Do I Have A Medical Malpractice Claim?

Essentially, medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, or other member of the medical staff, fails to competently perform his or her duties while treating a patient ― and the patient is ultimately injured as a result. Typically, these negligent acts occur when the medical professional ignores, or simply does not adhere to, the basic standards of medical practice.

There are many medical mistakes that may give rise to a malpractice claim, including:

  • Medication errors, which can result from giving a patient the wrong medication or an incorrect dosage
  • Surgical mistakes, such as anesthesia-related errors, leaving a foreign object inside the patient or even operating on the wrong part of the body
  • Diagnosis errors, which can include the misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a patient's medical condition
  • Birth injuries, which can result in nerve damage as well as brain injuries

Victims of medical malpractice in Georgia may be entitled to compensations, including damages for additional medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
