Medical malpractice can range from a botched procedure to a wrongful death case in Atlanta. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Medical Negligence is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. Regrettably, many patients choose not to pursue valid medical malpractice claims for numerous reasons: Some are concerned that other medical professionals will learn of their medical malpractice cases and refuse to treat them. Some fear that it will lead to an increase in the cost of their medical care.

And others waive valid medical malpractice claims due to the perceived personal and financial costs associated with litigation even most lawyers, including the Atlanta Medical Malpractice Attorneys at The Brown Firm, don't get paid unless you do. Our Personal Injury Lawyers are here to help you!

What is Medical Malpractice or Medical Negligence?

Medical malpractice occurs when medical professionals deviate from the recognized “standard of care” in the treatment of a patient. Many medical malpractice cases turn on this question: What was the medical "standard of care" in the situation in question? 

The “standard of care” is based on the customary practices of the average physician given the scope of their practice, i.e., what the average physician would customarily or typically do in similar circumstances.Best Atlanta Medical Malpractice Lawyers to ensure all rights reserved

A medical negligence claim exists when a medical professional’s negligence causes injury, wrongful death, or damages to a patient.

The standard of care for physicians is that they must exercise such reasonable care and skill for their patients as under similar conditions is ordinarily employed by the medical profession.

Hospitals also owe their patients the duty of using reasonable care to furnish equipment and facilities suited to the purposes intended for optimum results. 

Medical Malpractice is a departure from good and accepted medical care causing injury. As with anyone, medical professionals are held accountable for their actions.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Examples of Medical Malpractice?

Medical Malpractice can come in many forms including:
  • Birth injuries – injuries to the child and mother during the birthing process, such as broken bones, brain damage, and even cerebral palsy.
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose – incorrect treatment that results in harm to the patient, or a failure to treat a condition in time.  Emergency room errors are a common cause.
  • Medication Errors – this is the most common form of medical malpractice.  A doctor may prescribe the wrong drug, hospital staff may give an incorrect dosage, or a pharmacist may dispense the wrong medication.
  • Surgical Errors – examples include operating on the wrong part of the body, making mistakes that cause loss of a bodily function or even paralysis, or not providing adequate care after surgery.  Inadequate care after surgery can also lead to post-operative infections.

What do I Need to File a Medical Malpractice Claim?

Trying to file a medical malpractice case on your own can be nearly impossible. It will take the talents of an experienced medical malpractice attorney if you want to win your case and obtain the compensation that you deserve. 

In order to prove a medical professional was negligent it will be up to your Medical Malpractice Attorney to prove the following: 

  • The medical professional owed the injured person a certain standard of care. 
  • The duty of care was breached. 
  • The patient was injured as a result of this breach. 
  • The patient suffered significant damages, such as pain and suffering, lost wages, or medical expenses due to the injuries that were sustained. 

What is the Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice?

The statute of limitations varies depending on the type of injury suffered. For example, in Georgia, the general statute of limitations for a medical malpractice lawsuit is two years; however, there are rare exceptions that can either extend or shorten a patient’s time limit for filing a lawsuit.

The statute of limitations for Medical Malpractice in Georgia or South Carolina falls into one of two categories:

  • Medical malpractice claims following a “failure to diagnose” may be given a limited extension by the court, depending on the facts of the claim. In these cases, the two-year time limit begins on the date the injury was realized.
  • Medical malpractice claims resulting from an injury must be filed within two years from the date of the injury

What Can I Get Compensation For in a Medical Malpractice Case?

If you suffered an injury and believe it was due to a medical malpractice error, you could be entitled to receive compensation for the following:

  • Lost Wages
  • Medical Bills
  • Home Health Care
  • Physical Therapy

We all rely on medical professionals to make us well, so when their actions lead to a worsening our condition, or further injury, they should be held fully liable for the damage they inflicted.

How Much Does a Medical Malpractice Lawyer Cost?

If you are involved in a medical malpractice incident, the type of attorney you can hire to represent you is called a Personal Injury Attorney. These attorneys specialize in helping the victims of accidents caused by someone else's negligence get financial compensation.

Thankfully, these attorneys work on what is called a Contingency Fee Basis. A Contingency Fee Basis means that you do not pay any legal fees upfront, and your attorneys only collect a fee in the form of a small percentage of your final settlement.
