Georgia Personal Injury Trial Attorneys

Medical Malpractice

Fry | Goehring successfully helps the injured recover the compensation they deserve.

Settlement over twenty times the prior offer
We filed a law-suit, and shortly thereafter we obtained a settlement over twenty times the prior offer.
A driver that was illegally taking opioids
Our Firm helped a gentleman that was hit by a driver that was illegally taking opioids, which affected his driving. This caused serious injuries to our client. We had multiple depositions, worked with a toxicologist and other experts, and were ultimately able to obtain a very large, and confidential settlement, for our very deserving client.
Five times the initial offer
We received a referral case from another attorney. It was a hit and run case with a low offer, which is common for these types of cases. After our firm filed suit, we were able to take the case to mediation and settled for 5 times the initial offer.
Five times the initial offer
Following mediation, the insurance company ended up agreeing to pay 2.5 times the amount of its prior statutory offer of settlement to resolve the case and avoid a jury trial.
Recently settled at mediation for a confidential, but significant amount
We represented a very nice Hispanic lady that was severely injured when a thermos she was carrying blew up causing her eye damage. We spent significant time and resources on this case, and working with another Firm, recently settled at mediation for a confidential, but significant amount. Our client and her family were thrilled that we took the time, and the risk, to assist in this very serious matter.
Settlement over six times the previous offer
We recently represented a man that was bitten by a dog, that was not on a leash and not restrained as required by the applicable laws and ordinances. The initial offer to this gentleman did not even cover his medical bills. Our firm took over his case, and we secured a settlement of over six times the previous offer. We were happy to secure a great settlement for one of many dog bites cases that we handle every year.

Healthcare providers are expected to meet a certain standard of care when they treat patients. Under the law, medical providers are expected to provide treatment that is consistent with the type of care another physician with similar training would provide in similar circumstances. In the event that a healthcare professional errs in a negligent manner that causes harm to their patient, they can be sued for medical malpractice.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Due to the nature of the medical field, not every negative diagnosis or outcome is evidence of malpractice—there are limits to what doctors and other medical professionals are capable of, after all. Simply being unhappy with your treatment is not grounds for a medical malpractice case.

However, in some cases, a healthcare professional does fail to meet the accepted standard of care, causing a patient significant harm that should have been preventable. In such instances, the patient may be entitled to recover compensation under Georgia Code § 51-1-27.

Examples of grounds for medical malpractice claims include, but are not limited to:

  • Birth injuries
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Medication/prescription errors
  • Defective medical device malfunctions
  • Nursing home negligence
  • Blood test and laboratory errors
  • Careless behavior by paramedics and emergency officials
  • Failure to provide follow up care
  • Transfers of patients to another hospital without consent
  • Wrongful death

Available Damages & Compensation

By filing a medical malpractice lawsuit in Georgia, you may be eligible to receive compensation for economic and non-economic damages such as:

  • Past medical expenses, including hospital stays, surgeries, medication, etc.
  • Lost wages incurred from having to take time away from work
  • Out-of-pocket expenses, such as and mobility equipment and at-home caregivers
  • Punitive damages (in the event the medical error was especially outrageous)
  • Pain and suffering (mental anguish, loss of enjoyment, etc.)

Additionally, injured patients may also be eligible to receive compensation for the cost of future medical bills related to the injury, in the event the injury requires ongoing care. Fry | Goehring team will do whatever it takes to fight for the maximum amount of compensation available.

Do I Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?

To have a solid medical malpractice claim, you must be able to prove all of the following:

  • The defendant owed a duty of care to the plaintiff. To prove this, you will have to show that you (the plaintiff) and the at-fault medical provider (the defendant) established a doctor-patient relationship before the malpractice occurred.
  • The defendant breached this duty of care.
  • The plaintiff was injured as a direct result of this breach of care.
  • The plaintiff suffered actual, compensable damages due to their injuries, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
