Physicians, hospitals, doctors, nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other health care professionals are entrusted to care for individuals often during the most vulnerable times of their lives. The law imposes strict requirements on medical professionals to adhere to professional levels of care for such individuals in need. When a medical professional breaches that standard of care, serious injury or death can result. A few examples of medical malpractice include:
- Surgical or procedure errors
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
- Medication or prescription drug overdose/error
- Infection or illness caused by unclean or unsanitary equipment
Whether you or a loved one has been injured by medical negligence, Goebert Law LLC is proud to assist victims and their families recover from their physical injuries, pain and suffering, economic losses, emotional distress, and medical expenses.
Most medical surgeries and procedures come with inherent known risks. However, errors due to the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of the medical professionals performing the surgery or procedure can expose the patient to unforeseen risk, injury, and damages. Common types of surgical or procedure errors include:
- Infections or complications due to error
- Nerve damage
- Punctured or damaged organs, tissue, or arteries
- Wrong patient surgery
- Wrong site surgery
- Improper placement or misuse of a medical instrument or device
- Anesthesia errors
Damages resulting from surgical and procedure errors can be physical, emotional, and financial. Goebert Law maintains an extensive network of medical professionals so that your case can be properly evaluated and pursued in court. Goebert Law provides compassionate and experienced trial advocacy to victims of surgical and procedure errors so that they may recover all aspects of their damages and seek corrective future medical treatment, if necessary.

Often in medicine, timing is critical to effectively treat a disease, illness, or condition. Medical professionals are specifically trained to take a thorough medical history and evaluate all available information to accurately assess a patient’s condition, make a proper diagnosis, and prescribe appropriate treatment. When a patient’s vital medical information is carelessly overlooked and/or perhaps lost in the frenzy of a busy medical practice, the consequences to the patient can be devastating and even deadly. For example, a delayed cancer diagnoses may result in the disease advancing to an untreatable stage, or, a misdiagnosed heart condition could lead to a heart attack and death.
Conversely, when a patient’s medical history is thoroughly taken and their available medical information is properly analyzed, a correct diagnosis can be made and an appropriate treatment regimen prescribed which ultimately increases the patient’s chances of overcoming an illness or injury. Goebert Law, with the assistance of an extensive network of medical professionals, will meticulously evaluate the actions of your treating physicians to determine if they complied with the appropriate professional standard of care. Through zealous and uncompromising trial advocacy, Goebert Law compels those medical professionals whose conduct falls below the appropriate standard of care to justly compensate their victims for all physical, emotional, and financial loss.

Nursing Home Neglect/Abuse
Nursing homes and their employees are entrusted to care for the well-being and happiness of some of our most vulnerable loved ones, specifically, the elderly, infirm, and mentally challenged. The law imposes strict professional standards of care on nursing homes and their employees and when that standard is carelessly or negligently breached, the consequences to the patient/resident can be serious and deadly. In addition to the serious and possibly deadly consequences, the negligent, careless, or reckless mistreatment of the elderly, infirm, and/or mentally challenged is disgraceful. Some examples of nursing home neglect and/or abuse include:
- Bed sores
- Broken bones
- Improper use of physical restraints
- Cuts and bruises
- Improper administration of medication
- Dehydration or malnourishment
- Improper hygiene practices
- Development of severe depression or unusual changes in mood
- Unexplained death
