Your Rights Concerning Medical Malpractice

By Grant Law Office on July 20, 2015

As you might know, Georgia Senate Bill 86 failed to pass this spring. This is a good thing for residents of the Peach State. Senate Bill 86, or the Patient Compensation Act, would’ve created a new administrative system, the first of its kind in the country, which would handle all malpractice claims instead of the courts.

We feel that such a system would be unconstitutional because it denies the right of patients to have their complaints heard by a jury of their peers, a central part of our country’s legal system. We also believe that this law would’ve led to more bureaucracy and higher healthcare costs.

When you get treated by a medical professional, you want to know they are properly trained and have your best interests in mind. Doctors, nurses and hospitals have a duty to care for you. If there’s a breakdown in this relationship of trust and duty, the healthcare professional or facility needs to be held responsible. Decisions about this responsibility should be made in a court of law.

While medical malpractice may include such serious results as death or permanent disability, it can also include more minor incidents, such as misdiagnosis or wrong medication. When a medical worker or facility is negligent in any way, a patient has the right to compensation. If you feel that you have suffered as a result of medical malpractice, you need to consult an attorney experienced in these matters. Medical malpractice law is extremely complex and not all lawyers are knowledgeable enough to navigate it. The Georgia personal injury attorneys at Grant Law Office have years of medical malpractice claims expertise and can get you the results you deserve.
