D2115_29_296_1200-300x200On March 24, 2022, WAGA-TV FOX 5 in Atlanta reported that a Hall County jury ruled Northeast Georgia Medical Center gynecologic oncologist Dr. Andrew Green committed medical malpractice in a case where his patient later died. The doctor and the medical center were ordered to pay $3 million to the victim’s family.

On the day of that report, the Georgia Court of Appeals threw out the jury’s decision, agreeing with the defense’s assertion that the patient’s estranged husband should have filed the lawsuit instead of what victim’s mother and children. You can avoid these kinds of devastating rulings by making sure you are working with an experienced Atlanta medical malpractice lawyer when taking legal action.

The Statute of Limitations

In the state of Georgia, there is a two-year statute of limitations on medical malpractice claims. This means that you cannot file a lawsuit more than two years after the date your injury occurred. No matter how strong your case is, you will not be able to recover compensation for your injuries if you do not file within two years.
