  • Do I need a attorney ... or deal with the insurance company ?

    David’s Answer

    I agree with the answer of others, that you need to have a medical evaluation done. Very often the harm done by an impact isn’t felt immediately. This is why we caution people not to accept a quick settlement or to sign anything right away. Most people don’t have a lot of experience dealing with insurance adjusters, but personal injury lawyers do it all the time. I’d advise you to call a local attorney who offers a free initial consultation, take your medical records and the police report and find out whether legal representation can help you get a better outcome than going it alone.

  • I need an experienced malpractice Lawyer,,,, any suggestions?

    David’s Answer

    The fact that your sister has seen a new surgeon is a good first step. As someone else pointed out, a medical malpractice lawsuit in Georgia must include a sworn, written affidavit from a medical professional that they reviewed the case and found at least one negligent act or omission, and this doctor may or may not be willing to provide such a statement. Surgical errors can not only lead to the need for additional surgery, they can result in permanent loss of function or other irreversible consequences, so there definitely are situations in which a malpractice action is the recommended road to achieving a just resolution. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer should be able to review the basic facts of your sister’s experience and evaluate whether a lawsuit is advisable.
