Lawrenceville Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Serving Clients In Gwinnett County, DeKalb County And Fulton County, Georgia

Medical professionals are held to high standards, as they should be. We trust our nurses, doctors and surgeons to make the right diagnosis, treat medical conditions using effective procedures and follow through with medications and advice for our long-term health. We are fortunate that the large majority of medical professionals take their responsibilities seriously and do everything they can to meet the expected level of care.

Unfortunately, some doctors fail to meet the standards of their profession. When a mistake or oversight leads to a misdiagnosis, ineffective treatment or a surgical error, it can have a catastrophic effect on the patient and family members. Our civil lawsuit process to recover money damages is the only way patients have of holding medical professionals accountable for the injuries and harm caused by their negligence.

What Does It Take To Win A Medical Malpractice Lawsuit In Georgia

Medical negligence cases are difficult to win because Georgia laws* hold plaintiffs to a high standard of proof. In order to pursue a claim, the injured party must obtain an affidavit from another practicing doctor, which states that the defendant doctor failed to meet the usual standard of medical care for the geographic area. In addition to the affidavit, the plaintiff must be able to demonstrate that physical injury or neglect of symptoms resulted in financial damages.
