When you or your loved one enters a hospital, you expect to receive the best possible medical care. When a hospital or doctor fails to live up to that standard, however, you are left suffering. At Barnes & Cohen, our lawyers have the deep knowledge and experience that comes with practicing personal injury law since 1975. We can help if you or a loved one is suffering due to:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Birth injuries
  • Surgical errors
  • Hospital-acquired infections
  • Nurse and hospital staff errors
  • Hospital falls
  • Wrongful death
  • Overdose

Founding partner Glenn E. Cohen is one of the few attorneys in the Jacksonville, Florida, area who has tried medical malpractice cases on both sides. That unique perspective benefits our clients immeasurably. Contact our office today to schedule a free consultation and learn more.

We Know Medical Malpractice Law

To be successful in medical malpractice cases, it requires the ability to be aggressive at trial when going up against the seasoned trial attorney representing doctors, hospitals and their insurance companies. You also need a strong knowledge of medical issues and regulations.

Besides one of our senior partners being married to a board-certified medical doctor, we work with some of the top doctors and medical experts from across the United States who will strengthen your case. We can determine if:

  • A hospital had enough people on staff to prevent your injuries from occurring
  • Nurses or staff kept your safety in mind at all times, such as making sure bed rails were properly in place and transfers in and out of bed were properly done
  • Risk assessments were properly performed
  • Medications and vital signs were correctly monitored

Bad medical outcomes are frequently dismissed as "complications," when the truth is that the bad outcome is the result of a medical mistake. This is especially true in surgical cases. We attained a $3 million settlement against hospital and physicians when an infant suffered brain damage caused by combined negligence. Claim settled before trial.
