4 Important Things You Need To Know About Medical Malpractice in Georgia
Medical malpractice is professional negligence by a health care provider where a treatment causes injury or death to a patient, mostly involving medical error.
Most medical malpractice cases can, and will be, very emotional so hiring the right personal injury law attorney will help your case immensely.
These cases are incredibly complicated and having the right attorney will be an important asset in determining compensation and having your best interest.
I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
4 IMPORTANT THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MEDICAL MALPRACTICE IN GEORGIA
- Medical malpractice is not the same as poor medical results. A surgery that goes poorly is not necessarily the fault of the doctor, if the doctor informed the patient of potential risks.
- Most plaintiffs and defense parties must pay their own legal fees. In Georgia, there are several statutes where legal fees can be paid if a party unduly extends the legal proceedings.
- Medical malpractice can be filed as a result from professional negligence or lack of informed consent.
- The statute of limitations is 2 years. Once your claim surpasses two years, your case cannot be filed.
