Accidents are an inevitable part of life and everyone makes mistakes, but medical professionals are held to a much higher standard because patients trust them with their lives. When a healthcare provider acts in a way that violates acceptable professional standards either through negligence or recklessness, then they commit medical malpractice. If you believe that you or a loved one has been a victim of medical malpractice in Georgia, you only have two years in most cases to file a claim and a medical malpractice attorney like Casey Stevens can help.

Medical malpractice insurance is a multi-billion dollar industry for a reason. In the medical field, every action performed by doctors, nurses, and medical facilities effects the health of those in their care and the consequences of mistakes can be deadly. When a doctor, hospital, or other medical professional or facility is responsible for injuries to a patient, they employ a team of lawyers and medical malpractice insurance representatives to fight the claim and minimize or eliminate their financial liability. Casey Stevens spent ten years as an insurance claims manager and another four as a defense attorney for the insurance companies. He understands their tactics and has the knowledge and experience to recover the best possible settlement for your case.

Medical malpractice can result from the failure to perform medical procedures properly or in a timely manner, failing to properly diagnose a medical condition, or from not properly monitoring a patient during or after surgery. Doctors, nurses, and pharmacists can also commit medical malpractice by improperly administering anesthesia or making prescription errors like choosing the wrong medications or prescribing or administering the wrong dose. The truth is, medical malpractice can be committed by any healthcare provider at any point in a patient’s care. Casey Stevens has successfully represented clients who were victims of medical malpractice all over north Georgia. Our firm has experience with cases including, but not limited to:

The negligence of the health care provider or facility must have contributed to the injury suffered, but it doesn’t have to be the only cause of the injury.
