From Scott McMillen Malpractice Specialist

The Georgia Medical Malpractice Website provides information to consumers about Georgia medical malpractice laws.  If you want to know if you have a good case, use the link on the left for “DO I HAVE A GOOD CASE?” (this is a free online consultation).   You can also call us toll free from anywhere at 800-974-4929.

Before you hire a lawyer, get some facts by reviewing our pages on “MALPRACTICE ANSWERS“.  There you can learn things like, how long is the statute of limitations, whether there are caps on damages, and how to look up your doctor.  


Scott McMillen is Senior Counsel to the law firm of Paul Knopf Bigger, PLLC.  Because we accept Georgia medical malpractice cases, Mr. McMillen maintains small satellite offices in Atlanta, Savannah, and Augusta, and will be opening similar offices in Macon and Columbus soon.  These offices are available for client meetings, for depositions, and for “trial bases” when we are in trial.  These offices are executive suites not staffed by attorneys full-time, so we are unable to accept “walk-in” requests for consultations.  We also have similar satellite offices throughout Florida, and have fully supported main offices in Central Florida, with our primary office addresses being 1560 N. Orange Ave, Suite 300, Winter Park, FL 32789; 622 East Washington Street, Suite 200, Orlando, FL 32801; and 511 West Bay Street, Suite 450, Tampa, FL 33606.

If advantageous to your case, with your permission, we will sometimes work with other medical malpractice law firms in certain locations in Georgia to serve you better – but it will  only be done in a way that does not cause any additional attorneys’ fees or expenses to you.

These are some of the verdicts and settlements obtained by Mr. McMillen or other skilled trial lawyers in our firm.  Of course, every case is unique and your case could achieve a lower or a higher result.
