Atlanta Medical Malpractice Cases

We Handle All Types of Atlanta Medical Malpractice Cases Near You

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

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


Misdiagnosis is one of the most common types of malpractice.

It occurs when a doctor or medical professional fails to diagnose or misdiagnose a patient’s 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 common 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 medical malpractice statute limitations in Georgia: 

If you fail to file your claim by the deadline, you will not be able to recover any compensation for your damages. Therefore, you should speak to a local attorney as soon as possible for help with your claim. Malone Law can help you understand the time limits that apply in your case.


What are the Damages Available for Victims of Medical Malpractice in Atlanta?

Medical malpractice can result in extensive damages and financial losses to affected patients. Georgia law allows victims to recover compensation for these losses in a personal injury claim.

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 as a result of your injury or condition. Non-economic damages represent the personal, non-financial losses you’ve incurred.

You may be entitled to the following 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 
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Loss of consortium

An experienced medical malpractice 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 compensation to demand from the insurance company and other liable parties.
