Atlanta Medical Malpractice Cases

We Handle All Types of Medical Malpractice Cases Near You

Medical malpractice can take many forms, but not every mistake or bad outcome qualifies as malpractice. In these cases, a doctor or medical provider must deviate from the standard of care established by the medical community.

Examples of mistakes and errors that could lead to an Atlanta malpractice claim include:


Misdiagnosis is one of the most common forms of malpractice.

It occurs when a doctor fails to diagnose or misdiagnose an injury or illness.

Generally, misdiagnosis results in a worsening of the condition, which could have been treated earlier if diagnosed properly.

Delayed diagnosis is another form of malpractice.

Statute of Limitations

What are the Time Limits in
Medical Malpractice Cases?

Georgia has strict time limits for medical malpractice claims. These deadlines can be highly technical. In general, you must file your case within two years of the date of the malpractice, or else you will be barred from bringing your case.

There are two major exceptions to the statute limitations in Georgia: 

If you fail to file by the deadline, you will not be able to recover money in court. Therefore, you should speak to an Atlanta attorney as soon as possible for help. Malone Law Medical Malpractice and Severe Injury Lawyers can help you understand the time limits that apply in your case.


What are the Damages Available for Victims of Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice can result in extensive harm to affected patients. Georgia law allows you to recover money for these losses.

Typically, you will be entitled to two forms of damages after proving malpractice: economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages represent the financial losses you’ve suffered. Non-economic damages represent the personal, non-financial losses you’ve incurred.

You may be entitled to the following in the form of damages if you’ve been the victim of malpractice: 

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation 
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Scarring and disfigurement 
  • Costs to make changes to your home
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Loss of consortium

An experienced lawyer can help you identify what damages are available in your case. They can also help you calculate the value of your losses so you know exactly what to demand from the insurance company and other liable parties.
