Medical Malpractice  
At Gary C. Johnson, P.S.C., we are experienced medical malpractice attorneys who can help clients determine whether or not malpractice has occurred where someone is injured as a result of negligence or misconduct of individuals in the dental, medical, podiatry, chiropractory, psychiatry, and other health professional fields. While a simple mistake is not enough to constitute negligence, a death or injury caused by the failure to provide reasonably appropriate or common standards of care or the failure to diagnose an easily detectable illness may be malpractice.

We regularly represent individuals who have died or suffered extensive injuries resulting from negligence of a hospital, physician, nurse practitioner, or other health care provider. Catastrophic cases may arise from a medical provider's failure to:

Refer patients to an appropriate medical specialist
Adequately treat an emergency room patient
Diagnose diseases, such as cancer
Recognize conditions that result in injury to an unborn baby
Order a biopsy, or other reasonable action
Monitor changes in a patient's condition
Order necessary lab tests
Order or appropriately evaluating radiographic tests
Properly assess lab values
Adhere to proper standards during surgery
Prescribe appropriate medication
When someone is injured as a result of the negligence or misconduct of a healthcare professional, an experienced medical malpractice attorney can determine to what extent the law provides a means of obtaining compensation.

Not every bad result means someone was negligent. Our experience has made us adept at analyzing these cases, simplifying complex medical matters, and identifying and aggressively pursuing legal remedies. But if you have a question about a possible injury resulting from medical negligence, please contact us today so we can help you decide what to do.
 
Product Liability / Defective Products  
We represent individuals who have been injured as a result of an unsafe product and assist our injured clients in bringing their claims and being fairly compensated for their injuries. Please contact us if you or a family member has been injured by an unsafe product such as:

Alcoholic beverages
Children's toys
Firearms
Food and agricultural products
achinery and tools
Medical products and devices
Motor vehicles
Auto crash worthiness
Air bags
SUV rollovers
Pharmaceutical products
Recreational products
We will vigorously pursue the maximum allowable compensation for your loss under the law against the suppliers of all types of defective products. Feel free to contact us to discuss your potential claim.
 
Premises Liability  
We handle premises liability claims involving structural design flaws, unsafe conditions, environmental hazards, improper traffic patterns and a wide range of other issues. In many cases, security related premises liability matters involve issues such as physical security standards and generally accepted security practices. In addition to any existing standards, crime statistics, event history, community standards, and specific risk considerations play a part in determining whether an adverse event was foreseeable.

If you or someone you know has been injured on someone else's property, contact us with questions and to discuss how we can help.
 
Slip and Fall Accidents  
Injuries suffered on another's property, whether in a home, on a sidewalk, or in a commercial building or shop, are often the result of negligent maintenance or even complete disregard for the safety of others. If you or a family member has been injured in a fall or other accident away from your home, you may have a claim. Feel free to contact us to find out.
 
Construction Accidents  
Owners and general contractors have an obligation to keep the work site safe. If there is an accident, in many cases a worker will be able to bring a claim against the owner or general contractor in addition to a workers' compensation claim. It is important to consult a firm with expertise in this area of the law to ensure that your rights are fully protected.

At Gary C. Johnson, P.S.C., we are experienced with construction site accidents of all types. We recently won a $3.7 million dollar verdict on behalf of a plaintiff who was working at his job as a mining supervisor when he was severely injured due to the faulty construction of a water tower. If you have a question about a construction site accident, please contact us for assistance and advice.
 
Off Label Drug Injuries  
Use of drugs in ways other than described in the FDA-approved label is called "off-label use." Although it is legal for physicians to prescribe medications for "off-label" uses, it is not legal for drug companies to promote unapproved uses or distort information about a medication's "off-label" benefits. Unfortunately, unapproved uses of prescription drugs can result in serious injury or death. If a physician prescribed any drug for an "off-label" use, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.

If you or someone you know has been injured as the result of an "off-label" drug prescription, contact us with questions and to discuss how we can help.
