When you seek treatment from a healthcare professional, you expect high-quality care, attentiveness, and professionalism. Unfortunately, some patients suffer at the hands of their healthcare providers.

There are several ways doctors, nurses, and other professionals may behave negligently. Individuals who experience direct harm due to a medical professional failing to abide by their duty of care may choose to file a medical malpractice case against the practitioner. However, successful medical negligence claims require a great deal of evidence, attention to detail, and an in-depth understanding of medical liability. We understand how sensitive and personal medical malpractice cases are to clients, which is why we work diligently to provide each of our clients with comprehensive legal guidance as they navigate these sensitive issues.

Understanding Medical Negligence

Medical facilities are not immune to common, everyday errors. These errors may negatively impact your overall experience with your doctor, pharmacist, or other medical providers, but they're often relatively minor issues. These errors are often simple clerical errors caused by a lack of attention to detail and do not cause long-term harm.

Despite how frustrating these situations are for our clients, these cases do not qualify as medical malpractice under Georgia state law. According to the statute of limitations, clients must be able to prove that their medical provider "deviated from the generally accepted standard of care and that a competent doctor performing the same procedure would not have made the same mistake." Additionally, this deviation must have injured or otherwise significantly impacted the client. Finally, most clients must file their medical malpractice lawsuits within two years of the incident.

Cases Outside The Standard
Statute Of Limitations

Each medical negligence case is different. Therefore, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases has some flexibility. For instance, some injuries can take weeks, months, or even years to become problematic. By this point, many clients worry that they've waited too long to address the issue, but that's often not the case. Typically speaking, clients in these unique situations have up to five years after the malpractice occurred to file a lawsuit against the offending physician. Additional scenarios in which negligence took place and medical providers were aware and failed to take action further extend the statute of limitations.

Therefore, if you feel that you may have been a victim of medical malpractice, contacting a medical malpractice attorney is essential. We work with each of our clients on a personal basis and will review the unique details of your case to help you determine the best way to move forward with your case.

Reliability and Care

It's in our nature to trust medical professionals to abide by their duty of care. Experiencing a serious injury at the hand of a professional often leaves us feeling emotionally vulnerable, making it difficult for us to trust professionals in the future.

We understand how difficult it can be to overcome this type of medical trauma, which is why we offer open and honest communication with all of our clients. We will work with you to help you decide how you'd like to move forward with your case. Whether you're looking for resources, guidance, or honest feedback regarding whether your doctor is at fault for your injury, we will work with you to meet your goals and never push you to make decisions that don't meet your needs.
