Suffering from any injury can be a terrifying experience. These injuries are even worse when they are because of the poor decisions of a trusted healthcare professional. When you need to receive medical attention, you believe that doctors, nurses, and hospitals will provide you with the highest quality of care.

It can be tough to prove medical malpractice cases
Many lawyers handle medical malpractice cases, but not all of them are successful. These cases can be very complicated, so you need someone knowledgeable about building your case. In Georgia, you need to prove two things to establish medical malpractice:
- The medical professional did not meet an applicable standard of care. Your medical professional is responsible for providing a level of care for your condition that will not cause harm.
- Your injuries are due to a substandard quality of care that you received from your healthcare provider. There must be a link between your injuries and the negligence of your medical treatment (or lack of medical treatment).
Often, proving a link between your injuries and negligence from your healthcare provider can be difficult. These cases require extensive investigation, which can include statements from expert witnesses. We use every resource we have to thoroughly investigate your case while gathering the necessary information to strengthen your claim.
What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional does not give you the proper “standard of care.” These cases can be challenging to prove because the first question is about the definition of “standard of care”. How do you determine what was proper and appropriate care for the victim? Then you have to prove that the healthcare professional deviated from the applicable standard.
Many victims are worried about seeking a medical malpractice suit because they think their doctors will no longer treat them. Some fear that they will end up paying more for their medical treatments. We recommend filing a medical malpractice suit regardless so that you can get the compensation that you deserve.
