It is a well-known fact that residents of Metro Atlanta have access to many of the finest medical institutions in the region. These institutions annually receive top ratings for their quality of care, hospital reputation, outcomes and caliber of staff, among others. Even in the best facility, however, errors in judgment and failure to follow established procedures can cause irreversible damage to a patient or loved one.
Regardless of a practitioner's intent, patient safety demands that careless medical providers be held accountable for the harm they cause. Whether the harm to the patient results from a misdiagnosis, incorrectly administered treatment, poorly maintained instruments, or a botched surgery, patients can file suit to hold careless providers responsible for the harm they have suffered.
