Trusted Counsel For Medical Malpractice And Nursing Home Abuse
Doctors and other health care providers should be helping us when we are sick or injured. We trust them to diagnose diseases, treat illnesses and give reliable advice regarding our health and well-being. A large majority of physicians, hospitals and other medical providers are trustworthy, hardworking professionals we can rely on.
Like individuals in any other profession, they can make mistakes. In a medical setting, even one mistake can mean life or death. The cost of medical errors is high.
At the Williams Litigation Group, we believe the victims of medical malpractice should not have to pay for the negligent actions of a doctor or other health care professional. We work closely with individuals throughout Georgia to pursue an aggressive legal strategy that seeks to recover maximum compensation for a personal injury.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when the care provided falls below an acceptable level of care. What many people do not realize is that medical errors are usually not blatant. In many cases, these mistakes are quite subtle. Even worse, doctors and hospitals frequently ignore victims of medical negligence.
Medical malpractice is a serious incident, and may include any of the following acts:
- Failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis
- Surgical mistakes
- Failure to obtain informed consent
- Anesthesia errors
- Amputated limbs
- Injuries during birth to the mother or the child
- Unsterile equipment
Increasingly, insurance companies dictate the amount and level of care individuals receive. Unfortunately, patients must suffer the price. Too often, they suffer in silence.
With more than 30 years of combined legal experience, our attorneys are ready to stand up to the insurance companies on your behalf. We know the tactics they use to reduce or deny your claim, and we use this knowledge to create an effective strategy that protects your interests.
Justice For The Elderly And Their Families
Nursing home abuse is not restricted to nursing homes. Abuse can happen in hospitals, rehabilitation centers and even a senior’s own home. We work to hold negligent facilities and caregivers accountable for a broad range of nursing home and elder abuse, including:
- Emotional and mental abuse
- Inadequate supervision
- Medication errors and overmedicating
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Septic shock/sepsis
- Sexual abuse
- Unnecessary physical restraints
- Unsanitary conditions/poor hygiene

At the Williams Litigation Group, we are a voice for the injured. Victims of medical negligence are frequently ignored, even as doctors and insurers sweep their concerns aside. The people we represent have typically endured chronic pain and injuries aggravated by substandard care. We are proud of our track record helping them right these wrongs.
