Trial Lawyers Enforcing the Medical Standard of Care.
Preventable medical errors are the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States, killing over 250,000 patients every year. Sometimes, these errors happen when a physician fails to follow the established rules for diagnosing and treating a suspected condition. However, often these errors are not caused by a single healthcare provider’s carelessness, but rather when rules put in place by hospitals to ensure patient safety are ignored or dismissed. These rules are known as "standards of care," and when you or your loved ones are hurt by a violation of these standards, the Constitution and laws of Florida give you the right to enforce them in the courts of this state.
For the trial attorneys at Faiella & Gulden, P.A., representing patients is a calling that binds a family together. Our founding attorney, Elizabeth H. Faiella, is the daughter of renowned lawyer Rachel Johnson, who was a member of the Texas Bar for 50 years and served as a municipal judge. Elizabeth shares her practice with her son, attorney Peter J. "Tres" Gulden III, and his wife, attorney Rebecca E. Gulden. They center their practice on representing Floridians involved in medical malpractice claims, which ensures that this complex, technical, and demanding area of litigation receives their complete focus.
