Marietta Medical Malpractice Attorney
When doctors or other medical professionals make mistakes or fail to act in accordance with accepted medical practices, it can turn patients into victims. When you or someone you love is injured by the reckless or negligent actions of someone you have trusted to heal you, there are avenues that you can take to prevent others from suffering in the same way, as well as allow you to receive financial compensation for your own injuries. A personal injury attorney can explain your legal rights and help you receive justice and the compensation that you and your family are entitled to under the law.
There is a reason why medical malpractice is a multi-million dollar industry – medical facilities and their staff are required to carry medical malpractice insurance to provide coverage for when mistakes are made. Unfortunately, the preference of the insurance companies is to pay out as little as possible or not at all. Attorney Casey Stevens knows how these companies operate because he worked for ten years as an insurance claims manager, and then another three as a member of their legal defense teams. He combines his expertise in the law and his insider knowledge of the insurance industry to ensure that his clients receive the settlements that they deserve. He has represented many medical malpractice victims all over north Georgia since opening his firm in 2001. Some examples of the types of medical malpractice cases that our office represents include:
- Emergency Room Errors
- Surgical Errors
- Pharmaceutical Errors
- Improper Treatment
- Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect
- Failed or Faulty Medical Devices
- Lack of Informed Consent
- Wrong or Delayed Diagnosis
- Birth Injuries
- Anesthesia Errors
- Hospital Negligence
- Wrongful Death

As in all personal injury cases, medical malpractice cases require proof that the health care provider acted recklessly or with negligence. To win a medical malpractice lawsuit in Georgia, you must be able to prove that the health care provider or facility committed a "breach" of the standard of care. 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.
Patients injured by medical malpractice in Georgia are entitled to compensation for current and future medical expenses, lost wages and future loss of earning potential, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering. When the negligence results in a loss of life, the family may pursue a wrongful death lawsuit and could receive compensation for lost wages from the time of injury to the time of death, lost future earnings of the deceased, medical expenses before the patient’s death, funeral expenses, and loss of companionship for spouses and children of the deceased.
