Atlanta Medical Malpractice Liability Lawyers

Who Is to Blame for Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice injury is often the most debilitating, unexpected, and severe harm a person can suffer. When you receive care from a doctor or nurse, you should be able to rest easy knowing that your health is in highly trained hands. Unfortunately, even during the most routine procedures, medical providers are careless, resulting in devastating injuries.

Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional acts negligently, causing harm to the patient. Negligence can occur when the patient is misdiagnosed, the doctor fails to treat the patient in a timely manner, or the doctor prescribes the wrong medication.

Medical errors are on the rise in the state of Georgia. Often, a doctor or hospital will push a victim into an unfavorable settlement early on, or claim that no error was committed. As such, it is important to consult an accomplished medical malpractice lawyer who can assist you with evaluating your claim, exploring your legal options, gathering evidence, and fighting for justice.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional breaches his or her duty to the patient, and as a result of this breach, the patient suffers harm. Because doctors, nurses, and other medical staff receive specialized training and education in order to perform their jobs, they are required to uphold a standard of care when treating patients. This means that they must exercise caution and treat the patient in the manner that a similarly situated medical professional in the same field would.

Common examples of doctor negligence include:

  • Misdiagnosing an illness or providing a delayed diagnosis.
  • Failing to treat an illness when time is of the essence.
  • Providing a controversial treatment or medication.
  • Leaving a surgical instrument inside a patient following surgery.
  • Prescribing the wrong medication or a medication known to interact with other medications the patient is taking.
  • Who Can Be Held Responsible?

    Basically, any healthcare provider who caused or contributed to the negligence and resultant harm may be held legally liable. That includes:
