Michelle Gomer – Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
HSM filed a medical malpractice lawsuit on behalf of Michelle Gomer, a mother of three whose concerns about a lump on her breast were repeatedly ignored by doctors at Doctor Today, LLC. Due to the negligence of the doctors and nurses at Doctor Today, Ms. Gomer eventually was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer. After she entered hospice, HSM, along with co-counsel, settled her case for policy limits and she passed away 12 hours later knowing her children would have some financial security.
