Hiring a Georgia Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Representing Victims of Medical Negligence Across Georgia
Healthcare providers and medical professionals are not miracle workers.
However, we expect them to provide proper medical care and uphold their duty of care in the profession.
When a medical expert doesn’t comply with their legal duty, and a medical error occurs, the resulting injuries can be catastrophic and life-altering.
Medical malpractice lawsuits in Georgia tend to be among the most complex types of personal injury claims.
Just the thought of suing a medical professional, hospital, or big insurance company can be intimidating for most people.
That’s why if you or a loved one suffers injury through medical malpractice, you need to speak with a qualified medical malpractice lawyer to assist you.

What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional fails to provide the accepted “standards of care” in their medical field.
Fortunately, medical malpractice laws are meant to protect the victims of medical malpractice.
Your personal injury attorney must demonstrate that a doctor, nurse, healthcare professional, or hospital was negligent in proving that malpractice has occurred.
Then they have to prove that the negligence caused your injury or resulted in wrongful death.
Types of Medical Malpractice
Organ transplant errors
Plastic surgery errors
Any other surgical error
Foreign objects left in the body following surgery
Operating on the wrong patient
Medical Mistakes in Treatment or Diagnosis Failure
Failing to diagnose
Failing to order appropriate diagnostic testing
Failure to adequately review lab results
Failing to recognize and treat medical conditions promptly
Prescription drug medication error
Failing to treat infections
New or untreated medical conditions
Negligent patient supervision
Nursing home negligence
Bedsores (pressure sores or pressure ulcers)
How Can I Prove a Medical Malpractice Claim in Georgia?
If you want to win a medical malpractice lawsuit in Georgia, there are several things you have to prove.
Proving that your medical provider failed to uphold the standards of care requires proving what the standard of care is under similar circumstances. You also need to establish the original connection between the physician’s carelessness and your injuries, which is also challenging.
This is why medical malpractice attorneys rely on medical experts to support their client’s claims.
What Else Do I Need To Prove?
Medical malpractice victims also need to show that their doctor’s failure to comply with standards of care actually caused their injuries.
There can be challenging because when a patient is already sick or injured, it can be hard to prove that the medical provider’s conduct caused the injury.
For example, it can be difficult to prove that incompetent actions caused death if someone already has terminal cancer.
