Atlanta Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers have a duty to exercise a certain degree of care and skill when caring for patients. When they fail to do so, serious injuries can occur to patients. In such situations, the patient may be able to recover compensation for their injuries.
Not every injury that occurs in a medical setting is medical malpractice. Sometimes even if a doctor does her very best, a patient can still have a bad outcome. That is not a case of medical malpractice. Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional fails to practice within the standard of care and the patient is injured because the care fell below the standard of care.
There are many types of medical malpractice. Surgical errors can occur during various types of surgeries, whether it involves a surgeon nicking a vital organ or an anesthesia provider giving a patient too much anesthesia. When families bring a baby into this world, it is usually a joyous occasion. However sometimes, negligence by doctors, nurses or others can lead to a tragic birth injury or injury to the mother. Many patients suffer from conditions for years because their providers failed to correctly diagnose their condition or misdiagnosed their condition.
