Medical Malpractice is a serious problem in Jacksonville and South Georgia. When you or a loved one needs medical care, you expect to receive the best possible medical care. You trust doctors, healthcare professionals and hospitals to provide accepted standards of practice and provide adequate care. When that trust is violated, the results can be devastating. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or a Wrongful Death at the hands of a negligent doctor, healthcare worker or hospital, Barnes & Cohen Medical Malpractice Attorneys have the experience and knowledge to get you the compensation you deserve.
Bad medical outcomes are frequently dismissed as "complications," when the truth is that the bad outcome is the result of a medical mistake. This is especially true in surgical cases. We attained a $3 million settlement against the hospital and physicians when an infant suffered brain damage caused by combined negligence. The claim settled before trial.
Unfortunately, Medical Malpractice is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Medical Malpractice occurs when a patient is injured by a doctor and or other medical professionals who have failed to follow accepted standards of practice or have failed to provide adequate treatment.
Examples of Medical Malpractice:
- Failure to Diagnose
- Birth Injuries
- Surgical Errors
- Hospital-Acquired Infections
- Nurse and Hospital Staff Errors
- Hospital Falls
- Wrongful Death
- Improper Medication or Wrong Dosage
- Unnecessary Surgery
- Defective Medical Equipment
- Vital Signs Not Monitored Adequately
