No one is 100 percent perfect and errors do happen from everyone, including the doctors. So, how do you know if a mistake/negligence by a doctor is medical malpractice? Many people are unaware that they have a possible medical malpractice case.

By contacting The Cochran Firm Atlanta, we can provide a free initial consultation to discuss your case and let you know if you have been injured due to medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice is professional negligence, either by an action or the failure to take action by a caregiver (hospital, doctor, nurse, surgeon, etc.)in a way that differs from the acceptable standards within state law, federal law, and the laws of the medical community.
Unfortunately, the burden of proof will lie on the shoulders of the victim of the medical malpractice. This is not an easy task, as two doctors can treat the same injury or illness differently even if they have similar backgrounds, training, and expertise.
If you are able to prove that a healthcare professional’s actions resulted in harm to the patient, you will then need to show the extent of the damages (physical, psychological, financial, etc.) that incurred as a result of the medical malpractice. This should include hospital bills, doctor bills, lost wages, or other compensations.
Sadly, a large number of medical malpractice cases go unclaimed due to the lack of proof or fear on the part of the injured party. In some wrongful death cases, the malpractice may never be detected due to the assumption that the patient passed away as a result of the patient’s disease or injuries. Or, it may happen that the victim gets lured into taking a quick settlement, but it is better to step back for a moment and think.
Health care is expensive even when it is correctly executed. As a victim of medical malpractice, your recovery could be even more expensive which could seriously disrupt your finances. In this case, it is crucial to file a medical malpractice case.
