Injuries Due To Substandard Care, Treatment, Or Surgery

Substandard Care, Treatment, Or Surgery
Patients have a legal right to assume that the level of care provided to them by a medical staff member meets a certain standard. When this standard has not been met, victims may be entitled to compensation for any resulting harm. If a physician or other medical professional fails to provide a patient with the proper care, medical negligence has occurred.
Common medical errors may include medication mistakes, errors in surgery, improperly administered anesthetics, and other similar issues. Any of these scenarios may be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit handled by one of our Atlanta medical negligence lawyers.
Medication errors may involve the administration of the wrong drug, or the over- or under-administration of medications. Overdoses, allergic reactions, and other serious side effects frequently result.
Surgical errors may involve anything from amputating the wrong limb to death during surgery. Any such scenario deserves the immediate attention of our Atlanta medical negligence lawyers.
Under-administered anesthesia prior to surgery can mean excruciating pain during a procedure. Over-administered anesthesia is even more serious: it can easily lead to death.
