The 561 Face of Medical Malpractice

Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen Trial Lawyers

Gary M. Cohen, Partner

Gary M. Cohen is one of the few—if not the only—attorney in South Florida to solely practice medical malpractice for the past 40 years. “I’m fascinated by the medicine, the challenge and mostly by the ability to help families survive after they become victims of malpractice,” he explains.

Mr. Cohen handles many cases of women who went into a coma or a vegetative state, or bled to death while giving birth. Studies show that, tragically, 90 percent of these cases are the result of malpractice or negligence. Similarly, patients undergoing elective surgery procedures often endure devastating outcomes. Mr. Cohen advises, “Never cut healthy tissue unless it is medically necessary due to a birth defect, disease or trauma. Having extensive surgery, especially elective cosmetic procedures under many hours of anesthesia, particularly in an outpatient surgery center, is sometimes a poor and deadly decision. It should be done in a hospital setting where life-saving measures such as a Code Blue can be immediately implemented if needed.”

“When I take on these, or any of my cases, I take enormous satisfaction in knowing that the catastrophically injured and their families can successfully fight the billion dollar insurance and medical industries to receive their just compensation. I live with my clients’ pain every day and I’m emotional about it. If this was just a business for me, I could’ve retired a long time ago. Knowing that I make a difference is very important to me.”
