Medical malpractice could happen to you or someone you love

If you think that your family will never be touched by the horrors of medical malpractice, we urge you to think again and to be cautious. Most victims of medical malpractice, especially those suffering serious or catastrophic injuries, thought the same thing when they went to a medical facility for help.

In truth, it is not always possible to identify health care providers that might be negligent. In this modern world, many factors can turn a minor medical procedure into a nightmare of preventable health care injuries. Doctors, nurses and surgeons in the 21st century are busy managing multiple patients, making rounds, reviewing test results and performing a multitude of other tasks. Such chaos comes with the risk of making errors that lead to severe harm. Common mistakes that might occur because of negligence on a medical provider's part include:

  • Operating on the wrong part of the body
  • Causing infections through insufficient sanitary procedures
  • Serious medication errors
  • Operating on the wrong patient
  • Leaving foreign objects in the body

Most medical malpractice victims never believed that the professionals they trusted would be careless enough to cause them harm. As injury attorneys serving Georgia victims, we believe that this is a dangerous mindset. While you should certainly be able to trust your health care providers, believing that they are immune to mistakes is dangerous.

To help combat medical malpractice, we always urge patients to question a health care provider's actions. Ask about any surgical procedures, treatment plans and medications he or she recommends. This serves two important purposes: It keeps you well informed about your health care and it helps remind doctors, nurses and surgeons of their duty to cause no harm.
