Can Mental Health Professionals Commit Medical Malpractice?

Representing Atlanta, Savannah, Columbus, Decatur, Augusta & nearby areas of Georgia

 

When we think of medical malpractice, we tend to think of surgical errors, birth injuries, traditional medical practices. However, our Atlanta medical malpractice lawyers understand that mental health professionals can also do serious harm through negligence or misconduct.

We place a lot of trust in psychologists, psychiatrists and therapists. We tell them our deepest secrets and share with them our dearest desires. The vast majority of medical professionals behave ethically and seek to treat their patients with compassion and skill.

However, some break their sacred trust, and the harm suffered by patients is real. Unfortunately, these patients often struggle to be heard, as many of them are in a psychologically vulnerable state and aren't taken as seriously as they should be.

We take you seriously. Our medical malpractice lawyers can help if you've been hurt by a mental health professional's negligence. This negligence can take the form of:

  • Prescription medication errors
  • Violation of patient confidentiality
  • Mis-use of medical restraints

We'll talk to you about your case at a free, confidential initial consultation. We'll listen to your story, ask you some questions and help you decide if legal action is right for you.
