FINDING THE BEST MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY FOR A SAVANNAH CASE
It’s easy to find fun family activities, scenic walks, and great restaurants in Savannah, but finding the best medical malpractice attorney after you’ve been injured in a medical setting can be more difficult. To find the best medical malpractice attorney in Savannah, look for an attorney with medical malpractice experience, knowledge of local law, and relationships with reputable experts.
If you have a medical malpractice case, you need a law firm that has experience handling these types of cases. The law and strategy for medical malpractice cases is different from other personal injury cases. The amount of proof needed in medical malpractice cases is often more than other personal injury cases. The location and circumstances surrounding the malpractice can also affect your claim. For example, it is much more difficult to win a case based on an emergency room medical error than a case involving an error in a non-emergency situation.
Due to the specialized nature of the practice of medicine, medical experts are required to offer their expertise in a medical malpractice case. They are often needed at the beginning stages to determine if the medical provider did something wrong, what they did wrong, and if it caused the injuries. In later stages of a case, a medical expert is required to prove that the doctor or nurse breached the standard of the case set forth in O.C.G.A. § 51-1-27. Not all experts are created equal and a good medical malpractice attorney will know how to find the right expert.
Our medical malpractice attorneys have good relationships with experts and are well versed in the nuances of medical negligence in Georgia and would be happy to explain more to help you understand your case.

THEORIES OF LIABILITY IN SAVANNAH MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASES
Just as each body is unique, each case is unique. Medical mistakes come in different forms and have different impacts, and the injuries often cannot be seen with the naked eye. In fact, many times, people do not immediately know that they were the victim of medical negligence because they don’t experience any negative symptoms until well after the negligent medical care.
Even though the exact issues are rarely the same, we’ve noticed some common themes in our years of handling medical malpractice cases. The following are a few of the most common medical mistakes our law firm sees routinely:
- Delayed or misdiagnosis of cancer, infections, and other serious conditions
- Medication prescription and administration errors
- Obstetrical errors and birth injuries
- Surgical equipment left in the body
- Operating room errors
- Incorrect administration of anesthesia
- Failure to provide timely necessary medical care
Although most Savannah medical professionals try hard to avoid making these common errors, medical errors are inevitable. Unfortunately, the physical and financial harm from these inevitable errors is often significant. Medical malpractice cases help ensure the responsible parties, not the victim, pays for the harm. If you believe that you or a loved one have been the victim of medical malpractice, it is important to have your claim reviewed by a lawyer who is experienced in evaluating and pursuing medical malpractice claims.
