We Can Help with All Kinds of Medical Malpractice
There are many different categories of medical malpractice. You might have a legal case if you were injured due to:
Medical professionals must identify your ailment before you can be treated. Patients can suffer serious injuries if they are misdiagnosed or if a doctor takes too long to diagnose them. You may also be injured if a healthcare professional fails to diagnose your illness or injury.
Doctors prescribe medication for many reasons, including to fight pain or to deal with an infection. Unfortunately, some medications interact badly with one another, or cause an allergic reaction in a patient. You may also be injured due to an error with anesthesia, which is a special gas that is used during surgical procedures.
Some medical professionals end up making serious mistakes in the operating room. You may deserve compensation if a surgeon left behind a tool or operated on the wrong part of your body.

The state of Georgia generally gives individuals two years to file a medical malpractice case. There are a few exceptions to this rule, including:
The Statute of Repose
Georgia’s statute or repose allows you to file a lawsuit within two years of discovering that you suffered from medical malpractice. However, you are still subjected to a five-year total statute of limitations. That means you only have three years to realize medical malpractice took place.
Note that this statute of limitations does not apply if we can prove that a healthcare professional used misrepresentation or fraud to hide the medical malpractice.
Medical Malpractice Against Minors
In general, minors face the same statute of limitations as other medical malpractice victims. However, the two years will not be counted until after a minor reaches the age of seven. Additionally, the statute of repose will only go into effect once a minor is ten.
