Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice litigation is a primary focus at Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP. If you or a loved one has been injured due to negligent medical care, don’€™t hesitate to call our medical malpractice attorneys.

What is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is physically harmed by medical care that fails to meet accepted standards of practice, resulting in a worsened condition, injury, or wrongful death. Every year, medical mistakes cause thousands of preventable deaths in the United States.

How does medical malpractice occur?

A patient’s safety can be compromised in many ways. Your risk increases if you’re treated in a teaching facility where medical and nursing students fill the gaps in the hospital staff.

Below are several ways a doctor, physician’s assistant, nurse, aide, technician, home health nurse, or therapist can commit malpractice:

  • Failure to diagnose any disease or condition
  • Misdiagnosis of cancer, heart disease or any other disease or condition
  • Taking too long to diagnose or treat a condition that becomes permanent or fatal
  • Misreading tests
  • Failure to prevent sepsis, bedsores, and hospital-borne infections
  • Switched medications, wrong dosages, and other drug errors
  • Administering the wrong treatment
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Surgical errors, including unnecessary surgeries and errors in anesthesia
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Treating without proper consent
  • Failure to properly keep and read medical records

In certain instances, you may also file for damages against the hospital, treatment center, or nursing home.

Do You Have a Case?

To determine whether the circumstances of your case constitute true medical malpractice, we consult top medical experts who review and analyze the facts and render objective opinions.

Since malpractice suits are often expensive and difficult to prove, our medical malpractice law firm only accepts clients we’re confident have a strong chance of success. During your initial consultation, we will review the facts and give you a candid legal assessment of where you stand.

If you or someone you love were harmed while seeking diagnosis and treatment for any condition or disease, call Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP at 404-445-1411 or 1-800-688-2357, or send us an e-mail.

Client Testimonials
  • "I first met Nick Moraitakis under the worst possible circumstances. The sudden, tragic death of my husband left me alone with a young child. Needless to say, I was in shock and emotionally paralyzed, with nothing more than unanswered questions. At a loss and nowhere to turn, a family friend recommended I contact Nick. Little did I know the impact he would have on my life. From the moment we met, I knew he was someone I could trust. At a time when I was vulnerable and scared, trust was something that was hard to come by. He immediately went to work on my case, which was a great feeling because it gave me hope. He has walked me through the entire process, answered even the most trivial of questions, and perhaps most importantly, listened to me. He has always made himself available when I have needed him and I honestly feel that my case is important and a top priority. Words cannot begin to express how invaluable Nick has been through the most difficult time in my life. Nick has gone above and beyond the call of duty for me, and for that, I am forever grateful. I have been completely devastated by my husband’s death, but now that our financial future is more secure, I can focus on what is most important: raising my daughter the way my husband and I always wanted."  -Catherine G., Atlanta, GA

  • "We were very blessed to have Glenn representing us at a very difficult time in our lives. Due to medical negligence, our son was left brain damaged and severely incapacitated. Glenn was always available to us when we needed him and he took our concerns and needs seriously. We were treated as friends not just as clients and if Glenn didn’t have an answer for us when we asked, he would tell us “I don’t have an answer for you right now, but I will find out and get back to you” and he always did. Thanks to Glenn and his assistant Konnie, we were represented with legal counsel that exceeded our expectations."  -Allen and Catherine D., Atlanta, GA

  • "The best decision you can make. If you are reading this testimonial and wondering about Nick Moraitakis: Is he a good attorney? Can he help me? Does he understand what I am going through? Will he give me the attention and time I seek? Does he know his way through the Law, in the Courts and with the Judges? Will he understand how important this case is to me? Is he honest? Does he have great integrity? … Does his staff reflect his values and professionalism? My answer YES and YES!!!! Nick Moraitakis represented me in a challenging case and at a difficult time in my life. Having him as my attorney was the best thing that could happen to me- He had my best interest in mind, he worked with me as if I was his only client and was with me all the way through!"  -Simona E., Atlanta, GA

  • "I nearly died on an operating room table and had many complications. I was referred by another law firm to Glenn Kushel. I do not regret my decision to have them represent me in this matter. They were great! They came to me, as I was unable to travel. They listened and really cared about you as a person. They always returned my calls the same day. Their legal assistant Konnie Tate is the best. Glenn and his staff got me all the compensation I was entitled to. They worked hard to make sure I could get back on my feet and take care of my children. Thank you Glenn, Konnie & staff for all your hard work."  -Rhonda H., Atlanta, GA
