Pursuing Just Recovery for Victims of Medical Negligence

We trust doctors, nurses, and other healthcare practitioners to provide us with proper care and adequate medical treatment.

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or medical professional acts negligently and a patient is harmed as a result.

At Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley, P.C., we are committed to helping injured victims and their families after a medical mistake leaves them dealing with significant damages. Our Athens medical malpractice lawyers rely on their collective decades of experience, in-depth knowledge of this area of law, and extensive available resources when preparing your case.

If you believe that you or a loved one were the victim of medical malpractice, get in touch with our firm today.

What are the Different Types of Medical Negligence?

There are a number of ways that medical malpractice can occur. Generally speaking, if a doctor, nurse, or other medical practitioner demonstrates negligence—either through careless or reckless action or inaction—and a patient suffers injuries as a result, this can be considered medical malpractice.

Common examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Negligent prenatal care
  • Birth injuries
  • Improper treatment
  • Medication errors
  • Surgery errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Equipment malfunctions

How is Liability Proven in Medical Malpractice Cases?

Medical malpractice is a very complicated area of law. In order to prove that medical negligence occurred, an individual or family member must prove that the patient had a relationship with the doctor (for example, the patient hired the doctor for treatment), that the doctor acted negligently, and that the patient was harmed by this negligence. You will also have to show if the treatment had been administered competently, the patient would not have suffered injury.

Medical practitioners are required to meet certain standards of care and provide reasonably skilled and careful treatment. When they fail to do so, our attorneys are here to help. We have experience navigating this complex practice area and can handle your medical malpractice case from start to finish. We know how to negotiate with liable insurance companies, what paperwork must be filed, and are prepared to offer you outstanding representation in both settlement and trial.
