What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice or medical negligence occurs when a health care provider delivers treatment that falls below the acceptable standard of care within the medical community. There are several key elements that must be established to prove an instance of medical malpractice, including:
- Existence of a doctor-patient relationship
- Provision of medical care, which could include treatment, failure to treat, or decisions, that fall below the accepted medical standard of care
- Medical professional’s negligence caused the patient harm
- Patient suffered damages as a result
At Montlick & Associates we have assisted patients injured due to the action or inaction of their healthcare providers for over 38 years. We understand that these lawsuits are some of the most complex and challenging, in part due to the severity of the injuries, the need for expert witnesses, and the Georgia laws and cases that apply to medical malpractice claims.
Common Errors Made by Atlanta Doctors and Hospitals
Delayed Diagnosis or Misdiagnosis
Many medical malpractice cases are based on delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis. When a doctor incorrectly diagnoses—or fails to promptly diagnose—a patient, the patient can miss out on needed treatment and, in turn, suffer serious harm or tragic death. Proving a case of medical malpractice based on delayed or misdiagnosis rests in part on proving the doctor or other medical professional did not follow the diagnostic protocol observed in the industry and that another physician under the same circumstances would not have made the diagnostic error.
Medication errors injure millions annually and can occur in several ways. Most often, these errors revolve around dosage. The doctor who initially prescribes the medication, the nurse administering it, or even the pharmacist who fills the prescription can make dosage mistakes. Additionally, manufacturers of defective drugs can be held responsible for injuries or ailments caused by their products.
Mistakes made in the operating room can have catastrophic results. Surgical errors include operating on the wrong body part, leaving instruments inside the body, negligent administration of post-op care, and more.
