Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Case?

Patients often come to the mistaken conclusion that if you are hurt by a doctor then you have an automatic malpractice claim. You not only have to prove that a medical practitioner made a mistake but that it directly led to you being harmed. It can be a very complex process and you will need the help of a Peachtree City GA Medical Malpractice Attorney.

Why Do I Need The Services Of A Peachtree City GA Medical Malpractice Attorney?
There are a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the fact the doctor will have his own legal experts to defend him. However, the main reasons to hire a Peachtree City GA Medical Malpractice Attorney are to help you prove medical negligence and injury.

  • To prove Medical Negligence you will have to show evidence that your doctor's care was not up to the Standard of Care in your area.
  • To prove injury is even trickier. You can't just say that the doctor didn't make you better. You have to prove causation. This means that the doctor's mistake directly led to your illness or injury getting worse. It usually takes a long time to prove and you will need at least one expert witness to verify the link between mistake and harm.

What is Standard of Care?

Essentially, it means that your doctor needs to treat you in the same way as any other doctor would treat your specific case in your area. Standards of care can vary depending on the patient's age, area and injury. So a middle aged IT director in Georgia could expect a different standard of care than a 20 year old policeman in California. For the best outcome contact a Peachtree City GA Medical Malpractice Attorney to help you to navigate the legalities of your situation and let you know if you have a viable case or not.
