The top two reasons to pursue a suit in North Carolina (NC) for medical malpractice are compensation for your serious injury caused by a negligent doctor or hospital in North Carolina, as well as preventing future injuries to other patients. There often are good reasons to contact an injury lawyer if you or a family member was harmed by a doctor in North Carolina, Virginia, or anywhere else. As veteran personal injury lawyer Jim Lewis explains in an item posted on our firm’s Northeast North Carolina InjuryBoard website, there are many different kinds of medical negligence cases, including ones where the error was made by healthcare providers such as nurses, hospitals, physicians’ assistants (P.A.’s), or nursing home staff members. A common aspect in all medical malpractice cases in North Carolina is that the lawyer must prove that the medical provider did something wrong that no reasonable doctor or hospital should have done under the circumstances. By calling an experienced plaintiff’s attorney, you can find out what your rights are without any obligation. You may end up finding a way to help your family financially for the wrong that was done in the healthcare system and help improve that system by forcing the doctor or hospital to do a better job with the next patient in those circumstances, rather than causing someone else to have a serious injury or death at the hands of professionals who are supposed to be making them better.
