Medical Malpractice Archives

Some patients would be wise to seek a second opinion

A medical misdiagnosis is an error that can have a profound effect on a person's life. That is why some Georgia residents choose to seek a second opinion before undergoing a treatment that they have doubts about. Doing so may not only prevent unnecessarily invasive forms of treatment, it may even save lives. According to Fox News, mistaken diagnoses occur in one fifth of patients. Of those cases that are misdiagnosed, 50 percent of the errors may be dangerous for the patient.

Trial odds in favor of doctors, claims Georgia medical insurer

Patients have the right to pursue compensation against a doctor or health care facility if they are harmed by medical negligence. However, states a prominent Atlanta medical provider insurance company, medical malpractice lawsuits that go to trial most often end up in the doctor’s favor.

How can medication errors be prevented?

If you go to a hospital, the assumption is that you will get better or your condition will improve. However, as many people in Georgia and around the country have learned, medication errors are frequent and can lead to serious injury and even death. For example, a report published in the National Institutes of Health reports that one in seven patients in a hospital had an adverse drug reaction, many of whom had to have additional medical care.

Recognizing the true cost of failing to diagnose cancer

A cancer diagnosis can be an incredibly traumatizing event for not only medical patients but for their families as well. The immediate shock of learning that you have cancer can be frightening, and the idea of having to go through long and painful cancer treatments can seem overwhelming. For too many people, however, the experience is made even worse by the fact that their cancer was not properly diagnosed in the first place.

Reports reveal problems at VA hospitals in Georgia and elsewhere

The men and women who have served in our military must go to a Veterans Affairs facility in Georgia or elsewhere in order to obtain medical care. While many people receive adequate treatment, too many experience a negligent doctor and suffer the consequences. Recent reports detail just how devastating these mistakes can be.
