      Augusta Medical Malpractice Lawyers

      The term medical malpractice can mean a variety of things. Almost every medical malpractice case involves the negligence of a medical care professional. The injuries sustained in these cases can be life-altering.

      Our Augusta medical malpractice lawyers are here to maximize your case results. You are likely feeling frustrated and possibly scared about the future. Our lawyers will be able to guide you through your case every step of the way and get you the results that you are hoping for. Please give us a call today to set up a free, initial consultation.

      When you are undergoing medical care, doctors, nurses, and medical institutions like a hospital or clinic must do everything they can to protect your health. Medical negligence on the part of a physician or nursing specialist can threaten your health in certain situations.

      You are owed a standard of care from your doctor or hospital. If that obligation is not met, you may be entitled to seek compensation for any injuries you have suffered as a result. Doctors or a physician that does not diagnose you appropriately or a surgeon that commits a surgical error can cause serious damage to you or a loved one.

      Medical malpractice law is a very complex area of the legal system. In order to help people navigate it, they need an attorney who has extensive knowledge of all the laws related to medical claims and cases. Knowing what makes up a claim, how much evidence should be provided for one to file a case in court, what damages are reasonable should be settled by an agreement instead of going through litigation.

      Our medical malpractice law firm in Augusta can help you with your medical malpractice claim and can take the right steps to ensure you get the compensation and justice you deserve. Contact us today to get the legal help you need to move forward with your life.

      Types of Medical Malpractice Cases

      There are four main areas that medical malpractice encompasses. They include:

      • Misdiagnosis
      • Surgical Errors
      • Pharmaceutical Mistakes
      • Pregnancy, Labor/Delivery, and Postpartum Malpractice

      If you were a victim of misdiagnosis, you likely already know that something like this can result in a nearly fatal accident. We commonly see heart attacks, lumps in the body, infections, and embolisms get misdiagnosed, which can all be very serious.

      The unfortunate truth is that when you are injured during surgery, it is typically because someone on the surgery team made an error. These errors can range from serious to catastrophic. There have been incidences of wrong operations performed, wrong body parts performed on, and anesthesia errors; all of these are extremely serious mistakes.

      We see errors with pharmacies quite often, as well. You are likely trusting your pharmacist or drug manufacturer to give you the right medication and the right dosage. Sometimes they mix up what they are supposed to give you. Sometimes your doctor sends over the wrong prescription. Sometimes there is a medication side effect that you were not educated about. All of these creates liability issues for those involved. You can get seriously harmed from these mistakes.

      Lastly, the United States of America tragically has the highest maternal mortality rate in the developed world as of 2019. This is due to a number of reasons. Malpractice happens in the prenatal stage, labor and delivery, and the post-partum stage. This can affect both the mother and baby. To win these kinds of cases, your lawyer would be responsible for proving the negligence of the medical professional.

      Georgia Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations

      With any personal injury case that we deal with, there is always going to be a given amount of time in which you are permitted to bring your case to civil court. Medical malpractice is no different. In Georgia, you are allowed two years from the date of your incident. This statute does vary from regular personal injury cases because medical malpractice is complicated.

      If you suffered something like the wrong dose of medication, you may not discover that for some time. For cases like that, which require a certain amount of discovery, your two year statute of limitations begins on the date that you discover (or should have discovered) that there was medical malpractice.

      While two years may seem like a while, in the legal world that time can go by so fast. A lot of time gets eaten up trying to get these insurance companies to cooperate. The sooner you can get to a lawyer to help you build your case, the better off you will be with a greater chance of a successful outcome.
