We are contacted routinely by folks that experienced a degree of malpractice. In order for Gershon Willoughby and Getz to handle a medical malpractice case, there must be a serious permanent injury
that resulted from the negligent care. Many times medical providers do something that indeed is malpractice, for example prescribe the wrong medication which gets filled at the pharmacy. But thankfully, if there is no injury or damage that flows from that mistake because maybe the medication was never ingested, or even if it was ingested, nothing terrible happened, then there is no case that our Firm can assist with. Even something more serious, if a surgeon leaves a clip in the body during surgery and has to go back in to get it- thankfully this is not a serious permanent injury and therefore not a case we can handle.
Many times people will contact us and say “I’m not sure I have a case.” We typically respond that if you are not sure if you have a case then you probably do not have a case that we can assist with. In order words, if you have a very serious injury, disability or death resulting from negligent medical care, you know you have a case and you should contact us a soon as possible!
