While physicians may not cure every patient, sometimes improper diagnosis, surgical error and incorrect administration of drugs or treatment can cross the line and become medical malpractice. Medical error can cause serious injury or death. Tampa attorney Jack Gordon focuses his practice on ﬁghting negligence by helping clients hold medical professionals accountable for their mistakes.
Mistakes are especially common in the hospital emergency room, Gordon says. “Misdiagnosis is the most common mistake we see in the ER,” Gordon explains. “A heart attack can be shrugged off as indigestion or heartburn, a headache may actually be a stroke, and what seems to be the simple ﬂu may actually be septicemia. By holding doctors and hospitals accountable, we can help make medical care safer for everyone.”
