When someone is injured or dies in conjunction with medical care, either because of a medical professional’s actions or their inaction, the patient or their family may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Vandiver & Kaufman are very experienced in medical malpractice law. Contact us today and we will review the specifics in your situation and help determine if you have a viable medical malpractice lawsuit.
Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Case?
You must prove two things to be successful in a medical malpractice case:
The doctor or medical professional treating you made a mistake
You were harmed as a result of that mistake
How Long Do You Have to File a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?
In Georgia you have only two years to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. If you and your medical malpractice lawyer can not negotiate a settlement with the medical personnel at fault in your case, you must file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations runs out. Once the statute of limitations passes, you will be barred from filing a lawsuit and recovering any money.
Vandiver & Kaufman will focus on your medical malpractice case and ensure that you meet the required deadline.
