Most doctors, nurses, accountants, attorneys, architects, and other professionals represent their clients competently and ethically. However, there are some who lack the necessary experience to protect the interests of their patients, and there are others who take advantage of their clients. When these actions cause harm, a professional negligence claim can be filed on behalf of the injured against the at fault party.
At The Brogdon Firm, our professional negligence lawyer in Atlanta, Gino Brogdon, Jr., helps clients secure financial compensation for the damages caused by a doctor, dentist, attorney, or another party who committed malpractice. The Brogdon Firm will pursue the professional that caused injury to you and fight for your right to fair and just compensation.
Professional negligence or malpractice occurs when a trained professional performs their job duties in a manner that does not conform to how they were trained and, as a result, causes harm to another, usually physically and/or financially. Professional negligence can cause severe damages depending on the type of malpractice. The professionals who may be liable range from negligent doctors to lawyers. Professionals are held to a specific standard of care based on their area and type of practice, which gives individuals the right to sue if they have been injured due to professional negligence.
While professional malpractice can occur in a number of professionals, this page focuses on the two most common types of claims we receive—medical malpractice and legal malpractice.
Legal Malpractice in Georgia
If you were the victim of professional malpractice by a lawyer, you can hold your attorney responsible by filing a lawsuit. To prevail in court, it is necessary to show that the actions of your attorney changed the outcome of your case. There are a wide variety of situations that can be considered legal malpractice.
Some common examples of legal malpractice include:
- A lack of understanding of the law pertaining to a case
- Allowing the statute of limitations to pass
- Ethics violations
- Failing to follow the client’s instructions or wishes
- Failing to meet the obligations of the contract
- Inaccurate representation
- Missing filing deadlines
Legal malpractice cases are complex and require an attorney with the right legal knowledge and experience. At The Brogdon Firm, we have represented numerous clients in legal malpractice cases, including extremely complicated cases.

Medical Malpractice in Georgia
Medical malpractice occurs when the actions of a medical processional deviate from the accepted standards of medical care, and the patient suffers injury. Medical malpractice cases can be complicated and require an experienced attorney. Our Atlanta professional negligence lawyer represents clients who suffered harm due to the negligent or careless actions of a medical professional.

Most states have a statute of limitations for filing injury claims, including medical malpractice. Georgia has a two-year statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims. This means that you must file your claim within two years of the date that the injury occurred. If you have not taken action by this time, you may forfeit your right to seek compensation for damages.
