MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY IN SAVANNAH, GEORGIA
Gene Brooks is your medical malpractice attorney in Savannah that can help you seek what you deserve. Along with debilitating injuries, victims of medical malpractice can face years, or even a lifetime, of corrective surgeries, medical bills, and the inability to work. Some errors can even be fatal.
Some common forms of medical malpractice include:
Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a serious illness or disease
Ordering the wrong test
Failing to provide treatment on time
Failure to provide standard follow up care
Prescribing the wrong medication or dosage
Misinterpretation of lab results
Failing to monitor a patient
Medical device errors
If you suspect something isn’t right, it’s very important that you start documenting your experiences immediately. Make detailed notes of:
The symptoms you experience
The dates they occur
The names of your doctors
Procedures or surgeries and the outcomes
You must be able to show all of the following elements in a medical malpractice claim:
You had a doctor-patient relationship with the doctor or hospital facility you plan to sue
Your doctor’s professional treatment fell below the acceptable standard.
You will need an expert to testify that your doctor’s misconduct caused your injury.
You suffered damages such as medical bills, physical and mental pain and suffering, time off from work, or inability to work at all as a result of your injuries.
There are limits on how long you have to file a lawsuit and claim damages. Unfortunately, the law does not consider your recovery time as an exception to these time limits. The clock on the statute of limitations begins ticking the day you are injured.
