Professional and Medical Malpractice

The Firm is well known for its expertise in the area of medical, legal and other professional negligence claims. John Ferrelle has filed, settled and tried malpractice cases throughout southeast Georgia extensively since 1975. Many cases involve negligence on the part of medical professionals. Under Georgia’s and Florida’s medical malpractice laws, a physician, nurse or other health care provider is required to exercise care and skill in taking care of and treating patients. If a patient is injured or dies because a doctor, nurse or health care provider did not exercise the proper degree of care, a claim for damages or wrongful death may exist. Because medical malpractice cases can be difficult to prove without the right experts and knowledge of the law, this highly specialized area of practice requiring substantial experience and resources.

John has worked closely with some of the most well respected malpractice experts in the country, and has been successful in recovering millions of dollars for physician, nursing and hospital malpractice. He is routinely associated by other attorneys to handle their malpractice/personal injury cases and for advice on local judges and juries. He also has been consistently rated by independent peer review at the highest level in malpractice work, both for legal ability and ethics, by the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers.

If you or a loved one has suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of medical negligence, or suffered damages as a result of legal malpractice or other professional negligence, please contact our Firm. We will be happy to speak with you without charge to determine whether you have a claim.
