Atlanta Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Call Kalka & Baer LLC Today at (404) 907-1594

Healthcare practitioners, such as hospitals, surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, etc. have a responsibility to uphold their duty of care to patients. Failure to do so can result in devastating consequences.

Medical malpractice cases are some of the toughest cases to pursue. Medical professionals rarely admit their mistakes and bad outcomes happen all the time in medicine in the absence of negligence. Juries often favor doctors who they inherently trust to do no harm. Accordingly, proving malpractice typically requires substantial resources of both time and money. Unfortunately, not every case can be pursued.

At Kalka & Baer, we limit the number of medical malpractice cases we take to ensure we devote the necessary resources to give our client’s best chance of a successful recovery.

Contact our office today to schedule a free initial consultation.

Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Claims

Do not delay in contacting a lawyer to see if you have a viable case. In Georgia, the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice claim is 2 years from the date of the injury. In most cases, this is the same date as when the alleged malpractice occurs. Furthermore, given the challenges involved in proving a malpractice case, attorneys often need nine months to a year or longer to evaluate a case before bringing suit. Thus, even a brief delay in contacting a lawyer can dramatically hinder the chances of being able to pursue a remedy for inflicted harms.

Types of Medical Malpractice

All healthcare providers owe a duty not to harm patients through substandard care. Thus, medical malpractice cases run the gammit of medicine.

Common types of medical malpractice claims involve:

  • Failure to properly administer anesthesia
  • Surgical errors
  • Failure to monitor patients following surgery
  • Birth injuries
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose

Pulling on the infant too hard, using forceps incorrectly, and failing to diagnose and treat fetal distress could lead to serious birth injuries. Surgical errors include leaving a surgical instrument inside the patient, making an incorrect incision, or performing the wrong procedure.
