Medical Negligence in Atlanta
What Constitutes Medical Negligence in Georgia?
Medical negligence includes taking the wrong action or omitting the correct action in the treatment of a patient by a medical or health care professional. It can also include doing the right action improperly or incompetently. If you or a loved one has suffered from the consequences of medical negligence, you should consult with an Atlanta medical malpractice attorney at our firm as soon as possible, as the consequences of a negligently caused injury can have lasting effects.
No one should be forced to endure the ramifications of another's careless actions alone, so you should not hesitate to exercise your legal rights to pursue compensation if you have been subjected to any of the following medical errors:
- Failing to diagnose a serious illness
- Failing to treat an illness in a timely manner
- Failing to supervise a patient
- Failing to supervise an inexperienced healthcare worker
- Failing to exercise precaution during surgery
- Failing to provide necessary medication
- Failing to correctly administer anesthesia
Medical negligence can result in further injury, illness and even death. The result can be huge medical bills for treatments that were wrong or unnecessary. It can result in the patient being unable to work thus compounding the problems with a lack of income to pay the medical bills. When serious mistakes have been made, it is important to bring these into the open so others are not harmed as well.
Our firm has been successfully exposing negligence in the health care field on behalf of our clients. We have worked diligently to obtain significant financial awards for our clients to help them recover from the negative impact of medical negligence on their lives.
