When a doctor, nurse, pharmacist or other medical professional – even someone who only works in the office – makes a mistake that impacts surgery, medical procedure, diagnosis or prescription, resulting in some detriment to your health, it’s considered medical malpractice. In Georgia, when you are the victim of medical malpractice, you may be able to recover damages in the amount of expenses you incurred through a lawsuit and with the assistance of a malpractice lawyer.

While no surgical error is common, some do occur more frequently than others. Some of those surgical errors include: 
  • Wrong-site surgery, in which surgeons operate on the wrong location. This is often the result of misreading charts or an inaccurate diagnosis; 
  • Procedural errors that occur during surgery, which can include mistakes with anesthesia or the use of equipment that is not properly sterilized; and 
  • Post-operative errors, which take place after the procedure and can include failure to monitor a patient and respond to complications properly or the improper administration of post-surgery medication. 
If you’ve been the victim of one of the many Atlanta accidents in medical care, contact an attorney who has handled cases like yours before. You deserve to be treated with compassion, professionalism and respect.
