When you put your trust in a doctor or other medical professional to perform a procedure or exam, you deserve to be confident that your caregiver is doing everything possible to make sure your body and your health are protected from any potential negative consequences. It is correct and appropriate for you to assume the highest quality of care from the professionals with whom you trusted your bodily health. Unfortunately, this high-quality care is not always offered, and your caregiver may have been at fault if you were seriously injured during your last medical treatment.
If you have been injured due to a medical error, you may be able to file a medical malpractice claim. At the law firm of Andrews & Sanders Law Offices in Savannah, Georgia, we have experience representing clients who have been injured due to medical negligence. In addition to representing civilians, we represent veterans who have been injured due to United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital negligence. These cases of medical malpractice with respect to veterans have specific laws that apply to them. Contact a Georgia VA hospital negligence attorney at our firm for a free phone consultation with a knowledgeable medical malpractice attorney.
Doctors, other medical professionals, and health care providers such as hospitals are legally required to adhere to professional standards of care in the services they provide to patients. When they violate those standards and someone is harmed as a result, that person is entitled to compensation for medical malpractice.
Our firm represents clients who have been injured due to all types of medical malpractice, including but not limited to the following:
Medical malpractice cases are unique in many ways, and it is important to consult a lawyer who knows what it takes to prove one of these claims. We work with qualified medical experts to document the exact causes of our clients’ injuries and the possible breaches of professional standards that were involved. We take these cases very seriously; as your personal physical health is just as important to us as our own. We offer firm legal support and we will fight for your rights. Additionally, we understand that injuries due to medical malpractice are an emotionally horrifying set of circumstances for an individual and their family to go through, so we will provide empathy and compassion the entire way.
If you have received treatment on a military base or in a VA hospital or other military medical facility and believe you have suffered medical malpractice, you need an attorney who is familiar with the unique laws that apply to military medical malpractice cases, including the Federal Torts Claims Act (FTCA) and the Feres doctrine.
