Medical Negligence

Medical-NegligenceGeorgia law requires that a healthcare provider, including doctors, nurses, and others, exercise a reasonable degree of care and skill in the treatment of a patient. Unfortunately, there are instances in which healthcare providers fail to exercise the appropriate degree of care and skill which can have disastrous consequences for the patient and his or her family. Depending upon where the negligence occurred, a hospital, doctor’s office or other healthcare facility may also be liable for the actions of the doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider, or even its own negligence.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful-DeathBergen and Bergen, P.C., represent the victims of wrongful death in Georgia.  Wrongful death claims are a unique subset of personal injury law, because the injury the firm asserts on behalf of the client is the loss of the contributions of the person who was killed.  Wrongful death claims do not seek to evaluate death or an individual’s life as a whole—there is no character trial in a wrongful death case.  The case aims to provide recompense for the people who lost the benefits of a loved one because of the negligence of another party.  The value of the life in a wrongful death claim is the true value of the life to the person bringing the claim.  The victims who have standing to bring a wrongful death case in Georgia must be married, related, or legally tied to the deceased.
