Are You Eligible to File a Medical Malpractice Claim?

Medical malpractice law is very complex and often misunderstood. It is designed to protect patients from negligent medical care and can offer options to obtain compensation for injuries caused by medical negligence. However, not all injuries that occur while under medical care fall under the description of medical malpractice. If you were harmed or lost a loved one when receiving medical treatment, do you know if you are eligible to file a medical malpractice claim?

What Is Medical Malpractice?

The key word to keep in mind when determining whether medical malpractice occurred is negligence. Medical treatment is never a guarantee to cure illness or fix injuries – there are risks with most procedures, medications and surgeries. However, patients should be provided at least the standard level of care. Medical malpractice claims must show that negligence occurred during the treatment, not meeting the standard level of care, and that due to this negligence, the patient was harmed.

Types of Medical Malpractice Claims

While you may have heard of gross negligence when patients are badly or fatally injured from medical malpractice, there are many types of medical negligence. A medical malpractice claim must prove negligence and harm – if the patient wasn’t harmed, it is not considered a legal matter but instead a conduct concern. Medical malpractice cases we handle at Conley Griggs Partin include:

  • Infections acquired in the hospital
  • Surgical errors
  • Lack of standard care in hospitals, resulting in injury
  • Anesthesia injuries or fatalities
  • Failure to accurately diagnose, resulting in harm

If you have been harmed due to negligent care, you may have a medical malpractice claim. This legal process can provide compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other costs that were caused by the medical negligence. This could occur if you were not diagnosed properly, given the wrong treatment or received the wrong medication, resulting in illness or injury.

For those who believe they were injured due to medical negligence, or lost a loved one from poor medical care, there are legal options. Our experienced legal team at Conley Griggs Partin will listen to your claim and discuss whether you are eligible to file a medical malpractice case.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
