Q: How can I find out if my doctor has had medical malpractice lawsuits filed against him or her?
Newnan medical malpractice lawyer Jason R. Schultz, P.C., wants to help you seek compensation for the injuries you have suffered if a doctor injured you. Medical malpractice lawsuits can be complicated, but you can take advantage of a free consultation to learn if it will be worth it.
Some state medical licensing boards do have records of doctors that have been named in medical malpractice lawsuits. But not all boards will release that information to the public.
The Georgia Composite Medical Board does not disclose investigations or complaints against doctors. State statutes prohibit this information from being shared with the public. However, information related to medical malpractice lawsuits sometimes can be found on the doctor’s profile.
The state medical board in Georgia provides an online form that can be filled out if you wish to look up a licensed provider, users can input:
- the doctor’s last name;
- license number;
- city; and
- type of provider.
At least one of these must be entered.
