Medical Malpractice

In Georgia, medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital, nursing home or other healthcare provider fails to exercise the standard of care and professional skill required for a particular medical situation. Every year thousands of people are injured or even die as a result of the negligence of doctors and other medical professionals.

Examples of common types of medical malpractice
  • Foreign objects like sponges left inside patients during surgery
  • Failure to diagnose/treat infections, leading to disfigurement, amputation and/or death
  • Inadequate nursing care causing decubitus ulcers (bed sores)
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Failure to timely diagnose cardiac problems, such as heart attacks
  • Failure to diagnose stoke
  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Birth trauma causing brain injury or death
