Atlanta Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Are You Considering A Medical Malpractice Suit?
Trust. It’s the fundamental element in any doctor-patient relationship. Everyday, right here in Atlanta, thousands of patients go through medical procedures to improve their lives in one way or another. From routine checkups, diagnosis and medical prescriptions, to major surgery that may save a person’s life. Big and small, they are all important to the person that matters most – the patient. Undergoing a medical procedure is usually already a frightening event for the patient…and unfortunately, when things are not done correctly, the after-effects can be even more frightening.
When things don’t turn out as planned, there can be pain, suffering and even death that occurs. Doctors, nurses, and others medical professionals do their best, but sometimes mistakes creep in, and this is when damage to the patient often happens. When it does, you need to reach out to the Atlanta medical malpractice lawyers of Monge & Associates.
What To Know About Medical Malpractice
Legally speaking, medical malpractice happens when a medical professional is irresponsible in their approach to a patient and their particular medical situation. The term is relatively narrow in its definition, but it’s very broad in application. It could include:
- Hospital negligence – This includes medical errors that may happen inside of a medical facility for a variety of reasons.
- Surgical errors – Removing the wrong the limb or performing the wrong operation. You’ve heard the horror stories, but these events do happen in real life.
- Medication – This could involve prescribing the wrong medication, or the right medication in the wrong amounts. Also, may include prescribing medications that are known to have adverse reactions with an existing patient condition.
- Birth injuries – A child’s birth is precious, but sometime moments of joy can change in an instant. Fetal distress and failure to monitor the delivery process adequately can both lead to medical malpractice claims. Also, life-long birth defects like Erb’s Palsy can occur in just a moment’s notice through incorrect estimates on the weight of the baby.
