When a person goes to a doctor in Fulton County with a health issue or simply to receive a checkup, one of the last things they're expecting is to be a victim of medical malpractice. A doctor or medical professional's error can take many different forms, from a mistaken diagnosis to a failure to diagnose. Either can result in a worsened medical condition by placing a patient in a position where he or she is receiving treatment that they didn't need or didn't get the medication or care that could have cleared up the issue.
No one believes that a doctor is making an error purposely, but they do happen through negligence or an inadvertent mistake. Medical expenses can be accrued and rise exponentially due to such medical malpractice. Having a medical condition that forces a person to visit a doctor and being told that it's nothing serious is a relief. If, however, the problem doesn't go away and it's later discovered that the condition was actually something that had to be taken care of, the mistake could lead to long-term damage or a fatality.
