We Will Always Fight Back After A “Never Event”

In 2011, the former CEO of the National Quality Forum coined the term “never event” to refer to clear incidents of grave and often preventable medical negligence or malpractice. If hospitals, nursing homes and other care facilities faithfully fulfill their responsibilities to patients, such incidents should never, ever occur.

At the Florida law firm of Cronin & Maxwell, PL, we are committed to investigating the medical care provided to our clients and determining whether they have been injured through medical negligence. Our Jacksonville “never events” attorneys have more than 20 years of experience working with qualified physicians and nurses to review the evidence and build strong malpractice claims.

Types Of Serious, Reportable And Adverse Events

Negligent doctors, nurses, hospitals, nursing homes and others must be held accountable for their actions. If you experience any of the following
