We rely on doctors and physicians to provide us with proper medical care when we are sick but sadly that's not always the case. When a scalpel is in the hands of an incompetent surgeon during surgery or when a physician neglects basic diagnosis procedure, we put ourselves at risk from suffering permanent injuries and death from the hands of these medical professionals we trust with our lives. There are laws that protect us against medical malpractice which give us the right to bring to court medical institutions and their staff and demand financial compensation. While getting the right monetary compensation cannot fully bring us back to our lives prior to the accident, it will pay for long term medical expenses and everything that can make life easier in dealing with permanent disability.
It takes years to recover from serious injuries even with the best medical care. The amount of money needed for long term treatment and medications will put considerable strain on any one's financial resources. The potential wages lost during the recovery period is equally great and should be included in the equation when seeking compensation along with mental and physical anguish that victims of medical malpractice suffer. In fact, the entire family of these victims suffer and must confront the financial nightmare of caring for a permanently disabled or bed-ridden family member. It's even harder if the victims are breadwinners who all of sudden were rendered incapable of providing the needs of their families.
It is the right of any victim of a negligent physician or a defective medical equipment to demand full compensation from those who were directly and indirectly responsible for the malpractice. The damages should be calculated to include long term medication cost, future doctor's fees, lost wages during recovery period, pain suffered from injuries and the mental trauma caused by the medical incompetence and neglect. Additionally, the cost of renovating a house to make it accessible to a recently disable family member and the various medical equipment needed during the whole recovery process should also be included when seeking compensation.
The legal process involve in taking a medical institution or physician to court is a nightmare. Lawyers have to battle against big insurance companies that will aggressively do everything it can to avoid paying for damages. The State of Georgia is not the perfect place to take a physician to court for medical malpractice where for the court to even consider the case, the victim must secure an affidavit from another physician attesting to the negligence of the accused . Finding a doctor to stand witness against a fellow doctor practicing in the same area is almost next to impossible and it takes a lot of resources to find a doctor from other States willing to write the affidavit.
If you feel believe you are a victim of medical malpractice, get the best legal help possible and file a case immediately. Make sure to have all the medical records including the hospital bills as these will help build a strong case against those who are responsible for the malpractice.
