of outside experts, we thoroughly review claims and only take those that have merit. If malpractice was the cause of your injuries or the injuries of a loved one, our attorneys will vigorously pursue justice for you.
No Recovery — No Fee
We handle medical malpractice cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not collect any attorney fees until we obtain you a recovery.
How Were You Injured?
Not every unfortunate medical result is considered malpractice. At The Gori Law Firm, we have the experience to tell the difference and to ensure that the cases we pursue are not frivolous. Medical malpractice may be caused by carelessness, insufficient training, failure to obtain informed consent or hospital negligence. Common types of medical malpractice often include:
- Surgical mistakes, including errors such as operating on the wrong part of the body or leaving surgical equipment inside the patient
- Errors and mistakes by ER doctors, nurses and other emergency medical professionals
- Delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer, heart attacks and other disorders
- Birth-related injuries and other instances of pediatric malpractice, including complications associated with preterm delivery, shoulder dystocia, Erb’s palsy/brachial plexus injury and cerebral palsy
- Medication mistakes, including situations in which a patient is given the wrong dosage or the wrong drug altogether
- Traumatic brain injuries linked to medical negligence or malpractice
Malpractice can often result in brain, spinal cord and other catastrophic injuries, as well as wrongful death in the worst cases. By pursuing compensation from those who are responsible, you can better afford the medical treatment you need for the recovery process and get the psychological closure to move forward with your life.
A note about complications from prescription medications
Doctors are expected to know the possible complications and serious side effects that can result from prescription medications. If your doctor prescribed a medication that caused injury because of your medical condition or other medications you were taking, you may have a valid claim for medical negligence.
