Medical malpractice is a legal term used to describe injuries or harm caused by medical professionals through their actions or neglect. Such cases cover a wide range, from misdiagnosing an illness to medication errors. If you suspect negligence by a healthcare provider, contact our law firm as soon as possible to learn more about your legal rights.
Who investigates medical malpractice cases in Georgia?
There's no official agency that investigates every medical malpractice allegation in Georgia. In most cases, it's up to the people who claim they were harmed by a surgeon, doctor or another medical professional to take legal action against them. We can help you every step of the way - and we have the case results to prove it.
What should I do if the hospital denies any wrongdoing?
Don't try to challenge the hospital directly. Anything you say or write to them could be used as evidence against you. Contact George S. Johnson. He knows how to negotiate with hospitals and take the necessary legal action if they refuse to cooperate with our investigation.
Should I accept any money for my injury?
If you accept a settlement offer from a hospital, insurance company or anyone else involved with your case, you could forfeit your right to future compensation for your injury. As a result, if you need additional medical care months or years from now, you might have to pay out of your own pocket. That's why it's always important to carefully consider any offer before you agree to accept it. What might seem like a lot of money might not even come close to covering the true cost of your injury.
Should I talk to investigators about hospital injury?
No. Politely decline to answer their questions and direct them to contact our law firm for all future inquiries. If you're not yet represented by us, call us immediately before answering any questions from the investigators. Anything you say to an insurance investigator or anyone else looking into your claim could be used as evidence to deny or reduce your claim. Even seemingly innocent questions could come from an investigator with a hidden agenda. That's why we strongly recommend you allow us to answer all your questions on your behalf.
Should I sue the hospital for medical malpractice?
Perhaps. Sometimes, filing a medical malpractice lawsuit against the hospital or whoever caused your injury is the best way to resolve your case. Many legal options exist. And George S. Johnson would be more than happy to discuss all of them with you.
How much is my medical malpractice case worth?
There's no set dollar amount for how much each case is worth. Some cases are worth a few hundred or a few thousand dollars. Other cases might be worth millions of dollars. We can help you understand the scope of your case. And best of all, you don't have to worry about whether you can afford to hire George S. Johnson to represent you. That's because you only have to pay him if you win. It's that simple. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Contact George today.
