How Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Georgia Can Help

 

It is my understanding that many of the same doctors commit malpractice over and over again. If they have truly committed malpractice, you should bring attention to said fact — it is a very good way to stop it from happening to someone else. Common types of malpractice handled by medical malpractice lawyers in Georgia include:

 

Misdiagnosis

Misdiagnosis is a common form of medical malpractice that can lead to liability. This type of malpractice occurs when a doctor examines a patient but diagnoses the wrong illness, whether that be no illness at all or a condition that the patient does not have. As a result, the patient is prevented from receiving the proper treatment, or they receive treatment for the wrong condition, leading to further illness or injury.

Birth Injuries

When an OBGYN or other medical professional makes a preventable childbirth-related medical mistake, birth injuries can occur. Birth injury malpractice can occur in many forms, including spinal cord injuries, shoulder dystocia, cerebral palsy, and cephalohematoma. Birth injuries can arise from malpractice during childbirth or from negligent prenatal care.

 

Surgical Errors

Surgical errors are another common type of medical malpractice that can have significant effects on the patient’s life. Surgical errors that can constitute malpractice include performing unnecessary surgery, performing the incorrect procedure, administering the wrong amount of anesthesia, or damaging tissues, organs, or nerves during surgery.

 

Failure to Treat

Failure to treat is a type of malpractice that occurs when a doctor provides an accurate diagnosis, yet fails to treat it according to the acceptable standard of care for that diagnosis. When a medical provider discharges a patient too soon or fails to provide adequate follow-up care, the patient’s condition can worsen, causing injury.

 

Prescription Drug Errors

Another common type of medical malpractice, prescription drug errors occur when a provider prescribes the wrong medication, the wrong dosage, or instructs an incorrect administration of a drug. This type of malpractice can also occur when a doctor prescribes multiple drugs that can cause harm to the patient when interacting with each other.
