Medical Malpractice

A Higher Standard of Care

Medical malpractice cases typically hinge on whether or not the doctor or health care provider deviated from the accepted medical “standard of care.” In real terms that means answering the question: Did they do something that similar doctors or health care providers would not have done under similar circumstances?

Although medical malpractice resulting in a permanent or fatal injury is rare in comparison to the number of times health care providers “get it right” each day — it does happen.

Unfortunately, industry lobbyists and insurers have made it very difficult for people who’ve been seriously harmed by a doctor’s mistake or surgeon’s error to recover what’s fair. In these cases, we can help.

What Can We Help You With?

James R. Van Camp, Michael J. Newman, and Thomas M. Van Camp represent people from the Pinehurst area, from North Carolina and from other states as well, with medical malpractice claims involving:

  • Failure to diagnose cancer (misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis)
  • Failure to treat a heart attack or stroke
  • Nursing medication errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Prescription errors
  • Surgical mistakes
  • Obstetric malpractice
  • Birth injuries
  • Hospital negligence
  • Lack of informed consent

Difference-Making Results

Success with anything in life rarely happens unless you prepare to be successful first.

In our experience, this means investing time, energy and resources during the unglamorous pre-litigation stages of the case — identifying appropriate medical experts, hiring forensic specialists, reviewing medical records, using technology to create state-of-the-art courtroom presentations or whatever else it takes to build a clear and compelling argument.
