What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice in Georgia is a general term which describes the negligence of a medical professional such as a doctor, nurse or other medical staff.  Malpractice occurs when the legal standards of practice or conduct are not followed and an error occurs that results in the injury of the patient or client.  Medical malpractice or medical negligence provides an opportunity for someone who suffers a physical, emotional or mental injury at the hands of the doctor, nurse, or other hospital worker during a treatment to receive compensation for these injuries.  Additionally, some acts of medical malpractice may result in the wrongful death of a loved one.

Time is of the Essence

Georgia medical malpractice has unique statutes of limitations which make it essential to consult with a lawyer immediately after your medical malpractice injury.  In Georgia, any doctor that causes an injury or wrongful death of the patient may be held accountable for the injuries which result.  In addition to holding doctors, surgeons, nurses and other hospital and medical staff responsible for their actions - you may also bring a medical malpractice against for a failure to do something which would have helped the patient.  Many medical malpractice cases are very complicated, especially with some laws in place limiting your available recovery, so we recommend that you speak with a Georgia Medical Malpractice Attorney to discuss the events of your injury.

Medical Malpractice is More Common Than You Might Expect

Medical malpractice is more common than most people expect, where a recent study reported that over 225,000 hospital patients die every year where the major cause of those deaths is medical negligence resulting in malpractice. 

A Lawsuit Can Be Brought Against Any Licensed Medical Health Care Professional

A Georgia medical malpractice lawsuit can be made against any licensed medical health care professional by the inured patient or the family of the patient who has died.  Licensed medical health care providers may include:

  • doctors
  • nurses
  • support staff
  • psychologists
  • psychotherapists
  • chiropractors
  • surgeons
  • physicians
  • pediatricians
  • dentists
  • counselors

The type of care that patients should receive while they are undergoing a medical treatment from a doctor includes the doctor acting in a professional, legal manner and exercising caution to protect the life of their patient. If this standard of care is not performed, then you may have a case for medical malpractice, and you should speak with our Georgia lawyers immediately.
