We rely today on medicine for everything. Whether it is a broken leg, a cold or flu, a constant headache or a car crash, we know that doctors will be there to “fix everything.” Or so we think. Sadly, with as much as we rely on the medical system today, there are more and more cases of magical negligence and malpractice than ever. Doctors are making false diagnosis and then preforming the wrong surgery, implants are causing metallic poising in patients bodies, babies aren’t being handled properly during birth; the list goes on.
The Tolson Firm, LLC was established because of this very concern, because there are too many victims who feel as though they have no hope for justice or compensation and we want to be there to offer the legal representation they deserve. Audrey Tolson graduated from Georgia State University with her Juris Doctorate law degree in 1995, and has been a member of the state bar ever since. With 16 years of law experience under her belt, she spent the majority of that time with a prestigious firm in Atlanta only to discover in 2011 that she felt it was time to move forward and begin her own practice. She has since created the Tolson Law Firm with a purpose of focusing of those injuries victims have received by way of medical malpractice or negligence.
With close to two decades of legal experience she is well known and acknowledged in her state as a personal injury attorney, having been awarded the Top 100 Female lawyers in her state, named as Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ Under 40, among many others. For a full listing of her experience, education and accolades click here. Ms. Tolson’s heart for the people of her community is evident in her love for non-profit organizations, and she is currently on the board for many different groups that seek to help those in need and at risk.
Medical negligence is very common, and our firm specifically deals with personal injury cases in the medical field. Many times, an illness or injury can cause not also large amounts of pain and suffering, but it can also cause a lot of financial stress on an individual or family. While many people do have medical coverage to some extent, it is very likely that the insurance can only cover so much, even the deductibles can be overwhelming for some patients. Our firm has had experience in a variety of different medical negligence cases and we are ready to ready to represent those who feel as though they have been unlawfully treated and are in need of compensation. Categories we represent are situations like: surgical errors, brain injuries, birth injuries, anesthesia errors, misdiagnosis, Kaiser medical malpractice, wrongful death and so much more.
Kaiser Permanente is a leading medical care facility in the United States, with almost 9 million people currently under their medical plan. Despite the fact they are among the largest medical corporations in our country, they are still not perfect; and many medical negligence cases have arisen behind their doors. Here at the Tolson Law Firm we have experience specifically handling Kaiser medical malpractice cases, and we want to help you as well. Anesthesia errors are another common occurrence for patients, and for those who are unable to handle pain, this may be a big deal. Anesthesia is the drug that is generally used during a surgery in order to “put someone under” or place them into a deep and pain free sleep. Unfortunately, there have been many issues with anesthesia in the past including not giving the patient enough for the pain, overdose therefore causing other issues, allergic reactions, negligent monitoring of the patient and many more. While this may be a simple process, the results if not done properly may have severe consequences.
Wrongful death is among one of the greatest concerns in the medical field, especially when the family is trying to decide whether it was a direct result of the person’s injury or illness, or because of an error made by the medical professional. At our firm, even if you are uncertain about there that line is, contact us and we can sit down together and discuss the details of the situation. If we are able to find a link to the death being not an act of nature, then we may have a wrongful death case. When a person loses a loved one, spouse, parent, or dependent family member not only can the emotional suffering be overwhelming but also the lost wages and medical expenses prior to their death. By filing a wrongful death claim we can seek to retrieve the financial compensation that the family deserves in that trying time. Unfortunately, no amount of money will ever bring a lost loved one back, but it can help the situation.
Medical malpractice is a very sensitive subject for any individual or family, and at our firm we are committed to offering our clients the compassion and care they need during this legal process. We understand the high stress levels you are likely experiencing, on top of the pains and discomforts and as we seek to be patient and kind with you, we strive for an aggressive representation before the court.
