FIND THE BEST MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY IN MARIETTA
Marietta is a bustling and beautiful place to live, work and raise a family; however, due to the many options available in the metro Atlanta area, it can be difficult to find the best medical malpractice attorney. There are many capable attorneys in Marietta and the surrounding Atlanta suburbs, but if you’re a victim of medical malpractice, you should take extra precautions to make sure you hire an attorney who is familiar with the detailed nature of medical malpractice claims.
Your medical malpractice attorney should be someone you trust and he or she should understand the differences between medical malpractice cases and other personal injury claims in Georgia. Keep in mind:
- Medical malpractice cases have specific 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 Marietta medical malpractice case, you must prove that the doctor or nurse violated the applicable standard of care.
To tackle these challenges, you should work with an attorney who can hire a medical expert to evaluate your case. The medical expert can advise you and your attorney whether your doctor or nurse violated the standard of 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.
An experienced Marietta medical malpractice attorney can help you find a reliable and credible expert for your case. You can call the medical malpractice attorneys at Williams Elleby for a free consultation at 833-LEGALGA.
