Georgia Medical Malpractice Law
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider fails to exercise the minimum level of care and skill required under a particular medical situation. Georgia malpractice cases are very complex and expensive to pursue. As such, they should only be handled by attorneys with significant experience, knowledge and resources. Henry Spiegel Milling is universally regarded as one of the top law firms practicing in this area of the law. Our vast experience, combined with our knowledge of the industry, has allowed us to consistently obtain significant results for our clients over the last 20 years.

The partners of our firm have over 75 years of combined experience handling medical malpractice cases of all varieties. We have handled cases arising out of routine medical care (such as failure to diagnose breast cancer, failure to properly interpret pap smears, failure to recognize fetal distress), as well as cases involving rare disorders such as unusual tumors, infections, or coagulation abnormalities. We have handled cases involving significant brain and spinal cord injuries to both adults and children, and we are routinely involved in cases involving wrongful death. We have experience litigating cases against individual doctors, medical groups, hospitals, health maintenance organizations, in-home nursing corporations and nursing homes. Because of our vast experience in this area, we possess a level of knowledge and understanding of medicine and medical malpractice law that far exceeds that of the overwhelming majority of personal injury attorneys. It is crucial that you ask any attorney you speak with about a potential medical malpractice case to tell you how many malpractice cases they routinely handle and how many medical malpractice cases they have tried to a jury verdict. Experience matters.
The medical malpractice industry in the State of Georgia, as well as in the Southeast United States, is relatively small. As a result, there are only a handful of law firms that practice medical malpractice law “day in and day out.” Henry Spiegel Milling is one of those few firms. Because we have practiced in this area for so long with excellent results, we have developed relationships within the industry that are extremely beneficial to our clients. The insurance industry and the attorneys representing the medical profession know our firm, have usually worked with us many times before, and are aware of our reputation for aggressively pursuing these cases for our clients. All of this, we believe, leads not only to increased recoveries for our clients, but moreover, to increased recoveries for our clients in a shorter amount of time. The bottom line is that in order to obtain significant results for a potential client in a medical malpractice case, the attorney must be well known in the industry and must also personally know the industry “players.” Henry Spiegel Milling satisfies both of these criteria. Knowledge is key.
Atlanta malpractice lawsuits are demanding in many way ways. First, Georgia and Atlanta medical malpractice cases are extremely expensive to pursue, with costs of the litigation easily in excess of $50,000 per case and, quite often, over $100,000 per case. In addition, the cases are time consuming and sophisticated. At Henry Spiegel Milling, we have the resources necessary to effectively pursue these cases, and this is something that prospective clients should closely consider when choosing an attorney experienced in malpractice in Georgia. Not only do we have years and years of experience handling medical malpractice in Georgia, but we have a full time Registered Nurse on staff to assist throughout the process. Finally, we have the financial ability to advance all of the costs necessary to prosecute any malpractice case Clients are never asked to advance the costs for their case; rather, the costs are advanced by the firm for the client.
