You go to doctors, hospitals, and other medical professionals to heal, but sometimes, their carelessness can cause serious and even fatal injuries or illness. Victims of medical malpractice can feel betrayed by their own doctors as they face even more medical procedures and costs. They may feel helpless and powerless to get the medical help they seek. They need legal advice to get compensation for their hurt and loss.
Are you attempting to recover from a medical malpractice injury because of a medical provider’s negligence?
You don’t have to worry about the legal system any longer. In Athens, in Hartwell and throughout Northeast Georgia, The Van Dora Law Firm, LLC, has experienced medical malpractice attorneys who will empower you and fight for your interests in and out of court.
Modern medicine is a highly technical field. Doctors, nurses, hospital staff, and other medical professionals can make a wide variety of mistakes even during routine procedures. Medical malpractice could be as obvious as accidentally leaving foreign objects in a patient after surgery or as subtle as failing to consider drug interactions in prescribing treatment. When a medical professional’s work falls beneath the standard of care, you may be entitled to compensation for the injury you suffer as a result of their negligence. However, medical malpractice cases are often complicated and can be difficult to prove. You and your personal injury attorney will need to work with skilled medical experts to establish what the doctor or hospital did wrong and prove the damages you suffered as a result.
Medical malpractice often isn’t obvious right away. It may take weeks, months or even years before you realize that the pain or symptoms you are experiencing is because of a mistake made by your doctor. However, in Georgia, you have a relatively short window to file a medical malpractice claim compared to other types of personal injuries. You may have as little as one year to identify the problem, determine who or what caused it, and get an expert to confirm it was due to medical malpractice. It is essential that you speak to a personal injury attorney as soon as you believe you have a medical malpractice claim, so that your team can connect you with the right experts and get your case filed before the deadline.
At The Van Dora Law Firm, LLC, our personal injury legal team has one goal at every stage of your case: to get you the maximum financial compensation you deserve. We can help you recoup lost wages, health care expenses and non-economic damages like pain and suffering and emotional trauma. When a physician’s mistake takes the life of a spouse or family member, we can help you collect wrongful death damages including funeral and burial expenses and loss of companionship or support.

It also means you have nothing to lose, and potentially much to gain, by contacting us to discuss your medical injury.
