Dealing with consequences of medical negligence

Medical Malpractice

When someone’s life or health hangs in the balance, there is simply no room for error. When doctors or support staff grow careless or make mistakes, the consequences are devastating. Our Georgia brain injury attorneys have a demonstrated record of holding doctors and hospitals accountable for negligence in diagnosis and treatment. Talk to the lawyers at Anastopoulo & Clore to find out how we can assist you with your case.

At Anastopoulo & Clore, LLC, we represent clients seriously injured during:

  • Anesthesia
  • Birth and labor
  • Blood transfusion
  • Organ transplant
  • Surgery

Responding to the demands of a hospital emergency room or a surgical ward requires on-the-spot decision-making. When faced with a high-risk situation, anesthesiologists can make mistakes. Usually, these mistakes are not the result of incompetence, but of flawed vigilance. When anesthesia accidents happen, it is our job to determine if negligence was involved. Speak to an attorney at Anastopoulo & Clore for legal advice. When you suffer as a result of anesthesiology errors, our attorneys help you pursue justice through the courts.

Birth injuries
When doctors make mistakes during birth, the outcome is potentially devastating to parents and child. An interruption in the flow of oxygen to the brain can result in a birth injury like brain damage or cerebral palsy—lifelong injuries that will forever affect your child’s quality of life. When an obstetrician acts appropriately during a birth emergency, birth injuries can generally be avoided. In the unfortunate times when an obstetrician does not react correctly to prevent an injury, medical negligence may be the cause of trauma. If you or a family member has suffered as a result of birth injuries, please contact our medical negligence lawyers for a free initial consultation.

Blood transfusion
Primarily, blood transfusions save lives. But when doctors and hospitals are negligent in pre-screening blood samples or following the appropriate protocol to stem blood loss, it is the patient who suffers the consequences. When you have contracted a blood-borne disease—like Hepatitis or AIDs—or suffered serious blood loss due to medical negligence, speak to our attorneys. We will honestly assess your situation to see whether you have a case.

Organ transplant
Medical errors associated with organ transplants are often fatal. When you contract a bacterial infections like meningitis, blood-borne diseases like HIV, or are transplanted with a substandard or diseased organ, you may have a case for medical malpractice. With over 100 years of combined personal injury experience, Anastopoulo & Clore can help you seek the justice you and your family deserve.

Surgical injuries
A surgical injury can leave you with medical complications and permanent disabilities. In many cases, the injury could have been prevented and was caused by negligence on the part of doctors or hospitals. When your surgeon has punctured a vital organ or performed the wrong medical procedure, our attorneys are here to assist you. We help you get a better understanding of the long-term and short-term consequences of a surgical injury. And we can help you pursue the legal remedies to which you are justly entitled.

Do not just sign away your rights. Talk to a lawyer.
While you are coming to terms with the life-altering consequences of medical malpractice, the doctors and hospital have only one concern—how to limit their own liability and financial exposure. As a result, shortly after an accident, an investigator, insurance claims adjuster, or other representative may want to take statements, have you sign documents, and settle your claims without considering the full extent of your injuries. This benefits the insurance company and puts you and your family at risk. Speak to our head injury lawyers in North Carolina for assistance with your case.
