How to Prove Medical Malpractice
For any medical malpractice lawsuit to win, your Georgia medical malpractice attorney will need to be able to show that your healthcare provider breached their duty of care.
Healthcare professionals are held to a higher standard, and when they make mistakes that their peers would not have made, they can be held accountable for medical malpractice.
Types of Medical Malpractice
Medical errors happen all the time. But many healthcare providers are able to mask their mistakes. They won’t tell patients a mistake was made, or they explain away the effects of the mistake as a side effect or risk of the treatment you underwent.
Whether your provider is honest with you or not, here are some types of medical malpractice that occur more frequently than others so that you can watch for them. Some of the more common types of medical errors seen in medical malpractice lawsuits include:
- Failure to diagnose
- Delayed diagnosis
- Failure to treat
- Improper treatment
- Failure to provide follow-up care
- Anesthesia errors
- Birth injuries
- Surgical errors
- Medical product liability
- Pharmaceutical and other medication errors
These are only a few of the different types of medical malpractice that we see often in court. If you have been a victim of any of the previously mentioned medical errors, or another medical mistake not listed above, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim.
We’ll likely start out by filing a claim with the malpractice insurer. If the insurer is unwilling or unable to compensate you fairly, we’ll be prepared to bring your case to trial. It’s important that your Georgia medical malpractice attorney never lets you settle for less than you deserve.
