Skillful Palm Harbor Attorney Aids Victims of Medical Negligence

Strong advocate battles to hold negligent healthcare providers accountable in Florida

When healthcare professionals provide substandard care — care that does not meet the standard a similar medical professional would reasonably provide under similar circumstances — they should be held responsible for the harm that results. Even in catastrophic cases, proving negligence can be challenging, because physicians and hospitals are protected by powerful insurance companies whose lawyers focus on defeating your claim. At the Law Office of Paul B. Genet, P.A. in Palm Harbor, we stand up to medical providers who have fallen short of accepted standards. Attorney Paul Genet has more than 30 years of experience taking on powerful interests and winning substantial verdicts and settlements. In individual medical negligence claims and medical negligence matters involving a pattern of improper conduct, our firm aggressively pursues justice for patients who have suffered or died.

Florida lawyer pursues appropriate damages from doctors and hospitals

Victims of medical negligence face many challenges when seeking legal relief. The relevant facts involve complex scientific and technical evidence, and in the case of surgical malpractice, plaintiffs can’t even remember what occurred because they were under anesthesia at the time. That’s why it’s important to retain an experienced injury attorney when you believe you’re the victim of malpractice. We bring in subject matter experts to explain whether medical best practices were followed. Whether the harm resulted from a surgical error, a misdiagnosis, an improper prescription or another type of mistake, our background in personal injury and wrongful death gives you the best chance to succeed in a case against:

  • Doctors — Our firm brings malpractice claims against negligent general practitioners and specialists such as anesthesiologists, obstetricians and surgeons.
  • Nurses and physicians’ assistants — Increasingly, key care tasks are delegated to medical personnel who are not physicians. If substandard care or treatment by a nurse or physician’s assistant caused your condition, we will assert your legal rights.
  • Dentists, chiropractors and podiatrists — Even healthcare professionals who focus on one part of the body can trigger severe pain and impairment. After a failed procedure, we work to obtain medical costs, lost wages and other damages from these professionals who owe patients a standard of care.
  • Physical therapists and mental health professionals — Improper care by a physical therapist can exacerbate an existing ailment. And psychological harm caused by mental health professionals impacts you and members of your family. Don’t take on the burden of someone else’s mistake or misconduct. Attorney Paul Genet will maximize your chance for a favorable outcome.
  • Hospitals and agencies responsible for medical care — Whether you’ve suffered harm in a private facility or through a public agency, our firm will confront entities whose neglect or malfeasance prompted your medical problem.

If you have suspicions about possible problems with your treatment, we offer a free initial consultation so the evidence-gathering process can start immediately. In addition to retaining a qualified attorney, it is important to request a copy of your complete medical records and identify a doctor to provide a second opinion.
