What is medical malpractice?
Georgia law states that “[a] person professing to practice surgery or the administering of medicine for compensation must bring to the exercise of his profession a reasonable degree of care and skill.” O.C.G.A. Section 51-1-27. Medical malpractice is generally defined as the failure to exercise adequately, the skill, knowledge and care ordinarily possessed and exercised by other members of the profession acting under similar conditions and circumstances. This doesn’t mean that every time something bad happens in a patient’s care that there is malpractice. Rather, the liability occurs where a professional failed to provide services in a manner that a reasonable professional would have done in similar circumstances.
How do I know if I have a medical malpractice claim?
Because of the complexity of medical malpractice cases, it takes an expert’s opinion to assess malpractice: to determine what the standard of care was and if the standard of care was violated. Keep in mind that there are specific statutes of limitation within the state of Georgia with which malpractice cases must be completed or filed by. Failure to comply with these time limits will result in a loss of the right to file a claim, thus it is important to contact a skilled attorney as soon as possible.
