Decatur Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice happens when healthcare providers like doctors, nurses, or hospitals, don't meet the expected standards of care while treating patients. In Georgia, following these standards is required by law (O.C.G.A. § 51-1-27). These standards are usually well-defined in medical and nursing education, found in widely-accepted textbooks, professional guidelines, hospital policies, peer-reviewed literature, and some are accessible through simple internet searches. These standards are taught to ensure excellent patient care and to avoid complications that could harm patients. If a healthcare provider deviates from these standards, which is called a "breach" or "violation" of the standard of care, and it leads to injury, it's considered “medical malpractice” and “medical negligence”.

Common Examples Of Medical Malpractice

Our Decatur medical malpractice attorney is an expert in the field and will be able to assist you and your family with any kind of medical malpractice case.

Common instances of medical malpractice include:

  • Anesthesia Errors: Anesthesiologists and other healthcare providers have the responsibility of making sure patients can breathe properly during and after surgeries and medical procedures. If anesthesia isn't administered safely, if patients aren't monitored adequately, if breathing problems are ignored, if there's no proper anesthesia plan, or if airway issues aren't dealt with promptly, it can result in serious brain injuries or even death. Families affected by such situations should look into possible wrongdoing.
  • Birth Injuries: Medical malpractice commonly happens during childbirth, particularly when using medications like "Pitocin" or "Oxytocin" to speed up labor. If these medications are given incorrectly or not monitored well, it can cause serious harm, like reduced blood flow to the baby, which may lead to permanent brain damage or death. In such situations, it's crucial to seek help right away from a skilled medical malpractice lawyer who specializes in birth injury cases.
  • Misdiagnosis, Missed Diagnosis, or Delayed Diagnosis:Medical malpractice can happen when healthcare providers don't quickly diagnose and treat urgent medical problems. Patients showing typical symptoms of serious issues like heart attacks, strokes, cancer, or infections might be sent home without proper care if the signs aren't recognized. Getting diagnosed and treated promptly is really important to avoid long-term harm or even death, so people affected by this should reach out to experienced medical malpractice lawyers for advice.
  • Medication Errors: Nurses must follow the "5 Rights" when giving medication, making sure it's the right medication, for the right patient, at the right dose, through the right route, and at the right time. Mistakes like giving the wrong medication, too much of it, or using the wrong method can be really harmful. If someone is harmed by such errors, they should talk to experienced medical malpractice lawyers to look into what happened.
  • Surgical Mistakes: Surgical mistakes like operating on the wrong body part, leaving tools inside patients, doing surgeries that aren't needed, or harming important organs can change lives or even lead to death. Surgeons need to think about possible problems and steer clear of mistakes they could have avoided to keep patients safe.
