Winning Tough Cases For Those Injured By Medical Malpractice
In the medical profession, there are certain standards for how different conditions and injuries are treated. When a doctor, nurse or other health care professional provides care that falls below those standards and someone is hurt as a result, that is medical malpractice.
People can be injured by substandard medical care in many ways. We offer our assistance to those injured by:
- Failure to diagnose/misdiagnosis — Cancer, heart attacks and strokes are some of the most common health matters to be missed or misdiagnosed.
- Errors in delivery — Delivering a child is a critical time. Failing to monitor the fetus or the mother’s health and other errors can create very serious birth injuries.
- Surgical errors — Wrong-site surgery, leaving a foreign object such as a sponge inside a patient and other surgery-related errors can have a devastating impact.
- Medication errors — Overdose, dispensing the wrong medication and other mistakes regarding drugs can cause serious injuries and fatalities.
- Anesthesia errors — Anesthesiologists have to closely monitor their patients as well as take into account a number of factors to determine how best to anesthetize someone.
- Radiologist errors — Misreading an X-ray can create serious problems when cancer or some other condition is not noticed and treated in a timely fashion.
- Nursing negligence — Patients see nurses more than any other health care professional in a hospital or clinic. When nurses make mistakes, serious injuries or fatalities can occur.
We Know How To Win In Hostile Jurisdictions
Conservative counties in Southern Georgia overall are not generally receptive to medical malpractice cases. We are able to generate positive results for our clients in these venues, including some record verdicts, because we know how to present these tough cases to conservative, south Georgia juries. That knowledge allows us to succeed in an environment that is not open to helping those injured by medical malpractice. We welcome referrals from attorneys who could benefit from our local knowledge.
