I have been a practicing attorney for over 20 years. During that time I have represented a wide range of people, with a wide range of injuries. My clients mean a great deal to me. I have assembled a team that is dedicated to getting the best results for the fantastic people we represent.
Remember that no amount of independent research can equal the benefits of having a consultation and case audit with an attorney.
Patients and their families rely on a hospital’s expertise in hiring competent nurses and other staff members, and in choosing the physicians that have hospital privileges in their facilities. Therefore, when a hospital’s doctors, nurses, or staff members are negligent and cause harm to patients, the hospital may be held vicariously liable for their mistakes. Hospitals also supply doctors with essential medical equipment and supplies such as gloves, surgical instruments, and medical devices, and may be liable when contamination of any of this equipment contributes to patient injuries.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or death due to a medical professional’s negligence, you may be able to recover compensation for both economic and non-economic damages. Economic losses often include medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and other costs. Non-economic damages can include pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of society and companionship. In order to establish damages, you must present expert medical testimony verifying the claims of negligence, unless negligence may be inferred from the facts. Our attorneys understand how to build strong medical malpractice claims, ensuring that all evidentiary requirements are met, so that you may receive the maximum amount of damages available to you under the law.
When people are sick or injured, they expect to receive proper diagnoses and competent treatment from knowledgeable and practiced physicians and staff. Unfortunately, doctors and hospitals make unacceptable errors and mistakes that further injure their patients or even cause wrongful death. Our firm understands that such injuries can be especially traumatic because they are caused by the person or facility entrusted with your health. If you feel that you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, contact The Gooch Firm, P.C. for a complimentary consultation. We handle cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you only pay attorney’s fees if we recover for you.
