All of us put a high degree of trust in our doctors, nurses, and hospitals. And when they respect that trust, we all are better off. But when a medical professional breaks that trust, the results can be tragic.

You may be left with permanent injury, or your loved one may have died as a result. In those situations, you need to talk to an experienced medical malpractice lawyer. That is where we come in.

We know how to listen to your story, examine the rules of medicine, prove your case, and win.

One of the most common errors we see in medical professionals is when they do not listen to you. We hope to remedy that. When handling your medical malpractice case, we ask that you listen to our experience and expertise, and we will listen to your perspective. After all, it is your life. It is your story. We want to hear it.

If a medical professional has been negligent, you probably feel as though your trust was violated. We know that, and we take seriously your willingness to trust us.

medical-malpracticeA medical malpractice lawyer has to be fluent in two languages – law and medicine. Having handled medical malpractice cases since the 1970s, we know both of these languages well. We are not intimidated by the science, and we know how to get everything the law has to offer.

To achieve justice for our clients, though, we need to know more than fancy legal or medical words. The lawyer needs to be able to communicate those truths to the jury or judge.

That is what we do at Cook & Tolley, LLP. We make complicated concepts simple to understand.

Our special experience and skills in medical malpractice cases have made us a resource to other lawyers. We are proud to be the ones that many fine lawyers refer their medical malpractice cases to. These lawyers recognize that although they are skilled in their areas of the law, medical cases are a different thing altogether. We enjoy partnering with them and bringing our expertise to bear.

If you think you might have a medical malpractice case, please contact us. And please do not delay. In most circumstances, a medical malpractice case in Georgia has to be filed no later than two years from the date you were first injured or misdiagnosed. Even if you just learned of the misdiagnosis, the two-year clock may have been ticking for a while.

We look forward to speaking with you.
