Atlanta Medical Malpractice Attorney
Personal Injury Lawyer for Medical Malpractice Cases in Atlanta
Medical malpractice consists of negligence on the part of a medical or health care professional when treating someone which results in injury or death to the patient. This type of malpractice can be committed by any medical professional, including emergency technicians, doctors, nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, dentists, therapists, and more. If you or someone you know has been physically injured due to the nonstandard or negligent actions or inactions of a health care provider in the Atlanta area, it is vital that you contact the Atlanta medical malpractice lawyer at the firm for a consultation about your case as soon as possible. Because of a statute of limitations, a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit must be initiated within two years from the date of injury or death.
Medical Malpractice Cases
Medical malpractice cases are often complicated and technical in nature, involving expert witnesses who have sufficient knowledge, training, or experience to give testimony regarding the issues involved and whose testimony must meet certain qualifications to be considered reliable. In order to be successful in a medical malpractice claim, it must be proven that the medical provider failed to provide standard care in his or her treatment of the patient and that by doing so an injury resulted.
The damages that you may seek in a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit include both compensation and punitive damages. Compensation may include financial losses such as loss of wages, medical expenses for both past and future medical care, and life care expenses. Non-economic damages may be recovered for the injury itself, such as the loss of an organ or limb or for a disability, and for psychological harm, such as pain and emotional trauma.
In any case of medical malpractice, it is important to retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney who is well-versed in the laws and legal process. The Atlanta medical malpractice attorney at the firm has over 20 years of legal experience to use on your behalf.
