When a person is hurt or damaged by a professional’s negligence or other error, Georgia law allows the victim who has suffered harm to recover damages and to be compensated for pain and suffering. Charles Scholle is a Gwinnett County personal injury and malpractice attorney who leads a team of lawyers and legal professionals at Scholle Law. Our law firm specializes in lasik eye surgery malpractice, ophthalmologist malpractice and optometrist malpractice as well as other areas. We have successfully represented many clients who have suffered harmed at the hands of their physician or other medical professional. Our eye-related injury practice helps those harmed by their medical professionals in such situations as a procedure that is performed incorrectly, an examination that fails to find a medical issue and other failures to meet the standard of care.
Malpractice occurs when a professional, such as a medical professional, fails to use the level of care or skill that is required. Even when a professional has a good reputation, in any given situation, professionals can fail to perform their skills properly and cause serious harm or tragically, death. The professional’s performance is compared to and based upon the standard of care for that profession within the community. We represent victims of injury caused by professional malpractice, as well as their families.
When the level of care or skill causes harm, Georgia law allows victims to recover from the injuries caused by the professional’s harm. In fact, the Georgia Supreme Court has determined that it is unconstitutional to limit the amount a victim can recover for what is called “pain and suffering” in medical malpractice cases because victims have a right to have a jury decide this issue.
There is a wide range of injury and damage that can occur in each type of malpractice, particularly in the medical-related fields. A very important part of developing a malpractice case against a medical or other professional is to have a deep knowledge and understanding of the medicine involved. Our experience in case development and management is key to our success in settling and, if necessary, taking a malpractice case to court. We know the standards of care that apply in various medical matters and we are familiar with litigating highly technical areas of medicine and law. A successful settlement or trial requires the ability to persuade. Persuasion requires the ability to communicate often complex medical issues in a way that a jury can understand. We know how to present expert witnesses and their testimony to help explain to the jury or court why the physician, hospital or other caused you harm. All of this knowledge also helps greatly to resolve a malpractice matter by settlement or mediation.
