Is It Difficult To Prove Medical Malpractice In Georgia?

Medical malpractice comes about when a medical professional — a doctor, a dentist or a nurse, for example — causes a patient's injury or death as a result of grossly negligent care. When this happens, victims and their families are entitled to compensation from the careless practitioners and also, in many cases, from the hospital, group or institutions for whom they work.

However, medical malpractice suits are difficult to pursue. In Georgia, the statute of limitations is typically just two years — individuals must act quickly. Establishing that an injury arose from negligence or carelessness is far from easy. It takes an experienced lawyer to pursue such a case successfully.
