Representing People Injured Due To Medical Errors
When you put your trust in a doctor or another 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 appropriate for you to assume you will receive the highest quality of care from the professionals you trusted with your health. Unfortunately, this high-quality care is not always provided, and your caregiver may have been at fault if you were seriously injured during 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 negligence at hospitals run by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Specific laws apply to cases of medical malpractice involving veterans. Contact our firm for a free phone consultation with a knowledgeable medical malpractice attorney.
Our Lawyers Hold Doctors And Hospitals Accountable
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:
- Birth injuries
- Surgical errors
- Unnecessary surgery
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Failure to diagnose other conditions
- Improper anesthesia
- Improper treatment
- Medication errors
- Nursing home abuse and neglect
- Dental malpractice
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 seriously, as your health is just as important to us as our own. We offer firm legal support and will fight for your rights. Additionally, we understand that injuries due to medical malpractice are emotionally horrifying, so we provide empathy and compassion the entire way.
