At Michael Gunzburg, P.C., we find that in many of our cases, especially in medical malpractice matters, our clients want to know what happened to them, and more importantly, why the negligent incident occurred. Sometimes the knowledge of why an unfortunate event occurred is a lot more powerful in the healing process than anything else, including money. Many times, our clients also want their lives back.
Our goal is not just to get our clients the compensation they deserve, but to help them heal from their injuries and give them their lives back.
We have extensive experience handling medical malpractice cases. We recognize that not all doctors are negligent. In fact, many doctors are great at their jobs, and we commend them for their great work. However, there are instances where doctors, nurses and hospitals are negligent and fail to adhere to community standards of care, and that their negligence results in serious injuries to their patients. We stand ready to help those patients not only get compensation for their injuries but find out what really happened, and why.

We understand the dynamics of medicine, and also people. We know what goes on in medical offices, hospital operating rooms and other places where medical care is rendered to patients.
