Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Atlanta
Holding Negligent Medical Professionals Accountable
Georgia is home to some of the finest hospitals and physicians in the country, but unfortunately, medical malpractice still happens—even at facilities and physician practices with superior reputations.
Medical malpractice cases arise when an individual suffers injury or death as a result of a medical professional or hospital’s negligence. If a person suffers any complications that could have been avoided, medical malpractice has occurred.

Types of Medical Malpractice Cases

Below is a small sample of the kinds of cases our Atlanta medical malpractice lawyers take—if you are unsure whether or not you or a loved one have a case, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment.
While the birth of a child is usually a happy event for families, some newborns are sometimes seriously injured during the childbirth process. A small percentage of these babies suffer birth injuries that will adversely affect them for the rest of their lives.
Common birth injuries include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Brachial plexus
- Bone fractures
Our team has handled cases in which obstetrical mistakes and improper fetal monitoring led to avoidable birth injuries and traumas. Our on-staff physician reviews all medical records on behalf of our clients. This, combined with our long-standing experience, allows us to provide effective representation of clients’ interests, as well as the current and future interest of their children.
Surgical mistakes can lead to permanent, severe injuries or death. Examples of errors include surgical devices being left in the patient, surgery being performed on the wrong part of the body, and errors causing paralysis or permanent loss of function. Post-operative infections can be a product of surgical error.
Misdiagnosis / Failure to Diagnose
Medical misdiagnosis can lead to unnecessary and avoidable complications, and can also result in the loss of an opportunity for effective treatment of a dangerous condition. Both misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose can be grounds for a medical malpractice case. Warshauer Law Group’s experienced medical malpractice lawyers can help you sort through the confusion and inform you of your legal recourse after a misdiagnosis.
Gastric Bypass Surgery
Gastric bypass surgery has been offered as a long-term weight loss solution in the past few years. This is a complicated surgery that requires the surgeon to pay very close attention to technique and to the patient’s post-operative condition. If you have suffered serious complications from gastric bypass surgery, your records should be reviewed to determine whether you received proper care. Consult one of our Atlanta medical malpractice attorneys for a review of your claim.
Nursing Home Abuse & Negligence
Nursing home negligence claims can be filed in response to abuse, an improperly trained staff, or a range of other situations. If you have a loved one who is in the care of a nursing home and you suspect negligence, you may want to consult one of our experienced Georgia medical malpractice lawyers to see if you have a valid claim.
Negligent Treatment and Medication Errors
Medication errors are among the most common forms of medical malpractice. Examples of mistakes include physicians prescribing the wrong drug, nurses administering incorrect dosages, or pharmacists providing the wrong medication.
