Medical Malpractice

Our lawyers have extensive experience in representing victims of medical malpractice in a variety of complex medical matters involving failure to diagnose or treat life-threatening medical conditions, surgical errors, obstetrics and gynecology, dentistry and wrongful death resulting from improper care and/or treatment.

Medical Malpractice

Georgia, like many states, recently passed tort reform that severely restricts the rights of medical malpractice victims. The new law makes it more difficult to prove medical malpractice and places statutory limits on the amount of certain damages that can be recovered by plaintiffs for injuries caused by the malpractice. Therefore, it is more important than ever to have experienced and knowledgeable attorneys working for you or your loved ones.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in representing victims of medical malpractice in a variety of complex medical matters involving failure to diagnose or treat life-threatening medical conditions, surgical errors, obstetrics and gynecology, dentistry and wrongful death resulting from improper care and/or treatment.

Medical malpractice cases typically require a significant amount of research and careful presentation to be successfully litigated. This is because a favorable outcome requires proof that there was a failure to provide a level of care that is commensurate with accepted standards and that such failure was the cause of the injury.

Our firm is available to handle virtually any type of medical malpractice case, including those that result in major medical injuries or death.

 

Causes of medical malpractice

Medical malpractice can often occur as a result of:

  • Misdiagnosis of cancer
  • Misdiagnosis of cardiac conditions
  • Misdiagnosis in pediatrics
  • Prescribing experimental drugs
  • Performing cosmetic surgery
  • Birth injuries or death resulting from delayed C-section procedure, failure to monitor the fetus, or improper delivery technique
  • Emergency room errors
  • Gastroenterology errors
  • Medical device injuries
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Negligence on the part of a hospital, surgeon, nurse, obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN), or any other doctor or health care worker who fails to follow accepted standards of practice
  • Post-surgical infection
  • Nursing home neglect
  • Lack of informed consent

In addition, it can also result from caregiver negligence, improper hiring, poor training, and managerial incompetence.

Because medical malpractice claims can be complex and difficult to prove, our firm utilizes advanced tools including computer simulations and real life anatomical illustrations to explain complicated medical issues to a jury. We also work closely with qualified medical experts to assist with litigation, both in and out of court.

Our firm has helped medical malpractice accident victims obtain financial compensation for their injuries. If you or someone you love has suffered a serious injury as the result of the negligence of a doctor, hospital, nurse or other medical professional or facility, call our offices today for a consultation.

“Mr. Gebhardt successfully represented me in a hit & run incident and the other driver ended up being found to be intoxicated also. With Mr. Gebhardt’s dogged determination the other parties insurance company settled for entire amount of damages including auto, medical and other damages as a result. In addition Mr. Gebhardt represented me in a case of damages caused by a utility contractor in my home that resulted in flooding the lower level of my house. Again, through Mr. Gebhardt’s persistence and thorough knowledge of the law, the claim was again resolved in a very satisfactory manner. I’d highly recommend this attorney. He truly enjoys what he does and does it with gusto and enthusiasm to ultimately serve his clients.”
