MALPRACTICE SHOULD NOT HAPPEN, BUT IT DOES
Doctors take an oath, called the Hippocratic Oath, to “first, do no harm” to their patients. Unfortunately, negligence in the medical profession is all too common and good people are needlessly hurt or even killed every day.
Medical malpractice cases are often complex and require extensive research and work even before a case can be pursued. In fact, Georgia law requires that all medical malpractice cases have an expert medical doctor sign an affidavit that is filed in the lawsuit stating how the at-fault doctor was medically negligent and violated the applicable medical standard of care.
Medical malpractice cases are rarely resolved without the need of filing a lawsuit. That is why it is critically important to seek legal representation as soon as possible so that there is time to conduct the necessary research and locate the appropriate medical expert to assist with your case.
Medical errors take a variety of forms such as:
- Birth Injuries
- Improper Medication
- Cerebral/Erb’s Palsy
- Associated Disease Not Diagnosed
- Plastic Surgery Errors
- Blood Transfusion Errors
- Nursing Errors
- Surgical Errors
- Wrong Area Surgeries
- And Much More…
Many medical errors cause immediate harm or death while others may be unknown to the patient for some period of time. It is critically important to seek legal advice as soon as the possible error is known or suspected.
When a medical provider is negligent and causes significant injuries and damages, that provider can and should be held accountable. It is important to hold medical doctors, nurses and hospitals accountable when they are negligent to invoke positive change so that others don’t needlessly suffer.
