North Carolina Medical Malpractice Laws

Just because a patient was injured while under the care of healthcare providers doesn’t mean that he/she has grounds to pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit. There are certain elements a medical malpractice case must meet for a patient to recover monetary damages.

Medical malpractice plaintiffs have three years from the date of the injury or death to file a lawsuit in North Carolina. Although there is a cap on non-economic damages (e.g. pain and suffering), the cap doesn’t apply to cases involving severe disfigurement, permanent injury, as well as the defendant’s grossly negligent and reckless conduct.

The Elements of a Negligence Case

The following are the four elements that medical malpractice plaintiffs must prove in court:

  • The defendant (i.e. healthcare provider) owed a duty of care to the plaintiff
  • The defendant breached that duty by failing to provide that duty
  • The breach caused the plaintiff’s injury
  • The plaintiff suffered damages due to the defendant’s negligence
