For more than 30 years, attorneys at Parks, Chesin & Walbert have represented individuals who have been injured or killed as a result of negligent medical care. As much as we would like to believe that these cases are uncommon, a recent study conducted by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine found that medical errors in hospitals and other healthcare facilities claim more than 250,000 lives per year and may be the third leading cause of death in the United States, after heart disease and cancer. These findings were reported in the Washington Post and U.S. News and World Report.
Medical malpractice cases may involve misdiagnosis or the failure to diagnose a problem (such as cancer), surgical or medication errors, birth injuries, nursing home abuse or neglect, infections, and many other things. Whatever the specific medical problem, these cases are complex and challenging, and the best medical malpractice lawyer must have a thorough knowledge of both legal and medical issues. Parks, Chesin & Walbert has the people, resources, and experience to investigate and successfully pursue these claims for clients throughout the state of Georgia and, where appropriate, elsewhere.
