Georgia Law Firm for Hospital and Doctor Malpractice Lawsuits
Medical Malpractice Attorney Handling Cases Involving Potentially Life-Changing and Devastating Injuries
Medical malpractice can forever change your life. These medical errors – such as medication errors, surgical errors, misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis, failure to diagnose cancer, birth injuries and more – can have devastating consequences on your health and the lives of loved ones.
If you or your relative was hurt because of a doctor’s negligence or the negligence of another medical professional, then you are going to need an experienced, aggressive attorney on your side. Doctors will not admit medical mistakes; their employers, hospitals and insurance companies purposefully and actively prevent them from admitting errors to patients.
At the McArthur Law Firm, we fight for you. Our medical negligence lawyers do not give up when our client has suffered due to medical malpractice. The attorney fees in medical malpractice lawsuits are basically the same for personal injury lawyers throughout Georgia, so you should choose a firm with a proven record of obtaining substantial results for clients.

- $1.9 million medical malpractice settlement in 2010
- $2.1 million medical malpractice settlement in 2009
- $2.4 million medical malpractice settlement in 2009

Handling Medical Malpractice Cases with an Inside Understanding and Appreciation of the Medical Profession
Medical malpractice attorney Kathy McArthur, founder of the McArthur Law Firm, has a deep respect for the medical profession. Kathy McArthur’s husband, Dr. Waldo Floyd III, is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in hand operations, and the couple has a son currently in medical school. Kathy McArthur respects the work doctors do, but she takes these cases very seriously and devotes a substantial percentage of her practice to medical malpractice lawsuits.
Our firm has seen the unfortunate results of medical malpractice, and we fight aggressively for clients. Substandard medical care is not acceptable. Our attorneys refuse to let neglectful healthcare providers continue to harm patients.
McArthur Law Firm Gets Results for Clients’ Medical Malpractice Cases
In one case involving a fatal botched allergy shot, our lawyers’ actions helped change a local procedure involving doctors being present during treatment. Several years ago, a man brought his teenage daughter to a Georgia clinic that administered allergy shots. After a nurse gave the teen an allergy shot, the girl had a severe reaction. Unfortunately, the nurse did not know what to do in response and a doctor was not present. The teen died at the clinic as a result. The sad fact of the matter is a doctor would have been able to save her. The outcome of the case had a large impact in our community. Now, the procedure is done only when a doctor is physically present in the clinic. This will undoubtedly help prevent future tragedies.
In another medical malpractice case we handled, a woman went in for surgery due to serious pain she was suffering. Following the surgery, the medicine prescribed was not helping. She called the doctor’s office, but she was dismissed. The doctor believed she was merely complaining of minor discomfort. The woman’s pain became unbearable, so she checked in to an emergency room. It was there where the ER doctor discovered she had punctured intestines from the surgery and was suffering from widespread infection and peritonitis. She would have died had the ER doctor not intervened.
