Most people understand that doctors may be held liable for injuries resulting from their errors or omissions. Fewer people realize, however, that medical malpractice laws extend beyond doctors to nurses, lab technicians, dentists, radiologists, and other medical professionals as well. In some cases, a hospital or clinic may be liable for damages in addition to the individual care provider.

Medical malpractice claims involve multiple parties and a dizzying combination of legal and medical knowledge. Consultation with a personal injury attorney in the Peachtree Corners area could clarify the intricacies of your particular claim. If you have been injured due to a negligent health care provider’s errors or omissions, contact a Gwinnett County medical malpractice lawyer today.

Statute of Limitations

Although not all medical malpractice cases involve a lawsuit, it could be prudent to keep the relevant filing deadline in mind. According to the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims in Georgia, an individual who sustained an injury due to a medical error has two years to file a claim. Failure to file the lawsuit within the two-year period could lead to the dismissal of the case and the loss of any possible compensation.

A medical malpractice case can be a long process. It may take time to investigate an incident, gather medical records, and assess damages. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer in Peachtree Corners could work to build a case and negotiate on an injured party’s behalf.

Besides the statute of limitations, timely pursuit of a medical malpractice claim can have practical benefits. An earlier start on a claim may make it easier to locate witnesses and evidence, as opposed to trying to locate information a year or more after the incident occurred.

Proving Malpractice

To support a medical malpractice claim, an individual may need to demonstrate that the health care provider deviated from the standard of care, thereby causing the injury. The standard of care is the level of care which a reasonably prudent medical professional in the particular specialty would have provided under the circumstances.

Errors relating to diagnoses, administration of medication, surgery, and lab testing are common in medical malpractice cases, so medical records are typically vital to the success of a claim. A medical malpractice attorney in Peachtree Corners could obtain the relevant records and analyze them for evidence of negligence.

Expert opinions are also major aspects of a medical malpractice claim. In order to assess the standards of care for a particular health problem, expert testimony from medical professionals may be necessary. In a case involving future care needs, expert testimony may also be helpful in estimating the cost of future care and ultimately calculating damages.
