When you visit your doctor or go to the emergency room, you put immense trust in healthcare providers to properly diagnose your injury and provide the necessary treatment to make the best possible recovery.

Common types of medical malpractice cases our firm can handle include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose

  • Birth injuries
  • Surgery errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Pharmacy malpractice
  • Wrongful death

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.

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

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.
