Wayne Grant – GA Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Attorney
Every year I take on one or two cases without charging any attorney fee. That’s right no attorney fee at all! Why do I do that? Let me tell you the story of 4-year-old Brianna. Brianna came to my office with her parents and she was absolutely gorgeous. I noticed that she had scarring on her forehead. I found out that Brianna had suffered seizures and was sent to the hospital in order to have a 24-hour EEG test. In essence, what they do is they take a headband and place it on the forehead, which has electrodes underneath it, and they monitor the brainwaves for 24-hour period.
When the patient returns to the hospital, they download this information and try to get to the bottom of things. When this procedure was done on Brianna and they removed the headband she had open wounds. She suffered serious open wounds and a result of the mis-application of the electrode headband. She has had scar revision surgery will have permanent scarring as a result, and will probably have future surgeries.
Many lawyers are reluctant to get involved in a case like this because although is appears to be clear cut, a case like this could drag on for years and the expenses associated with handling it in terms of paying expert witnesses and other costs, can be incredibly significant. I decided to not let that stand in my way, and I agreed to represent little Brianna without charge. I am proud to say that we are on the way to a successful resolution of her case.
