Protecting the Rights of Patients in Southwest Florida
You trust your doctor to provide you with medical attention that will improve your health. When instead you are injured, the experience can leave you feeling vulnerable and alone. Gunterfirm is available to hold your doctor accountable for your injuries and recover the monetary compensation you need to regain your health. Our firm handles medical malpractice claims against doctors, surgeons, nurses, dentists, chiropractors, hospitals, labs and other medical professionals and entities that botched your care.
Elements of a Medical Malpractice Claim
To prevail on a claim of medical malpractice, you must present sufficient evidence that shows:
- Your medical provider had a duty of care to you: Typically, the fact that you were a patient is enough to show the duty, but multiple providers — in a hospital setting for instance — can complicate the relationships that give rise to the obligations.
- Relevant standard of care: The actions of your doctor are based on the standard of care expected of a similarly situated doctor.
- Your medical provider breached the duty: Our firm proves the doctor acted or omitted to act in a manner that did not conform to the relevant standard of care.
- You were injured because of the breach: We show that your injuries resulted from the doctor’s actions, not from a preexisting condition, an intervening event or an unrelated cause.
- Damages you sustained: During our investigation, Gunterfirm gathers evidence of the nature and extent of your injuries and the resulting damages, such as lost income, disability, emotional suffering, pain and reduced enjoyment of your life.

Types of Malpractice Claims We Handle

- Failure to diagnose a disease

- Failure to warn about risks of treatment
- Surgical error
- Nursing error
- Birth defects and delivery errors

"I am a retired lawyer and an inactive CalBar member. I contacted Mr. Gunter, acting as a business consultant for a small business, regarding a lawsuit against that business within his specialty of employment and labor law. The issues were wrongful termination and Wage-Hour Law violations. I cannot recommend Mr. Gunter highly enough. The results were very favorable."
