Accountability For Hospitals, Doctors, and Nurses

In a 2018 study by Johns Hopkins University, medical errors emerged as the third leading cause of death in the United States, trailing only heart disease and cancer. It's unsettling to consider that esteemed healthcare institutions and highly qualified doctors could be implicated in such a significant number of preventable medical errors. These errors can lead to grave outcomes, from fatalities to life-altering injuries such as permanent brain damage, complete paralysis, and limb amputations. In such cases, it becomes crucial to uncover the root cause, understand why it occurred, and determine if it could have been avoided.

As seasoned legal professionals with decades of experience specializing in complex personal injury and medical malpractice cases, we possess a profound comprehension of the standards for safe and high-quality medical care, as well as the factors contributing to these medical errors. We are adept at confronting large hospital systems and healthcare providers who shirk responsibility for obvious and preventable medical errors.

Our team collaborates closely with highly qualified practicing physicians across the nation, experts in their respective fields, who are committed to advocating for patients and educating juries about the standards of safe and high-quality medical care.

While embarking on a medical malpractice case against a major healthcare system or a respected physician may seem daunting, we offer the knowledge, expertise, and skill needed to navigate this complex journey. If you require assistance, do not hesitate to reach out to The Moses Firm, where our Lawrenceville medical malpractice attorneys provide complimentary consultations.

We thoroughly evaluate every angle of your case, without any charge to you, to discover its potential.

Types of Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice arises when healthcare providers, such as doctors, nurses, or hospitals, fail to uphold established "standards of care," deviating from the reasonable expectations of their profession when treating patients. In Georgia, adherence to these standards is legally mandated (O.C.G.A. § 51-1-27). These standards are typically well-defined within medical and nursing education, documented in widely-accepted textbooks, professional guidelines, hospital policies, peer-reviewed literature, and readily accessible through basic internet searches. Their purpose is to ensure optimal patient care and prevent avoidable complications that may harm patients. Departing from these standards, known as a "breach" or "violation" of the standard of care, resulting in injury, constitutes medical malpractice or negligence.

Common Examples Of Medical Malpractice Include:

  • Anesthesia Errors: Anesthesiologists and related healthcare professionals are tasked with ensuring patients can breathe safely during and after surgeries and medical procedures. Failure to administer anesthesia safely, inadequate patient monitoring, disregarding breathing difficulties, lacking a safe anesthesia plan, or failing to promptly address airway issues can lead to severe brain injuries or death. Families affected by such incidents should explore potential misconduct.
  • Birth Injuries: Medical malpractice often occurs during labor and delivery, especially when inducing labor using medications like "Pitocin" or "Oxytocin" to expedite delivery. Incorrect administration or insufficient monitoring of these medications can result in serious harm, such as reduced blood flow to the baby, leading to permanent brain damage or death. In such cases, seeking immediate assistance from an experienced medical malpractice lawyer specializing in birth injury cases is essential.
  • Misdiagnosis, a Missed Diagnosis, or a Delayed Diagnosis:Medical malpractice may stem from failing to promptly diagnose and treat urgent medical conditions. Patients presenting with common symptoms of serious conditions, such as heart attacks, strokes, cancers, or infections, may be discharged without treatment if healthcare providers fail to recognize the signs. Timely diagnosis and treatment are crucial to prevent permanent harm or death, prompting affected individuals to seek counsel from experienced medical malpractice lawyers.
  • Medication Errors: Nurses are required to adhere to the "5 Rights" of medication administration, ensuring the correct medication, patient, dose, route, and time. Medication errors, such as administering the wrong medication, excessive doses, or improper routes, can cause significant harm. Victims of such errors should consult with seasoned medical malpractice lawyers for a comprehensive investigation.
  • Surgical Mistakes: Surgical errors, including operating on the wrong body part, leaving surgical tools inside patients, performing unnecessary surgeries, or damaging vital organs, can have life-altering or fatal consequences. Surgeons must anticipate potential complications and avoid preventable mistakes to protect patient well-being.

Do I Have A Medical Malpractice Case?

Assessing the potential success of a medical malpractice case requires a thorough examination of both legal and practical elements, which vary depending on the circumstances. Consulting with a Marietta medical malpractice attorney is essential for evaluating the viability of your case.

