Georgia Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Understanding Medical Malpractice in Georgia
Medical Malpractice occurs when a person sustains an injury or death due to Negligent Care by a Medical Professional or medical institution.
If you suffer harm that could have been avoided under normal standards of care, then you may have a valid case for seeking injury compensation.
You may have to prove that the medical professional was “grossly negligent,” so contact The Brown Firm and we’ll put our legal and medical experience to work for you.
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 a surgery can also lead to post-operative infections.
