Birth Injury

While the birth of a child is usually a happy event for families, some newborns are sometimes seriously injured during the childbirth process, with a small percentage of these babies suffering injuries, such as Cerebral Palsy, paralysis, and other birth injuries that will adversely affect them for the rest of their lives. Our Vinings medical malpractice attorneys have handled cases in which obstetrical mistakes and improper fetal monitoring led to avoidable birth injuries and traumas. Because of our long-standing experience with birth injury cases and our on-staff physician who reviews all medical records on behalf of our clients, the medical malpractice lawyers at Wars hauer Law Group can provide effective representation of your interests, as well as the current and future interest of your child.

Surgical Errors

Surgical mistakes can lead to permanent, severe injuries or death. Examples of errors include surgical devices being left in the patient, surgery being performed on the wrong part of the body, and errors causing paralysis or permanent loss of function. Post-operative infections can be a product of surgical error.

Misdiagnosis or Failure to Diagnose

Medical misdiagnosis can lead to unnecessary and avoidable complications, and can also result in the loss of an opportunity for effective treatment of a dangerous condition. Both misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose can be grounds for a medical malpractice case. Wars hauer Law Group’s experienced Vinings medical malpractice attorneys can help you sort through the confusion and inform you of your legal rights, if you or a loved one has experienced a missed diagnosis.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass surgery has been offered as a long-term weight loss solution for the morbidly obese in the past few years. This is a complicated surgery that requires the surgeon to pay very close attention to technique and to the patient’s post-operative condition. If you have suffered serious complications from gastric bypass surgery, your records should be reviewed to determine whether you received proper care. Consult one of our Vinings medical malpractice attorneys for a review of your claim.

Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence

Nursing home negligence claims can be filed in response to abuse, to an improperly trained staff and a range of other situations. If you have a loved one who is in the care of a nursing home and you suspect negligence, you may want to consult one of our experienced Vinings medical malpractice attorneys to see if you have a valid claim.

Negligent Treatment and Medication Errors

Medication errors are among the most common forms of medical malpractice. Examples of mistakes include physicians prescribing the wrong drug, nurses administering incorrect dosages, or pharmacists providing the wrong medication.
