Medical Malpractice in Georgia Explained

Georgia law requires every adult to act with reasonable care toward others so as not to cause unnecessary harm. Doctors, nurses, and other workers are no exception. These individuals are also expected to perform their duties with skill and appropriate caution.

Malpractice occurs when a medical provider commits an avoidable error that injures you or a loved one. Avoidable errors are mistakes and omissions a reasonably careful provider faced with the same situation would not have committed. Common examples include:

  • Failing to diagnose a condition promptly and accurately
  • Prescribing or dispensing the incorrect medication or dosage
  • Operating on an incorrect body part or organ
  • Leaving surgical tools or foreign objects in an incision or wound
  • Not adequately monitoring a patient’s vital signs during a procedure

When these and similar lapses in judgment lead to injuries, negative medical outcomes, or other adverse effects, Seay/Felton can offer crucial assistance.

Proving malpractice can be difficult and may require the use of medical and other experts. Our firm has the resources to build a solid claim for compensation and ensure that your or your loved one’s needs are adequately addressed.

Time Limits to File for Medical Malpractice in Georgia

You only have a limited amount of time to file for compensation after being injured by your healthcare provider.

This period is known as the statute of limitations, and in Georgia, it’s only two years. Failing to file a medical malpractice claim within this two-year window can mean losing any opportunity to recover compensation for your injuries.

At Seay/Felton, we understand that being hurt by a careless doctor or nurse can be an unnerving and confusing experience. With over 50 years of combined legal experience helping injured Georgians like yourself, we can assure you that your claim is in good hands.

We don’t charge any fees if we don’t win your case, so you have nothing to lose by contacting us for a case review.

How Long Does It Take to Settle a Georgia Malpractice Case?

Unfortunately, there’s no way to know exactly how long your case will take to reach a settlement or verdict. Many factors combine to determine how long a case takes to resolve, some of which you can’t control. Some cases resolve within weeks, while others can take months or longer.

One thing you can control is the law firm you hire to represent you. Choosing a firm like Seay/Felton that’s successfully handled numerous claims can mean the difference between being compensated quickly and fairly and receiving a settlement that’s too low to address your injuries, lost wages, and other losses.

Proven Success: Our Results Speak For Themselves

One feature of Georgia medical malpractice cases is that your claim must be accompanied by an expert witness’s affidavit describing how the care you received fell below acceptable professional standards. Seay/Felton has connections with reputable expert witnesses who can meet this vital requirement.
