Atlanta Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Preventable medical errors kill as many as 98,000 Americans every year, making them the sixth leading cause of death. Errors kill more people annually than automobile wrecks or guns and at a cost to the economy of $29 billion.

Confidentiality laws often block disclosure of details about these errors from the public, even from the families of patients injured or killed.

We believe our civil justice system and the constitutional right to trial by jury can ensure accountability for preventable medical errors, improve the quality of medical care, deter wrongdoing and fairly distribute the costs of negligence from patients to the responsible parties.

Atlanta’s caring lawyers at Cauthorn Nohr & Owen provide aggressive and experienced representation to families suffering the consequences of preventable medical errors and malpractice. Because we select our cases carefully, we can devote the resources and attention necessary to consult with nationally respected experts to develop a thorough understanding of the facts and medical issues involved as we prepare each case for trial. This trial-directed approach provides the best results for our clients, including a history of both favorable pre-trial settlements and successful verdicts.

If you suspect that you or a family member suffered a preventable medical injury, it is important that you promptly contact an attorney qualified to handle these complex disputes. Delay only runs the risk of extending indefinitely the suffering already endured.
