There are numerous cases every year of misdiagnosis when a physician (or other medical provider) has ordered the wrong test or failed to correctly interpret test results or failed to refer a patient to another “specialist” for further testing. These wrong decisions (in the medical field) are called “malpractice.”

Such errors can cause serious injuries or death to the victims. In some cases, a symptom quickly becomes so serious that the patient dies or is left in very poor health with far less chance of living their full life expectancy.

Patients may face negative outcomes, including death, crippling disabilities, or having to undergo a lengthy recovery. You are entitled to compensation if you or a loved one has been harmed by medical malpractice in Georgia.
