Roswell Medical Malpractice
While mistakes are an accepted part of life, doctors and other medical professionals carry a responsibility to treat the patients in their care to the best of their ability without making mistakes that could have life altering or life ending effects. If a healthcare professional fails to act in accordance with accepted medical practices and a patient suffers injury or death, then the patient becomes a victim of medical malpractice. A personal injury attorney can help you to understand your rights and pursue a case to receive the compensation that you and your family are entitled to under the law.
Medical facilities and their staff are required to carry medical malpractice insurance to provide coverage for when mistakes are made, but the preference of the insurance companies is to pay out as little as possible or not at all. Attorney Casey W. Stevens understands how these companies operate because before attending law school, he worked for ten years as an insurance claims manager, and then another three as a member of their legal teams. He combines his knowledge of the law and of the insurance industry to get his clients the settlements that they deserve. He has helped many medical malpractice victims receive justice and compensation, including those involving:
- Lack of Informed Consent
- Wrong or Delayed Diagnosis
- Birth Injuries
- Hospital Negligence
- Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect
- Emergency Room Errors
- Surgical Errors
- Pharmaceutical Errors
- Improper Treatment
- 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.
According to current Georgia law, patients injured by medical malpractice in Georgia are entitled to compensation for a variety of things, including the following:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost wages and future loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering both now and in the future
- Loss of enjoyment of life
In the case of wrongful death, the family of the patient is entitled to compensation for:
- Lost wages from the time of injury to death
- Lost future earnings of the deceased
- Medical expenses
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of companionship for certain immediate family members
