Cobb County Medical Malpractice Claims

Georgia personal injury attorneys often specialize in specific injury-related claims and cases instead of representing clients in any type of case where an injury was sustained. For instance, our attorneys at Jones & Swanson specialize in automobile accidents, wrongful deaths, slip and falls, animal bites, and defects in automobiles that cause crashes or injuries. That does not mean, however, that our attorneys are not knowledgeable in other personal injury law fields. Andrew W. Jones and M. Chase Swanson have experience representing clients in a broad range of claims for injuries. These specialization areas are simply the main areas of focus for Jones & Swanson. Because we have over 40 years of combined experience in the personal injury field in Marietta, we have established knowledge and professional contacts that represent clients in all types of injury-related claims. For instance, Andrew W. Jones no longer takes on a vast amount of medical malpractice cases, but he has an extensive list of Georgia medical malpractice attorneys that he refers cases to when a caller inquires about a medical malpractice claim.

Surgeons, doctors, nurses, and others providing medical care usually treat patients professionally and adequately. Unfortunately, there are instances when medical providers such as those cause further injuries or deaths to patients because of negligence. These medical providers agree to a high degree of responsibility when they decide to work in the medical field proving care for others. So while other professions may allow room for minimal mistakes, those in the medical field have a direct effect on the well-being of others. When medical professionals act in a negligent or careless way while treating patients, serious or fatal injuries may be sustained. Regrettably, these medical mistakes often lead to claims of medical malpractice against those health professionals.

Just last week, news for a Douglasville medical malpractice case was reported by the Marietta Daily Journal. Judge Adele Grubbs disqualified WellStar's defense in a claim against the company made by Pamela Kemp. The Cobb Superior Court judge gave a default judgment because the lawyers representing WellStar intimidated a witness. Kemp's claim is in regards to her husband's death because she claims he was given medication that caused respiratory failure, brain impairment, and his eventual death. She claims that the doctors did not take into consideration his daily consumption of tobacco and alcohol, which would have made a difference in his treatment had it been considered.

Prescription errors such as these often lead to further illness and even wrongful death of loved ones. These claims require a vast amount of research and understanding of medical malpractice claims, so contacting an experienced injury attorney right away is important.
