Exceptional Experience In Medical Malpractice Cases
Attorney James H Webb, Jr., helps victims of medical malpractice get their lives back. With 45 years of experience and holding many professionals honors, such as being double board certified in both trial and pretrial advocacy from the National Board of Trial Advocates and the National Board of Civil Pretrial Advocacy, being awarded the distinguished Martindale-Hubbell AV* Peer rating, an award given for the highest standards in legal ability and ethics by the bar and judiciary, and being selected as a Super Lawyer for 17 years consecutively, Mr. Webb is an exceptional litigator and negotiator with a firm commitment to protecting his clients’ best interest.

Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ fall into two categories – legal ability and general ethical standards.
Specialized Counsel In Complex Cases
While often regarded as a rare occurrence, medical malpractice is a serious and common event throughout the health care industry. A recent study from a Johns Hopkins Research Team concluded that over 400,000 deaths per year were due to medical malpractice — easily placing it among the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s top five causes of death.
In a field as complex as medicine, it is not surprising that everyday medical errors can have catastrophic ramifications. It is also true that proving medical malpractice cases is extremely complex — demanding close attention to detail, investigative scrutiny of medical records and an unwavering commitment to a client’s best interests. At Webb Law LLC, I have the specialized knowledge, experience as a litigator, and strength as a negotiator to navigate complicated cases with confidence and clarity.
Medical records, which are often authored by the very doctors who are alleged to have committed malpractice, are commonly erroneous or lack relevant information. Many defendant physicians do not tell the truth about what caused their patient’s injuries. Other “expert witnesses” give untruthful testimony to try and protect their colleagues. It takes experience in exposing the truth for an attorney to succeed .
Successful Strategies That Meet Your Needs
As a litigator, I have won a substantial majority of my medical malpractice cases — a significant accomplishment in Georgia, where over 80% of juries rule in favor of medical defendants. However, law suits often take years to conclude, and satisfying a verdict and actually receiving the money often takes even longer. Staggering jury awards can look great on an attorney’s resume — but they may not help clients in need of rapid relief, particularly if their injury has left them unable to work or support their family, or facing further medical bills.
I think that the primary goal should be to find a reasonable solution to the situation without having to resort to a jury to render its opinion. I am not afraid to go to trial, but my goal is to get my client a fair settlement in a timely manner, not to take years while my client waits for a settlement check.
