When examining a potential medical malpractice claim, there are many factors to consider. Just because a surgery did not yield the results you were hoping for or you received a diagnosis for which you’re not prepared, does not mean that medical malpractice took place. If you suspect you have been harmed by a medical mistake, you should contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible following the date the injury occurred. Keep in mind that there are statutes of limitation with medical malpractice cases, and if you miss the deadline, you cannot file suit.
In the state of Georgia, there are four very specific things that must be proven in order for medical malpractice to have occurred:
- A duty must be owed to the injured person.
- The duty must be breached.
- The breach of duty must cause injury.
- There must be damages from the injury.
