Professional Negligence

Every day, members of our community and our state put their trust in professionals who received specialized training to provide medical care or other professional services to protect them physically and financially. Georgia law places upon such professionals a duty of care to act in the best interest of their patients or clients by practicing their profession at a minimum level of competence. When their conduct falls below that threshold, and injury, death, or other financial loss occurs, Georgia law entitles the victim to compensation.

Medical malpractice is one form of professional negligence in which a physician's care falls below that minimum level of care expected of physicians generally and in like circumstances. To recover for medical malpractice, a victim must establish the existence of a physician-patient relationship, a duty of care, a breach of that duty, causation, and damages.
