We Understand What Constitutes Medical Malpractice in Sandy Springs
In Georgia, O.C.G.A. § 51-1-27 defines medical malpractice as substandard medical care that does not meet the acceptable standard. To prove medical negligence, we identify the following elements:
- A healthcare professional owed you a duty of care. This is a given in all doctor/patient relationships.
- Your health was damaged by a medical error or omission.
- Your injury would not have occurred without the breach.
- You suffered subsequent financial damages.
Our investigation will find evidence that documents the other party’s negligence and identifies all financially liable parties.
Our Medical Malpractice Lawyers Handle Cases Related to These Incidents
You can recover damages for medical malpractice from more than physicians and surgeons. Potentially liable parties can also include nursing staff, hospitals, dentists, and other negligent healthcare professionals.
Our law firm advocates for clients who have suffered:
- Anesthesia errors
- Birth injuries
- Adverse drug interactions
- Exam errors
- Medication errors
- Missed diagnosis
- Retained foreign objects
- Surgical errors
- Wrongful death
When you sought medical attention, you expected (and deserved) to receive the best care possible. If that didn’t happen (and you suffered injuries as a result), our personal injury lawyers want to advocate for what you need. Even if you don’t see your specific situation on this list above, we invite you to call now and start your free case review.

Georgia’s Statute of Limitations for Sandy Springs Medical Malpractice Cases
Like all civil lawsuits, your medical malpractice case has a state-imposed statute of limitations that defines how long you have to file. In Georgia, you generally have two years from the date of the incident or the date of its discovery to file your lawsuit, according to O.C.G.A. § 9-3-71.
The filing deadline is mandatory but can be difficult to interpret since it can vary based on certain circumstances of your case. The sooner you put our legal team to work, the more time we have to investigate your case and determine the appropriate filing deadline.
Evidence We Collect to Build a Compelling Medical Malpractice Case File
Our medical malpractice lawyer will support your case with evidence that proves the cause and costs of your medical injury. The case file we build for you will include:
- Exam and test results
- Expert testimony
- Hospital records
- Injury photos
- Lay witness statements
- Medical bills
- Medical records
- Medication records
- Proof of lost income
- Video footage (if obtainable)
We also use the evidence we collect to steer your case toward a fair and appropriate settlement rather than a potentially lengthy trial. If a settlement agreement cannot be reached, we will not hesitate to take your case to court for final resolution.
We Can Obtain the Required Medical Malpractice Affidavit of Merit
Georgia law—O.C.G.A. § 9-11-9.1—requires you to file an Affidavit of Merit with your case. This document contains a third-party medical expert’s testament to the validity of your case and describes the details of the medical error.
The Affidavit of Merit can be difficult to obtain on your own, so our client-focused team will handle it for you, including finding and consulting with a qualified expert. We will also review the affidavit and file it according to state law.
