We often hear clients say that they had no idea what to expect when they contacted an Atlanta cancer misdiagnosis attorney to file a lawsuit. We understand that the vast majority of our clients have not filed a Georgia medical malpractice lawsuit previously and may have never filed any kind of lawsuit beyond a common car accident or routine divorce. How could you know what to expect without the input of an experienced Atlanta cancer misdiagnosis lawyer?

An Atlanta Cancer Attorney Explains 6 Common Facts of Misdiagnosis Cases
While every medical malpractice case is unique, you should expect the following:

  • A formal complaint will not immediately be filed in court (unless you are right up against the statute of limitations or another compelling reason exists for a quick filing). Instead, your lawyer will investigate you case prior to filing the complaint.
  • Once the complaint is filed, the defendant(s) will file an answer to the court.
  • Then, the discovery phase of the lawsuit will begin. This may include, but is not limited to, depositions, interrogatories, and requests for production of documents.
  • Settlement negotiations can happen at any time.
  • If a case goes to trial, it may take some time before the trial begins.
  • An experienced Atlanta cancer malpractice lawyer will keep you informed about the status of your case as it proceeds and be available to answer your questions.
