Meet Carol Goraczko

Florida Registered Paralegal

Carol Goraczko has been in the legal field since 2002 and has been a paralegal with the firm since 2009. She works alongside the attorneys from case inception through trial. Having started her career doing medical malpractice defense, she found her home at STFBC working for plaintiffs who have been catastrophically injured or who have lost a loved one as a result of malpractice. She believes her role as a paralegal is an important one to not only provide justice for those harmed by negligence but to hold people and organizations accountable for their actions with the hope of creating a safer place for us all. She handles the firms’ birth injury, medical malpractice, hazing, product liability, auto negligence, and sexual assault cases, among other areas of practice.

Carol graduated cum laude from Florida International University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology. She has been a Florida Registered Paralegal since 2009 and is also a Notary Public, having used the latter title to officiate weddings for close friends. In 2020 she became commissioned as a remote online notary. Carol is currently the Chapter President of the Broward Chapter of the Paralegal Association of Florida, Inc., Florida’s oldest paralegal association. She is also a board member of the Florida Justice Association, with leadership positions on the South Florida Enrichment Committee and the Paralegal/Legal Assistant of the Year Award Committee. She has enjoyed volunteering in and outside of the legal field, previously serving as a judge during the Miami Dade County High School Mock Trial competition and volunteering in her own kids’ schools as a room mom and past secretary of the PTA. In her spare time, she enjoys playing tennis, boxing, and spending time with her family.

$7.9 Million Record Setting Verdict

Stewart Tilghman Fox Bianchi & Cain, P.A. won a record verdict for a 77-year-old stroke victim who lost the use of the left side of her body due to the negligence of her doctors. Despite being at a higher risk for blood clots and strokes, her cardiologist and electrophysiologist (a heart rhythm specialist) took her off Coumadin—a medication designed for preventing blood clots and strokes. The defendants argued that the patient didn’t deserve a large verdict due to her advanced age and lower life expectancy. The jury saw through their cynical arguments and awarded our client nearly $8 million—the most damages awarded to a malpractice victim over the age of 70 in Florida history.
