Common Types of Medical Malpractice

Our medical negligence attorneys in Miami Gardens handle a wide range of cases, including:

  • Diagnostic errors/misdiagnosis: You may have gone to the doctor and walked away without a diagnosis. You may have been told your condition was one thing when it was really another. If your physician failed to diagnose your condition or misdiagnosed your condition despite having all of the information necessary to realize what was wrong, then you should speak with an attorney about your options. A misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose can lead your condition to worsen, or you may suffer harm from unnecessary medical care. You may have the right to pursue compensation for this type of injury.
  • Prescription errors: You may suffer harm due to one of many types of prescription errors. A physician may prescribe you an inappropriate medication for your condition or a medication you are allergic to. You may be administered the wrong drug, or the wrong dose or form of the correct drug. You may have the right prescription, but when you go to fill it, the pharmacist gives you the wrong pills. If you were injured because of a prescription error, do not hesitate to call our Miami Gardens medical malpractice attorneys to discuss pursuing compensation.
  • Infections: Hospital-acquired infections (HAI) are all too common. If you suffered from a serious infection that you acquired at a hospital, doctor’s office, or other medical facility, call us right away.
  • Surgical errors: Our medical malpractice attorneys have handled cases involving serious surgical errors, including surgery on the wrong patient, the wrong surgical procedure, or the correct surgical procedure on the wrong part of the body. There is no excuse for these types of mistakes and you should hold the physicians and facility responsible.
  • Anesthesia errors: Anesthesia is a central component of surgery and other medical care. If the anesthesiologist makes a calculation error in regard to the drugs you need, you may partly or fully wake up during surgery. You also can suffer dental and throat injuries, or you may not receive enough oxygen during a procedure, which can cause severe injuries.
  • Birth injuries: If your infant was diagnosed with an injury that occurred during the pregnancy, during the birthing process, or shortly after birth, contact our Miami Gardens medical malpractice attorneys. We have represented many parents in claims involving moderate, severe, permanent, and fatal birth injuries.
We Will Fight for Your Medical Malpractice Compensation

Through a medical malpractice lawsuit, we will fight for you to receive full and fair compensation for your physical, psychological, and financial damages. This includes compensation for your past and future medical expenses, which is particularly important if you will need on-going medical care. We will fight for you to receive your lost wages and employment benefits. If you have suffered a disability, we will pursue compensation for your lost earning potential.

We also will fight hard for you to receive compensation for your pain and suffering and psychological harm, which we know can be severe following medical negligence.

If the physician or other medical professional’s actions were egregious or malicious, we may demand you receive punitive damages. These damages are not meant to compensate you. Instead, they are meant to punish the grossly negligent party.

A big shout out to Nick Gerson & Schwartz for helping me navigate my care after a fall against a major cruise ship. They took care of me all along the way and saw me through such a very hard time. I highly recommend their firm if you are looking for a firm that truly cares about you. 5 Stars all the way! Janna Wright, Google User
Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
