Legal Options for Medical Malpractice Victims In North Carolina

When a health care provider or medical practitioner fails to provide proper and adequate care to a patient that results in injury, it is medical malpractice. It is impossible for any healthcare provider to be perfect, and hospitals, nursing staff, surgeons, and physicians can all make mistakes – and these mistakes can be tragic for a patient. Medical malpractice attorneys may be able to help you file a lawsuit to recover damages resulting from hospital, nurse or healthcare provider mistakes or negligence caused injuries – compensation which could make a world of difference in your life.


The act of neglect and omission of care can include instances where there is no diagnosis of an existing condition, a misdiagnosis of a condition, or a negligent disregard of standard procedures in treatment. In addition, this includes improper or unnecessary surgery, hospital errors, medication dosage errors, harmful side effects of medications, and much more. With experience handling these cases, a medical malpractice law firm becomes familiar with the errors and the terrible impact they have on the surviving family members and victims.

The term “medical malpractice” includes not only the actions of physicians, but also the actions of all other healthcare professionals, such as nurses, other medical staff members, and other healthcare professionals who may have been involved in providing care. When they let you down, it can cost you dearly.

Even though a malpractice lawsuit can’t undo what happened, it can hold the defendants accountable.

Medical Malpractice Is A Life Changing Event.

It’s important that you know and understand all your options. Having an experienced injury attorney can make all the difference in the world.  Below are few questions that are often asked.

What are some common examples of medical malpractice?

A common type of malpractice is misdiagnosis. This occurs when a doctor diagnoses a patient with the incorrect illness or doesn’t diagnose them as promptly as a competent doctor would. It is also possible for malpractice to occur during surgery. Errors in surgical procedures include that surgeons may operate on the wrong part of the body or the wrong patient, leave foreign objects inside the patient, lacerate or perforate surrounding organs, or administer or monitor anesthesia improperly. Malpractice can also take place when a doctor prescribes the wrong medication to a patient, or when a nurse provides them with the wrong medication or dose of a medication. Birth injuries, which affect a newborn or a fetus, are among the most tragic malpractice cases. The child may have to cope with the effects of the malpractice for the rest of their lives.

What is the statute of limitations in a medical malpractice case?

In a medical malpractice case, the statute of limitations defines the time period during which a patient may file a claim. In general, it begins running when the incident occurs, but may be extended if the patient is receiving treatment from the same provider. The discovery rule may also extend the statute of limitations. An example is when a patient did not have the chance to discover malpractice when it first occurred. Lastly, victims of birth injuries may benefit from a longer statute of limitations, which could even extend until the age of 18.

Whom can I sue in a medical malpractice claim?

If an individual commits malpractice, you may sue them. Usually, the defendant is a doctor, but sometimes a patient will sue a nurse, an anesthesiologist, or another hospital employee. If it is not immediately obvious who is to blame, they may sue several different people who may have contributed to the error. A patient might also be able to sue the hospital or other entity that employed the person who committed malpractice. They would need to demonstrate that the employee was acting within the scope of their job duties when the malpractice occurred. As most doctors are not employed by hospitals, a patient cannot sue the hospital for malpractice committed by the doctor. A patient can, however, include the hospital in a lawsuit in certain circumstances.

Whom can I sue if a nurse gave me the wrong medication?

It is possible to sue the individual nurse if their medication error fell below the standard of care that a competent nurse would have provided. Furthermore, you may have grounds to sue the hospital that employed the nYou would need to prove that the nurse was acting within the scope of her employment and that she wasn’t supervised by an independent doctor (a doctor who wasn’t an employee of the hospital).oyee). You may still be able to sue the hospital if they were supervised by a hospital employee.

How much is my medical malpractice case worth?

A combination of objective and subjective factors will determine this. The most common type of damages in medical malpractice cases are compensatory damages, which means that they are designed to compensate the patient for the financial, physical, and emotional effects of the malpractice. Special damages (also known as economic damages) include items such as medical expenses, lost income, and future treatment costs. Non-economic damages (also called general damages) cover the patient’s subjective pain and suffering, as well as other types of harm that are difficult to quantify. A person who has suffered permanent disability or loss of function is likely to receive a higher award of damages. Punitive damages may also be available to a patient who can prove that the defendant acted intentionally or in another egregious manner.

Can I sue if my doctor did not tell me about the risks of a procedure?

Maybe, but not necessarily. Patients should be informed about any significant risks involved in a procedure, but doctors do not need to mention every possible risk. If a patient is not informed about a significant risk, he or she may be liable under the theory that they did not give informed consent. If a doctor doesn’t have time to obtain informed consent in an emergency situation, this rule doesn’t apply. An individual bringing a claim based on a lack of informed consent must show that a competent doctor would have disclosed the risks, or that a reasonable person would have made a different decision if they knew about the risks.

 Is it Beneficial To Hire a Medical Malpractice Lawyer?

A Few Benefits From Hiring Medical Malpractice Attorney :

  • Knowing the Possible Award for Your Claim
  • Communicating with the Insurance Companies
  • Negotiating the Best Settlement in Your Case
  • Accelerating Your Claim Process

If you still do not wish to file a lawsuit, our railroad injury attorneys can help you determine whether you are eligible for an out-of-court settlement from the asbestos companies that caused your cancer.

Should You Hire a Medical Malpractice Attorney?

If you or someone you love has been injured by medical malpractice, you should hire a lawyer. With a medical malpractice attorney on your side, you have someone who has your back. If you have been injured, you should contact a lawyer immediately. Keep in mind that if the statute of limitations deadline passes, your cause of action may be lost. In states such as North Carolina, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice is two years since the treatment or breach. Gather all evidence, including medical orders and records, before contacting your lawyer. You will need this information to narrow down your cause of action and potential payout. Attorneys who care about their clients’ cases will take the time to explain the possibilities.

Although no amount of money can make things right, the money from a lawsuit may be able to provide your family with medical insurance and help support your loved ones during a difficult time.
