When we seek medical treatment, we expect and hope that we will receive the best care possible. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Many people suffer serious injury or even die as a result of medical errors. Health care providers, including doctors, dentists, nurses and hospitals need to be held accountable for the pain and suffering created by medical malpractice or negligence.
Cohen has assembled a team of lawyers and professionals experienced in handling medical malpractice cases that bring decades of experience, determination and proven results to every medical malpractice case they handle. Our legal and medical credentials add significant value in understanding and analyzing the facts of a case, conducting thorough reviews with experts and witnesses, and bringing a level of authority to mediations.
Mr. Cohen's Medical Malpractice division offer their combined years of experience in and out of the courtroom, making them a formidable team to have representing you. To complete the group we add an investigative team with experience in medical malpractice investigations and an in-house nurse-paralegal to assist with our medical records review. With such a comprehensive team in place, it is not surprising that the firm has won some of the highest medical malpractice verdicts and settlements in the State of Florida.
Examples of our most recent and significant cases include:
- $29 million settlement for a burn victim who suffered anoxic brain injury during treatment for his burns
- $10 million verdict + $2 million settlement for infant who suffered severe brain damage during surgery at Shands Hospital
- Confidential settlement for woman who suffered a stroke during routine tests.
There are strict time limits for filing medical malpractice cases. If you suspect that you or your loved one has been injured or killed as a result of a medical mistake, it is important to consult with a medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible to review and protect your legal rights.
