Preventable Consequences

If you or a member of your family has recently been harmed by an act of medical negligence — protect your rights to fair compensation.

Obtaining Fair Compensation for Prescription Error and Surgical Malpractice Victims Since 1988

At Gillis & Bikofsky, we take great pride in being able to provide injured people in the Boston area and throughout eastern Massachusetts with high levels of both experience and personal service.

What kind of experience are we talking about? First, each of our four lawyers has been practicing law for at least 20 years. Second, each has also proven their ability to successfully handle the complex legal issues associated with medical malpractice cases. Third, we have the kind of experience other attorneys look for when they need to refer clients with difficult cases to another firm.

Harmed by a Prescription Error?

Hospitals and pharmacies are busy places where hundreds or thousands of medication orders can be dispensed or filled within a single day. That said — preventing mistakes only takes a few seconds. Our firm holds medical providers accountable for:

  • Contraindicated prescription errors
  • Pharmacy prescription errors
  • Medication mistakes made by nursing staff
  • Overmedication (using too much medication in order to control a patient, often seen in abusive nursing homes)

Injured as the Result of a Surgical Mistake?

Surgery always has its risks. However, if normal standards of care are followed by the surgical team and the surgeon(s) involved — these risks can be managed. If not, serious and irreparable harm may result. Our practice includes:

  • Operating on the wrong part of the body
  • Failing to detect leaks or hemorrhages
  • Leaving surgical implements in the body
  • Using tainted human blood or tissue
  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Infections caused by a non-sterile environment or instruments
