You have complete trust in health care providers, so it’s hard to understand it when they harm you. You can’t help but feel betrayed when your health care provider engages in medical malpractice. The bond of trust has been broken, and you’re left picking up the pieces. You have to put your time and energy into recovering, all while trying to survive on a limited income if you can’t work due to your injuries. As devastating as that is, your situation is made even worse because it could have been avoided if the provider had met the standard of care. You are under a lot of stress, and that stress reaches a new level when you have to deal with the provider’s insurance company. The company doesn’t want to give you the compensation you deserve, but fortunately, we can fight back and recover your financial losses by filing a medical malpractice claim.

Medical Malpractice Claim Basics
Medical malpractice claims are among the most complicated in the Georgia legal system. The victim must prove that the provider failed to meet the standard of care and that that caused the injury. Also, the victim must determine the responsible party. Sometimes, the responsible party isn’t the health care provider; instead, it is the medical facility. While the victim works to build a case, the medical malpractice insurance company will do the same. The company will strive to prove that the defendant was not negligent or that the negligence did not cause the injury. While the company hopes to avoid paying compensation, it might offer a small settlement to make the case disappear. Dealing with the insurance company is difficult, so it’s wise to consult with a medical malpractice attorney before moving forward.
When you consult with an attorney, you don’t necessarily have to file a lawsuit. Instead, you have the option of settling the case out of court. Your attorney will go over the medical malpractice case with you and help you determine the best course of action, so you can get the compensation you deserve.
Medical Malpractice Accidents
Medical malpractice occurs in Atlanta for numerous reasons. Often, these cases are the result of malpractice during birth that leads to injuries, such as brain trauma or fractures. Malpractice claims also occur when providers fail to properly diagnosis patients, causing their medical problems to worsen. Misdiagnosis and failure to treat can also occur, as can prescription errors. In each of these cases, it’s only malpractice if the provider was negligent in breaching the standard of care. Proper representation is necessary when investigating and filing medical malpractice claims. Hiring an attorney before filing a malpractice claim can help people hold medical professionals and facilities accountable.
“As a former felony prosecutor, I believe that there is no fight that is too small or too big to fight when seeking justice for my clients.”
Do I have a case?
If you or a loved one was injured as a result of negligence, you might have a case against the health care provider or facility. You must file the claim before the statute of limitations runs out and meet other criteria to have a successful claim. Getting an experienced medical malpractice attorney is the first step in building a successful case, so you can get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. Your attorney will help you recover damages to protect you today and in the future.
How much is my case worth?
Your case must be evaluated to determine how much it is worth. An experienced attorney can look at the evidence, your injury, the circumstances surrounding the case, and more to give you a good idea of how much you can expect to recover. Depending on the nature of your clam, you might be eligible to recover both economic and noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering.
