Fighting Against Hospital Negligence

When people go to the doctor, it is with the expectation and hope that they will be better when they leave. Unfortunately, the results of surgery or a hospital visit are not always what patients hoped for. In some situations, the difference between the hoped-for results and the actual results can be attributed to the uncertainty of medicine, and cannot be avoided. Some medical situations, however, can be avoided if medical personnel provide a reasonable level of care. And when doctors, surgeons or other medical professionals make mistakes, the results can be devastating.

If you think you have been the victim of medical malpractice, an experienced Gainesville medical malpractice lawyer can help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your case. At the Goldberg Law Office, we have more than 25 years of experience serving individuals throughout north central Florida. In medical malpractice cases, that often means helping individuals understand whether they were the victim of medical malpractice or whether their operation or treatment simply did not go as planned, despite the best and most diligent efforts of the doctors. We represent individuals in a variety of medical malpractice cases, including:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Botched surgery
  • Failure to provide proper follow-up care
  • Prescription errors

Nursing Home Negligence

The Florida Nursing Home Statute provides patients with a Bill of Rights that is intended to protect their rights. The statute dictates what the minimum standard of care should be, and many nursing homes interpret that standard to mean reasonable care. Sometimes, though, nursing homes are short-staffed or inattentive, and patients do not receive the care they need or should be getting. When that happens, patients can suffer from:

  • Pressure sores (bed sores)
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition and malnourishment
  • Falls
  • Infection
  • Death