To determine the viability of a medical malpractice claim, it's crucial to gather and scrutinize relevant medical records and potentially enlist expert medical professionals to assess the situation and identify any errors. The esteemed legal team at The Moses Firm offers complimentary consultations to evaluate your case, even covering the expenses of expert reviews if needed.

Legally, prevailing in a Georgia medical malpractice case requires proving several key elements: the existence of a duty (standard of care), its breach by the healthcare provider, the causal link between the breach and injuries, and the resulting damages suffered by the patient.

DUTY: Establishing the duty involves demonstrating that the healthcare provider had a responsibility to adhere to an appropriate standard of care for the circumstances, often clarified by expert witnesses within the medical field.

BREACH OF DUTY: A breach of duty occurs when the actions of the healthcare provider deviate from what a reasonable provider would do under similar circumstances. However, establishing a breach is insufficient; causation must also be proven, indicating that the breach directly caused the patient's injury.

CAUSATION: In a medical malpractice case, causation is demonstrated by a preponderance of evidence, indicating it's more likely than not that the negligence caused the injury. Moreover, damages, covering both economic and non-economic losses, must be illustrated, typically involving severe or life-altering injuries.

DAMAGES: To establish a medical malpractice case, the plaintiff must have experienced a tangible injury. Usually, these cases entail severe or life-altering consequences such as death, brain damage, paralysis, or limb amputations. In Georgia, damages are categorized into two main types: economic and non-economic. Economic damages encompass medical costs, lost wages (both current and future), and funeral expenses. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, provide compensation for pain and suffering, enduring effects of injuries, disfigurement, the permanence of the injury, and/or loss of life.

Given the complexity of medical malpractice claims, seeking guidance from experienced attorneys is vital. They consider various factors, such as the strength of the case, the severity of the error, the extent of the injury, and its impact on the patient's life, to determine the most appropriate course of action.

The Cover Up is Real

When serious medical errors occur, it's imperative that doctors and hospitals uphold their ethical duty by promptly, honestly, and fully disclosing the error to the patient and/or their family, often in accordance with hospital policies. Surprisingly, we've encountered numerous cases of medical malpractice where hospitals and doctors engage in deceptive practices. These may include altering medical records, omitting crucial information, fabricating non-existent medical conditions to deflect blame, and unfairly attributing the patient's condition to their own health status. Furthermore, they may keep undisclosed notes and communications in emails, text messages, and hospital apps, hire aggressive defense attorneys to prolong litigation, and enlist highly-credentialed experts to present false narratives to deny accountability.

Unfortunately, such tactics are pervasive among large hospital systems, with admissions of fault and fair settlements being exceptionally rare following a known medical malpractice event. If you or a family member has been a victim of medical malpractice, it's crucial to seek representation from an experienced and assertive medical malpractice attorney. By doing so, you not only advocate for your loved one but also contribute to improving healthcare safety in your community.

Given the challenges, dedication, and risks associated with pursuing a medical malpractice case, it's crucial that your situation undergoes a thorough assessment by seasoned medical malpractice lawyers, both from a legal and practical standpoint. These attorneys consider various factors, including the case's strength, the severity of the medical error, the extent of injury and damages, the potential venue for the case, the patient's medical history and pre-injury health status, as well as the significance and impact of the resulting pain and suffering, among other pertinent considerations.

If you're facing a medical malpractice concern in Lawrenceville, it's advisable to seek the counsel of a trusted, experienced, and reputable Lawrenceville medical malpractice lawyer who is well-versed in the nuances of Georgia law and possesses the necessary contacts to provide effective assistance. Many medical malpractice victims mistakenly opt for out-of-state representation, unaware that such lawyers may lack familiarity with Georgia's legal intricacies and lack the local connections needed to achieve the best possible outcome for their case. The esteemed team of Lawrenceville medical malpractice attorneys at The Moses Firm offers complimentary evaluations of the legal and practical aspects of your case to determine its viability.

If you have a valid case that we agree to take on, The Moses Firm will provide representation at no cost to you. We'll cover all case expenses, ensuring there's no financial risk on your part. You'll only be responsible for attorneys' fees and litigation expenses if we secure compensation for you.
