Medical Malpractice

DeKalb County Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Serving Clients Throughout the Greater Atlanta Area

When a doctor, surgeon, or other licensed healthcare provider fails to completely perform their medical duties and causes injury to their patients, they can be sued for medical malpractice.

However, before a patient can collect compensation for their injuries, they will need to establish that the physician’s actions were negligent.

Establishing Negligence

“Negligence,” in a medical malpractice case, means that the health care provider failed to do what other qualified medical professionals would have done under similar circumstances.

Medical malpractice cases require the following in order to establish negligence:

  • The existence of a duty owed by the doctor to the plaintiff
  • Proof that the accepted standard of care was deviated from by the health care professional
  • A clear link between the health care professional's deviation from the standard of care and the patient's injury

To meet these standards, the plaintiff will need to present testimony from another medical expert who is qualified in the same area of medicine as the defendant. The plaintiff will also need to prove that they had a doctor-patient relationship with the person they are suing.

This means that the patient hired the doctor and the doctor agreed to be hired. The doctor-patient relationship is usually scrutinized in situations where the consulting physician doesn’t directly treat a patient.
