Steps to Take if You Suspect Medical Negligence in Atlanta

Having a baby is supposed to be a joyous occasion for a family. Tragically, for some families, the birth of a new child does not result in a happy growing family but instead results in death of the mother, the infant, or both.   The New York Times reported recently on one tragic case in which a mother died in a hospital after giving birth. The article not only shared that mother’s story, but also illustrated the problem of rising maternal mortality rates throughout the United States. atlanta birth injury

When a mother or baby dies in childbirth, surviving family members are left without loved ones. Financial and emotional damage result from these tragedies. An Atlanta medical malpractice lawyer should be consulted by victims and their families to understand what their legal rights are.

While nothing can bring back the lost loved ones, obtaining compensation can hold doctors and hospitals accountable and help families to cover medical costs and other financial damages.

Nursing home abuse and nursing home neglect are both issues that have a profound effect on the lives of the elderly in Atlanta. Abuse is very common among seniors, and especially among vulnerable groups like those who suffer from dementia or other cognitive impairments. atlanta nursing home abuse

While any senior who lives in a nursing home setting faces a very real threat of abuse and neglect, seniors who are most at risk of harm are those who do not receive regular outside visitors. Unfortunately, a substantial number of seniors fall into this category where visits never come or where visits are few and far between. Seniors who don’t get visitors need to know what their rights are, but often there is no one to speak up for them. This is why it is so important for families and friends who do see signs of abuse to take action.

Many consumers throughout Georgia purchase used vehicles when it comes time to buy a car. Purchasing a used vehicle can be a smart financial choice because you do not have to pay a new car premium and used cars often allow you to get far more bang for your buck.  However, when you are buying a used car, you need to be very careful to avoid potential pitfalls that could affect your safety. Just recently, the Huffington Post published an article warning about some of the dangers of used cars and alerting motorists to the fact that they could be at increased risk of accident from certain used vehicles. Atlanta car accident

Whether you buy a new or used car, it is important to understand what your rights are if a problem with a vehicle causes an accident to happen. Collision victims should be entitled to compensation from a car manufacturer if a defect in the vehicle is the direct cause of a collision or if a defect in a vehicle makes the injuries which are sustained in a  collision more serious than they would have been had the car performed as expected. An Atlanta personal injury attorney can provide assistance in pursuing a defective products case if there was a problem with a new or used vehicle.

Risks of Atlanta Accidents from Used Cars

Baby carriers and baby strollers are customary gear for parents of young children. Carriers and strollers are intended to help keep children safe and to help make families more mobile. Unfortunately, sometimes these devices that are meant to protect young children can actually result in them getting hurt. Atlanta accidents

When an infant or young child is injured as a result of an accident in a carrier or in a stroller, it becomes important to determine why the incident happened and who was to blame. In some circumstances, the infant’s injuries are the result of an unpreventable accident. In most situations, however, the problem stems from a poor product design, an absence of important safety features, a product defect, or a failure to warn parents of the risks of using the product.

When problems arise and babies get hurt, parents and young families need to know their rights. An Atlanta product liability lawyer can provide help in pursuing a claim for damages if the stroller manufacturer is to blame for the incident which caused harm

In the field of medicine, some things are simply not supposed to happen. The mistakes which it is unreasonable for a doctor to make are called “never events.” Unfortunately, never events happen very frequently, including one recent case reported on by CNN in which a doctor took a kidney out of the wrong patient. Atlanta Surgical Error

When a “never event” occurs, the very nature of the mistake is sufficient to show the doctor who made the error was unreasonably negligent. Victims who suffered injury due to this negligence can pursue a civil case for medical malpractice.

An Atlanta medical negligence lawyer can provide assistance to victims in understanding their legal options and maximizing their compensation when they have been harmed.
