When you need a nursing home abuse lawyer in Georgia, you should look no further than Suthers Law Firm. Based in Savannah, the knowledgeable injury attorneys there were among the first in the United States to sue a nursing home and obtain a successful jury verdict back in the 1990s, a time when other law firms refused to take on such cases. After obtaining a successful jury verdict on behalf of the family of a victim of neglect by an Atlanta-area nursing home, attorneys throughout the States of Georgia and South Carolina began to associate Suthers Law Firm on other nursing home cases. Some examples of the types of cases we have handled against nursing homes involve victims who have developed pressure sores, which are also referred to as decubitus ulcers or bed sores, cases involving malnutrition or dehydration, cases involving falls and broken bones, and cases involving an unexplained death of a nursing home resident. Representing victims of abuse and neglect in nursing homes remains a substantial part of the lawyers’ practice at Suthers Law Firm. When you need an injury lawyer in Savannah to represent you in a case against a nursing home, call the Suthers Law Firm for a free consultation.

Cases involving medical negligence or so-called medical malpractice and cases involving defective medical products are among the most complex and challenging cases that a lawyer can handle. Consequently, only a few medical malpractice attorneys in Savannah are willing to take on these cases. Some examples of the types of cases that the Savannah medical malpractice lawyers at Suthers Law Firm handle include cases involving failures or delays in diagnosing serious medical conditions such as breast cancer or lung cancer, cases involving surgical errors during operations, cases involving the failure to manage a pregnancy properly or deliver a baby safely, cases involving the failure to administer anesthesia properly, and cases involving medication errors. These cases are both labor and cost intensive, so they must be handled by attorneys with the experience and resources required to pursue them successfully. Likewise, proving negligence against drug manufacturers or medical product manufacturers requires experience in areas involving medicine, science, and engineering. Therefore, you need attorneys with adequate experience and resources to secure the services of expert witnesses in each of these highly technical areas. Whether you need a medical malpractice attorney or a defective medical product attorney in Savannah, call the Suthers Law Firm at 800.320.2384 for a free consultation.
