If you or someone you know has fallen victim of Medical Negligence, Malpractice, or a Doctor's Mistake, you may be able to file a Personal Injury Claim against the negligent party. The complex legal rules of medical malpractice cases almost require you to hire an experienced attorney.
Here are some of the most common questions regarding Medical Malpractice cases in Georgia:
What is Medical Malpractice: When a medical expert fails to provide proper care which leads to harm or death to their patient. A medical malpractice lawyer will be able to help determine if you have an acceptable medical malpractice case.
If I have signed a consent form, have I waived my rights: Signing a consent form does not give a medical professional the right to become negligent when treating you. You do not waive your rights to file a medical malpractice claim if you can establish that the doctor did in fact deviate from the standard of care, and you became injured as a result.
Is Medical Malpractice Common: Medical mistakes leave thousands of people injured or dead every year. However, many medical malpractice cases go unrecognized and unreported, leaving a small amount to seek the compensation they deserve through a lawsuit.
What Should I Do If I Suspect Medical Malpractice: It is critical not to accuse the health care provider immediately. You should find an experienced medical malpractice attorney and explain exactly what happened, try to obtain your medical records so the lawyer can have them reviewed.
