Medical Malpractice

Attorney Jon R. Hawk helps those injured by medical professionals

When we receive medical treatment, we expect the people who treat us to help us get better. But just as in any other field, at times there are medical professionals who are negligent. And this negligence leaves people seriously ill or injured. Macon medical malpractice attorney Jon R. Hawk helps patients who have been harmed.

Medical malpractice describes mistakes made by a medical professional that results in the injury or death of a patient. These mistakes could include reckless actions or a failure to act.

Examples of medical malpractice include birth injuries, surgical errors, hospital injuries, misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose. Jon R. Hawk, Sr., LLC holds negligent medical professionals accountable. These may include:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Physician assistants
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Pharmacists
  • Orderlies

Medical malpractice can turn your life upside down. Your existing illness can get worse. A new injury can add to your health problems. Your medical expenses just keep adding up, and you may lose income because you are not able to work. Jon fights to get you the compensation you deserve so you can focus on recovering as much as possible.

Representation that gets results

It can be difficult to prove that medical malpractice was responsible for your personal injury. It must be shown that the medical professional’s action or inaction violated accepted standard medical practices. That’s why Jon and his legal team conduct an investigation into what happened. We know where to look for evidence of negligence. We thoroughly review all documentation, interview witnesses and consult medical experts.

We do this so we can build a strong case that proves negligence caused your injury, or your illness to get worse. Medical professionals and insurance companies typically deny any responsibility. But insurance companies are more likely to negotiate a settlement that meets your needs when they see we have built a strong case. And if they won’t negotiate, Jon will take them to court, where he is known for his litigation skills.

Jon will determine the total damages you’ve suffered and will fight to get you the compensation you need. This can include compensation for past and future medical expenses and lost income if you can’t work, as well as further compensation for any disability or disfigurement, emotional distress and pain and suffering.
