Medical Malpractice


FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE IN MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASES INVOLVES WORKING WITH ATTORNEYS THAT KNOW HOW TO PREPARE FOR TRIAL

Medical negligence or malpractice is negligence committed by a professional health care provider – a doctor, nurse, dentist, psychiatrist, podiatrist, hospital or hospital worker – whose performance or duties departs from a standard of care of those with similar training and experience, resulting in harm to a patient. Medical negligence can result from a failure to act or from acting improperly.

WHAT IS MEDICAL MALPRACTICE?

Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care, or a failure to use the same degree of care that a reasonably prudent person (i.e. doctor) would use under same or similar circumstances. Some types of medical negligence may be:

  • Dental malpractice
  • Delay in diagnosis
  • Missed diagnosis
  • Surgical and/or anesthesia error
  • Improper consent before a procedure
  • Birth injury, including cerebral palsy and brain damage

LACK OF OXYGEN AND BRAIN INJURY CAUSED BY MALPRACTICE

The lack of oxygen caused by anesthesia, childbirth injury, stroke or misdiagnosis of a medical condition could result in lasting or permanent brain injury. Victims and their families know the significant loss and lifetime consequences of a brain injury.  We offer experienced counsel and advocacy focused on helping the victims and families recover the compensation they deserve.

Whether a brain injury affects your child or your spouse or your parent, it is among the most devastating injuries for a family to have to face. The financial costs and emotional costs can seem overwhelming. With help, you can live through this. We are Atlanta brain injury attorneys with experience handling cases involving:

  • Problem childbirth when the umbilical cord is kinked or the placenta detaches or dies

WE WILL INVESTIGATE CASES INVOLVING BRAIN INJURY OR SURGICAL MISTAKES

WE WILL FIGHT FOR YOUR LOVED ONES

Our job is to represent clients who have sustained injuries in a wide variety of accidents. Over time, we have become familiar with the types of injuries those accidents inflict. There are bad injuries, like broken bones and injured ligaments. There are severe injuries that require short hospital stays and physical therapy. And then, there are catastrophic injuries.

As your lawyers, we will work with medical experts to gather evidence regarding the cause of the brain injury and the likely short-term and long-term effects of the injury on you or your loved one. We are skilled at medical research. This is evidenced through our years of success in the courtroom.
