We seek medical care to help us feel better - but in too many cases, medical professionals sworn to "do no harm" do the opposite. Preventable medical errors lead to thousands of deaths and tens of thousands of injuries every year in our state. While medicine is not an exact science, medical professionals do need to follow well-established standards of care to keep their patients safe.
When they do not, their victims turn to us. Since 1974, The Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic has been helping Jacksonville residents with complex, catastrophic medical injury cases. We're proud to be recognized as Tier 1 Medical Malpractice Lawyers by U.S. News & World Report. Our medical malpractice lawyers have earned multiple million-dollar recoveries for victims of medical negligence, including:
Winning those cases wasn't easy. Hospitals and healthcare organizations have significant resources at their disposal to fight back against malpractice claims. They may dispute liability or downplay the extent of the victim's injuries. But thanks to our legal knowledge, resources and thorough investigations, along with our relationships with top medical experts who can provide critical insight and testimony, we hold those medical providers accountable.
Types of medical malpractice cases we handle
Hospital Injuries: In the busy and sometimes chaotic environment of a hospital, it is critically important for doctors and nurses to follow protocol and provide patients with safe, effective care in compliance with industry standards. We've handled many cases involving failures to communicate between hospital staff, medication errors, birth injuries, surgical errors, anesthesia errors, emergency room errors and hospital-acquired infections. Often, an error can turn a seemingly routine outpatient procedure into a nightmare.
Doctors Liability: Whether in a hospital setting or a private practice, doctors are required by law to provide safe, effective care for their patients. While doctors who cut corners and fail to provide a high standard of care are a minority in Florida, those few dangerous doctors can cause injury to numerous patients. Our law firm has handled cases involving doctors who failed to accurately diagnose medical conditions, prescribed incorrect medications, made surgical errors or otherwise fell short of the accepted standards of care.
Nursing Home Negligence: Residents of nursing homes depend on medical staff to provide them with care, and unfortunately, too many nursing homes fall short of that standard. Many of these homes have too few staff - and the staff they do have are overworked and inadequately trained. Nursing home staff may give patients incorrect medications, or they may neglect to provide appropriate care, leading to bedsores and other medical conditions. They may also commit acts of abuse or allow residents to abuse others unchecked.
Malpractice can happen in any medical setting, including clinics, doctor's offices, rehabilitation facilities and home health providers. If you or a loved one was injured due to the actions of any medical professional, you need to contact us right away.
