A local lawyer, with a track record of success in a number of cases, could be the perfect candidate for a malpractice lawsuit, a source at one of Lubbocks largest firms told us.
“If he has an excellent track record in cases involving medical malpractice and the insurance industry, then he could potentially win a case,” said attorney Andrew Gaffney, who represents malpractice plaintiffs in Lumberjack, a firm with offices in Litchfield and Austin.
Gaffneys son is also a lawyer, and he is currently the head of litigation at the firm.
Gaffe-Free Lubbons Medical Malpractice Lawyers Lubbones lawyers have a history of malpractice lawsuits.
In fact, they’ve gone to the extent of suing the hospital and doctors that practice in Littlerock to get them to fix what they believe to be problems with their medical practices.
Gafferty was one of those malpractice lawyers.
After a year of litigation, he was able to get a $3.5 million judgment against the hospital for malpractice for “misleading the public” in its coverage of the Zika virus.
The hospital settled out of court, which resulted in a $2.2 million payout for the Gaffys.
The case was dismissed.
Lubbos lawyers are known for going after doctors and hospitals.
They sued the hospital after it refused to pay a $4 million payment for its treatment of a patient who had been infected with Zika.
Gafsner, who filed the suit, was able get a settlement from the hospital.
Giffords, the daughter of a former congressman, has faced similar litigation in recent years, after her medical practices were found to have falsified patient records.
Guffers daughter, meanwhile, has sued the Texas Medical Board for $1.5 billion for malinvestment.
GFFS’ attorneys filed the lawsuit against the board, which was led by former Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, for fraud, forgery, and misrepresentation.
The board ultimately settled with Gifford for $300 million.
And Giffards attorney is looking at a case against the Texas Health Resources and Services Commission, which regulates the medical industry, for the same malpractice violations.
“We have always believed that the board is the appropriate entity to conduct the investigation into the medical malpractices in Liddell County,” Gaffreys attorney wrote in an email to the Lubbonian.
“While the board has not yet filed a report, we are confident that the Liddelton attorney has identified and documented the issues and is doing everything in his power to correct them.”
Gaffreys son is one of the most prolific malpractice litigators in the state, and was named by the Lippincott Award for Best Legal Action in Texas.
In addition to his current practice, Gaffers son, Andrew Guffrey, is the chief legal counsel for the Texas Bar Association, which has a reputation for being very active in malpractice cases.
His clients include Texas Attorney Generals office, state senator, state representative, state senators, and state representative-elect.
Gffreys law firm was awarded the Lobbying Reform Award in 2013, a top honor in the field of political fundraising.
And as a registered lobbyist, he has donated to many local political campaigns and political parties.
Geffreys attorneys are very aggressive in the malpractice field, which is why they have a reputation as one of, if not the best, malpractice defense attorneys in the country.
And the law firm is no stranger to lawsuits either.
Gefreys practice of law started in 1999, when he was a student at George Mason University Law School.
After graduating from law school, he worked in litigation in Washington, D.C., before becoming a partner at Giffreys Lippings law firm.
He also represented patients and plaintiffs in numerous malpractice suits, including a $5 million settlement from a woman in Texas who suffered an accidental death from Zika.
But the first serious malpractice case he faced was the one against him and his firm.
A year after he became a partner, he received a letter from a patient’s father who was unable to pay the bill.
“I called him and said, ‘Hey, dad, I’m writing you this letter because I think you owe me money,’ and he said, well, I don’t know what it is,” Giffreys son said.
“He wrote me back and said that he had been trying to resolve the problem, and that he was unable because of malpractice laws.
I said, OK, that’s fine, but what about the money?”
Gaffes son said he thought about that for a minute and called his father back.
“Dad, you owe him $10,000,” Gaffersey said he told his father. Giffin
