Medical negligence occurs when a healthcare provider or facility fails to adhere to the recognized standard of care in their medical field, such failure then resulting in injury or death.
Examples of medical negligence include surgical mistakes, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, birth injuries, and more. This practice area requires a deep understanding of medicine and the law. Only qualified medical malpractice attorneys will understand the various medical standards while simultaneously recognizing and overcoming the many legal barriers meant to prevent recoveries for injured parties.

“Suing doctors is one of the most difficult legal challenges in Georgia. My wife is a doctor, and I have great admiration for the work performed by doctors and nurses on a daily basis. However, even good medical providers can make mistakes that lead to major consequences. When those mistakes happen, the hospital, insurance companies, and their teams of lawyers will always support the medical provider and use the shields provided by rigorous laws in this state. We aim to level the playing field by making sure every client has access to justice. This benefits the client, but it also strengthens the medical profession by letting providers know that we can hold them accountable despite the many protections afforded to them.” – Michael Mayo
