FIND THE BEST MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY IN COLUMBUS
Columbus is an excellent place to live, work and raise a family. However, due to the many options available to you, it can be challenging to find the best medical malpractice attorney if you are the victim of medical negligence. There are many knowledgeable attorneys in Columbus, but if you’re a victim of medical malpractice, you should take extra precautions to guarantee you hire an attorney who is familiar with the detailed nature of medical malpractice claims.
Your medical malpractice attorney should be one you trust, and should understand the differences between medical malpractice cases and other personal injury claims in Georgia. Keep in mind:
- Medical malpractice cases have special rules and laws
- You might need extra proof to win a medical malpractice case depending on where the malpractice occurred, such as in an emergency room or in a non-emergency scenario.
- To win a Columbus medical malpractice case, you must prove that the doctor or nurse did not adhere to the applicable standard of care
To tackle these challenges, you or your attorney will need to hire an expert who can offer an opinion regarding if the treating doctor or nurse failed to meet the care required by Georgia law set forth in O.C.G.A. § 51-1-27 which states:
A person professing to practice surgery or the administrating of medicine for compensation must bring to the exercise of his profession a reasonable degree of care and skill. Any injury resulting from a want of such care and skill shall be a tort for which a recovery may be had.
