When seeking medical treatment for an injury or illness, it is natural to trust your medical providers to do the best they can to correct the problem. Unfortunately, doctors and other medical professionals are human and sometimes make mistakes. The consequences of these mistakes can be catastrophic to the patient and their family. Paralysis, brain damage, loss of use of a limb, serious infection, amputation, and death are often unfortunate unintended results of preventable medical negligence or medical malpractice.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of preventable medical negligence, you may be forced to handle crushing debt from medical bills and a significant and permanent change in your life activities.
Under Georgia law, victims of medical malpractice can recover money damages as compensation for their loss. In addition, victims may recover damages for their physical and emotional pain and suffering and loss of consortium. Common forms of preventable medical negligence/medical malpractice include:
- Misdiagnosis of an illness or disease
- Failure to diagnose a disease or condition (ex. breast cancer)
- Delayed diagnosis of a serious condition
- Failure to Properly Prescribe Medication
- Death and Permanent Injury as a result of Anesthesia Errors
- Infections Following Surgery
- Surgical Errors
- Labor and delivery errors (ex. still born births due to delivery errors)
