How Our Atlanta Medical Malpractice Lawyers Can Help if You’ve Been Dropped as Patient

How Our Atlanta Medical Malpractice Lawyers Can Help if You’ve Been Dropped as Patient

When you’re a patient at Piedmont, Emory, Wellstar, or another Atlanta hospital, you trust your medical team to keep you safe. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for avoidable falls to occur when patients are under a medical professional’s care. In many cases, patients fall because they’re dropped.

However, proving that you’ve been injured because you were dropped by your caretaker can be a challenge. And Georgia’s medical malpractice laws tend to favor doctors and hospitals, not patients. So that can add insult to injury when you’re seeking the compensation you rightfully deserve.

That’s where our Atlanta medical malpractice lawyers can help.

At Hasner Law, PC, we’ve spent decades standing up for injured patients and their families in Atlanta. We understand how difficult life can be after an avoidable hospital accident. We also know that the negligent medical professional must be held accountable. 

Focus on recovering from your fall injuries. Let our Atlanta law firm handle your medical malpractice case from start to finish.

  • We’ll investigate the circumstances of your fall accident and determine what led to you being dropped.
  • Our team will bring in specialists and medical experts to explain how the situation could have been prevented or avoided.
  • We’ll gather evidence to prove that your injuries were caused by you being dropped by a negligent doctor, nurse, or healthcare provider.
  • An accomplished attorney will handle negotiations with the hospital, insurance company, and other interested parties.
  • Our law firm will be fully prepared to take your case to a jury if you’re offered anything less than a fair settlement offer.

Give us a call or connect with us online to get started. Your first case evaluation is 100 percent free, and there’s no risk in asking for our help. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means our Atlanta medical malpractice attorneys don’t get paid unless we win your case. 

How Do Patients Get Dropped in Atlanta Hospitals?

Whether you’re in the emergency room or admitted as a patient, you rely on hospital staff a lot. Hospital visits and stays are typically spent in bed, and patients often require assistance moving around. 

Whether you’ve just given birth, been diagnosed with a debilitating illness, or sustained a catastrophic injury, you might need help:

  • Getting in and out of bed
  • Moving around your room
  • Using the toilet or washing your hands
  • Getting dressed or undressed
  • Showering
  • Walking down the hallway
  • Getting medical tests or procedures

Medical staff, including doctors and nurses, have a responsibility to help you do these things safely. When an appropriate level of medical care isn’t provided, you’re at an increased risk of getting dropped or falling.

Patients may be dropped if the medical staff:

  • Isn’t trained on patient movement and transportation properly
  • Fails to pay careful attention to moving a patient
  • Uses faulty or defective equipment to help them move a patient
  • Fails to use the necessary equipment to ensure a patient is moved safely

Our Atlanta dropped patient attorneys can review your situation and assess whether you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. If you are, count on us to help you fight the hospital to get every cent you deserve.
