Georgia 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. Each case involving medical negligence is unique and requires extensive experience by attorneys who are familiar with the handling of such cases including knowledge of the pertinent medical fields as well as the resources to achieve the best results for individuals whose lives have often been dramatically changed.
