Morgan & Morgan
Once a Marine, Always a Marine. It was his service in the United States Marine Corps (1996-2004) that drove Jack T. Cook, Esq. to pursue a career in law as the opportunity to serve his country abroad ignited a desire to dedicate his life to the protection of the weak against the powerful. Today, Mr. Cook devotes his practice solely to seeking justice on behalf of citizens who have been injured or killed due to medical negligence, including surgical errors, birth-related injuries, medication errors, caretaker neglect, and misdiagnosis of life-threatening conditions such as stroke, cancer, heart attack, infection, and blood clots. In February 2018, Mr. Cook proudly joined Morgan & Morgan, the largest consumer protection law firm in the United States, and a firm that embodies the core ideals which make up the foundation of his practice: honor, integrity, perseverance, professionalism and a devotion to the people.
“Medical errors are now the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of medical malpractice goes unreported. Most doctors, nurses, hospitals and medical facilities do remarkable and lifesaving work on a daily basis, and always adhere to the standards of practice learned through their education, training and experience. However, there are healthcare providers who ignore these standards, take shortcuts, ignore patient complaints, and make decisions that are unreasonable. Unfortunately, the result of this negligent care and treatment is very often catastrophic injury or death” – Jack T. Cook, Esq.
