Atlanta Medical Malpractice Attorney
Are you a victim of medical malpractice?
When a person is in pain, sick or injured, he or she depends upon the doctors, nurses, and other staff to be exacting in the care they provide. Unfortunately the care given by health care professionals does not always meet the standards set by the profession. Errors in diagnosis and treatment are far more common than the average person knows. When mistakes are made in prescribing or administering medications or an error is made during a surgical procedure, serious, even catastrophic, injuries or death can result. If you suspect you have suffered from medical malpractice, it is urgent that you seek the assistance of a respected medical malpractice lawyer quickly.
Medical malpractice includes mistakes and any failure to provide care which meets professional standards on the part of pharmacists, doctors, nurses, therapists, dentists, surgeons and any other health care professionals. Serious errors in diagnosis or treatment may cause permanent or catastrophic injury or loss of life, serious medical conditions requiring long term treatment, and are grounds for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit such as:
- Failure to diagnose or wrong diagnosis;
- Failure to treat or wrong treatment;
- Medication errors such as wrong medication, wrong dosage or unnecessary medication;
- Surgical errors;
- Anesthesia mistakes;
- Birth injuries;
- Medical errors resulting in death.
Medical malpractice claims often involve highly technical issues which require the testimony of experts to ensure a jury fully understands the condition and the breach of duty of care that took place. The doctor or hospital's insurance company has attorneys who are skilled in contesting these cases, and you will need an equally determined and talented trial lawyer to fight for your rights.
