An Atlanta Medical Malpractice Attorney Can Help
When medical malpractice happens, it changes your life forever.
Medical errors, such as anesthesia mistakes, birth injury, delayed diagnosis, physician error, and hospital negligence, can have devastating health consequences.
Medical malpractice laws are designed to make it too costly for common citizens to have access to our courts. The laws are created to give an advantage to the powerful and to disadvantage you.
Act quickly. Malpractice cases have short deadlines. They require significant time to prepare.
Evidence can be lost. Evidence can be destroyed. The earlier you hire an experienced malpractice law firm, the better your chances are for success.
Most doctors and medical professionals are honest. They want to take action to correct a medical mistake. However, medical malpractice insurance companies play by different rules.
Insurance companies are in business to make money. They will delay and deny your claim. They know malpractice cases are complicated. They know malpractice cases are costly.
Insurance companies will try to make your case so frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive that you want to give up.
Don't let them.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, you should speak with an Atlanta malpractice attorney.

Do I Have a Good Medical Malpractice Case?
The first thing we do is determine if you have a good medical malpractice case.
Good medical malpractice cases generally share two important traits. First, successful medical malpractice cases often involve a significant injury or wrongful death.
Not all medical mistakes are medical malpractice. There are many risks in medical care. For instance, if you suffer from a known medical complication or risk during surgery, your case may be difficult to win. On the other hand, many medical errors and injuries are avoidable. These cases can give rise to a good medical malpractice lawsuit.
Second, there should be evidence that the treatment your doctor or healthcare provider performed violated an established medical standard of care.
The medical standard of care is a rule designed to protect you and to prevent physician error. It is the minimum degree of care to which all patients are entitled to expect. The standard of care can only be established by expert testimony.
Malpractice claims are uniquely complex and expensive.
All medical malpractice cases start with a battle of the experts. Under Georgia law you cannot even file a malpractice lawsuit without first hiring an expert.
This expert must identify the medical standard of care that applies to your case. This expert must testify about how it was violated. This expert must explain how the violation specifically harmed you. And, that's just the beginning.
By the time you reach trial, your case may involve numerous experts. Your out-of-pocket expenses can easily exceed $100,000.
Simply put, medical malpractice laws are designed to make it too costly for common citizens to have access to our courts. The laws are created to give an advantage to the powerful and to disadvantage you.
