No Case Is Too Complex for Medical Malpractice, Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Firm
A 19-year-old boy is rendered paraplegic following a one-car accident.
A 35-year-old patient dies from swine flu two days after being discharged from the hospital.
A 72-year-old woman requires laminectomy surgery and surgical implantation of a dorsal column stimulator after she trips and falls on the sidewalk of her apartment complex.
No case is too big, and no client too small, for trial attorney Jack Gordon, who represented the plaintiffs in all three cases. Gordon, the managing partner of Maney|Gordon, obtained an $8.25 million judgment on behalf of the injured boy’s family from the convenience store where the boy had purchased beer, a seven-figure settlement for the wrongful death of the swine flu patient’s family, and a $585,000 jury verdict for the elderly trip-and-fall victim.
Over the past 35 years, Gordon and his Tampa-based firm have represented thousands of individuals who have been injured, and families whose loved ones have died, as a result of medical malpractice, automobile negligence, security hazards and defective products.
Wide-Ranging Trial Experience, Extensive Resources
Gordon first came to prominence in 1994 when he successfully represented more than 120 women injured as a result of silicone breast implants in cases against the pharmaceutical manufacturers. He is also nationally recognized for his efforts to overcome tribal sovereign immunity on behalf of critically injured clients in multiple lawsuits filed against the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Gordon and his team have obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements in cases ranging from surgical errors to failed hospital equipment to catastrophic vehicular accidents and boat explosions.
As confirmed by Gordon, the vast majority of the firm’s cases are referred by other attorneys who seek experienced co-counsel and greater resources to handle complex personal injury and medical malpractice cases. Founded in 1976, Maney|Gordon employs 18 attorneys in three states, including a primary trial team of six attorneys who have 15 or more years of courtroom experience each.
“A trial conducted properly is a major production; it takes experience and money to fully demonstrate to the jury what has occurred, both in terms of liability and the impact that the injury or death causes the survivors,” Gordon says. “A two-week trial with the best expert witnesses and the best exhibits, carefully prepared and focus group presented, can cost in excess of six figures. We are proud to share our trial expertise, as well as our extensive resources, with the attorneys and firms that choose to partner with us.”
