There are few occupations that we trust, and the healthcare industry is generally at the very top. When you go to a hospital, you are putting your life in someone else’s hands. Although most healthcare professionals are trustworthy, some aren’t. There are also healthcare professionals that make mistakes.
Seth Bader is a medical malpractice lawyer in Rome, Ga that understands the sensitive nature of these cases. Not only do you have to discuss your injuries, but we have to prove that your injuries were the result of your healthcare provider’s negligence. Since these cases can be very complicated, we recommend contacting our offices immediately. We need to go over the details of your case so that we can build you the most substantial claim possible.
What is medical malpractice?
If you have received injuries at the hand of your doctor, you might be questioning their competency. Yes, you trust your doctor, but did the negligence of your doctor cause your injuries? In Georgia, there are two things that you need to prove in a medical malpractice case:
- The defendant, your healthcare provider, failed to meet an acceptable “standard of care.”
- The injuries you have are a result of your healthcare professional, not providing the right “standard of care.”
Medical malpractice occurs when you aren’t given the proper standard of care. Then, you have injuries and damages as a result of this lapse in care. So, you can file a medical malpractice claim to receive compensation for these medical bills and other costs.
What are some common causes of medical malpractice?
Each case is different, but there are some similarities between cases that we have handled. Some causes of medical malpractice include:
- Ordering the wrong tests
- Reading tests or bloodwork incorrectly
- Not properly going over the patient’s medical history
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Giving the inappropriate amount of anesthesia
- Performing a procedure without the proper knowledge or skill
These are only some of the many different types of medical malpractice cases that we have handled. Just because we haven’t listed your specific situation, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have a case. We can’t give you any legal advice until you come into our office, so call to make your appointment.
Do I need an attorney?
Yes. Medical malpractice cases are some of the most complex personal injury lawsuits. It would be best if you had an experienced attorney that has handled and won cases. Don’t be afraid to ask your attorney if they have taken cases to trial and if they were successful. You will be putting the outcome of your settlement in the hands of whatever attorney you hire. Make sure that you make the right choice!
