Experienced Griffin Lawyer Assists Medical Malpractice Victims

Skillful Georgia litigator takes on negligent doctors, nurses and hospitals

When we’re ill or injured, we put our lives in the hands of the doctors, nurses and hospitals that treat us. Though we want to believe that medical professionals will always adhere to their professional standards, that is not always the case, and serious or fatal harm can result. At Evans & Evans Attorneys at Law, P.C. in Griffin, our firm has decades of experience obtaining compensation for Georgia medical malpractice victims and their families. Determining whether the standard of care was violated can be a complicated process, but we have the skill, background and network of experts to give you an honest, accurate assessment of your legal options in a malpractice case.

Respected attorney demonstrates that standards of care were violated

The damage that can result from an instance of medical malpractice can be life-changing for plaintiffs and costly for defendants.  Medical providers and their insurance companies fight hard against these claims and use their power to defeat worthy actions. This is why you need a lawyer who has wide-ranging experience and a successful track record in this area. Attorney Larry Keith Evans has reviewed thousands of cases, securing substantial compensation for victims and even changing the way medical procedures are handled for future patients. Our firm handles all types of medical malpractice lawsuits, including cases arising from:

  • Surgical errors — Whether you’re under general or local anesthesia, you can never be sure exactly what is happening during surgery. If you’ve experienced a complication or suspect that something went wrong during the procedure, we have the ability to determine if a potential claim exists.
  • Misdiagnosis — The harmful effects of breast cancer, prostate cancer, heart attacks and other serious medical conditions can often be limited if symptoms are diagnosed properly. Conversely, a missed or incorrect diagnosis could be catastrophic. In these matters, we rely on experts to outline what steps should have been taken.
  • Birth injuries — Avoidable injuries that occur during pregnancy and childbirth can affect the victim and their parents for the rest of their lives. In cases relating to cerebral palsy, brain injuries and other harm affecting infants, we pursue a resolution that addresses the immediate and long-term harm.
  • Prescription drug problems — The prescription and administration of pharmaceuticals must be handled with the utmost care. Our firm represents individuals who’ve suffered due to incorrect dosages, failure to recognize dangerous drug interactions and allergic reactions that should have been avoided.
  • Anesthesia errors — Even the smallest error involving anesthesia could result in a dangerous lack of oxygen or other temporary or permanent harm. When this occurs, we work diligently to hold the negligent parties accountable.

You only have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit, but whatever the specific condition entails, it’s best to act quickly so that relevant evidence and witnesses can be gathered. Under Georgia law, an expert affidavit must be attached to the complaint, so we offer a free initial consultation to make sure you start the legal process promptly.
