Coping with a serious medical issue can be challenging. People often want to understand why they suffered a severe health problem or complication, and the answers aren’t always clear.
Some may feel their doctor made a mistake but aren’t sure how to prove it. Others might not even consider that malpractice occurred.
If you suspect you or a loved one have suffered from medical malpractice, an attorney can help you determine if there is evidence to support your concerns. Your consultation will be free and confidential, so there is no reason not to learn more.
We also recommend that you speak with a medical malpractice lawyer if you experience any of the following situations that sometimes involve malpractice:
We must show that your doctor acted outside the standard of care for their specialty. Because this is a difficult determination for a layperson, the state of Georgia requires that a medical expert’s affidavit accompany a medical malpractice lawsuit.
In the affidavit, this expert should testify to at least one incidence where the physician failed to act within the standard of care for their profession.
You do not have to worry about finding a medical expert for your case. We work with many experts in various fields and will contact one to review your claim.
If they agree that there is evidence of malpractice, they can help with the affidavit.
It depends on the situation and who actually committed the medical malpractice or neglect. In most cases involving physicians, we will file a lawsuit against the doctor and negotiate with their malpractice insurance carrier.
Georgia doesn’t require malpractice insurance for doctors, but hospitals and healthcare facilities typically require their physicians to carry it. Even those who don’t work for a facility can usually see the value in malpractice insurance.
Generally speaking, the insurance company will want to settle the claim rather than go to court, which is often better for the client. Trials can be time-consuming and stressful, so we will do our best to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company.
However, in rare cases, the insurance carrier may be unwilling to agree on an equitable settlement, and if that happens, we’re always prepared to argue your case in court.
Nurses, therapists, technicians, and other non-physician healthcare workers usually don’t have malpractice insurance. If we believe one of them caused your injuries, we may pursue a claim against the healthcare facility.
They also typically have liability insurance, and we will seek a settlement offer that meets your needs.
In Georgia, you have two years after the date of your injury to file a medical malpractice claim, but in some cases, you may have longer. If you were not immediately aware of the injury or mistake, you have two years from the date when you knew or should have known about it.
There is also a statute of repose of five years from the date of injury, after which you cannot file a lawsuit, regardless of when you found out. If you even suspect you have been the victim of malpractice, we urge you to contact a lawyer sooner rather than later, as we may need time to investigate your case and develop a strategy.
When small children suffer injuries due to medical malpractice, such as birth injuries or surgical mistakes, the effects may not be evident for some time. For example, a baby who experiences a hypoxic brain injury (lack of oxygen to the brain) during birth may have developmental delays and other difficulties as a result.
However, symptoms of these issues may not be noticed for months or years after the birth.
For this reason, in cases involving children, the statute of limitations does not begin until the child’s seventh birthday. Similarly, the statute of repose doesn’t start until the child’s tenth birthday.
You should still contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible if you think a healthcare provider injured your child.

To quickly resolve matters following an accident, insurance companies will offer you less than you deserve in compensation for your injuries.

An experienced personal injury attorney understands how to negotiate with the insurance company and can look out for your best interests by getting you the compensation you deserve after an injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it is important to avoid negotiating or providing recorded statements to the insurance company without first seeking help from a qualified personal injury attorney.
