Click here for our helpful checklist to assist you in pursuing your case.


If you believe you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, contact an attorney immediately.

Medical Malpractice cases are often complicated and costly. These cases are usually very fact and medicine-intensive, and expert analysis is required. Further, victims’ rights have been significantly impacted in recent years by the Georgia General Assembly. A determination about the viability of any potential claim can only be made by competent counsel armed with expert opinions. A tremendous amount of litigation has occurred in this area of law. Georgia victims and their families need a medical malpractice lawyer whose opinions they can trust.


What can you do to assist your attorney?

  • Gather as many of the medical records related to the possible malpractice as you can to assist in the case evaluation


  • Contact a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. Medical malpractice cases almost never settle without a lawsuit being filed. There is a two-year statute of limitations from the date of the malpractice in which to file suit.


  • Significant time may be necessary for a proper evaluation so that experts can be contacted for their opinions.


  • Significant resources may be required to fight and prevail in these cases. It may take $50,000.00 – $100,000.00 just to get a case to trial. Choose your medical malpractice lawyer carefully and select someone you can trust to fight for your rights.


  • Cooperate completely with the counsel you choose. Once you have made this important decision, your counsel will need your full cooperation to build a case that can win at trial.  Listen carefully to the advice you are given.
