Medical Malpractice Attorneys

When you are sick, injured, or need help controlling a chronic illness, you depend on the competence and compassion of healthcare workers to provide the care you need. Unfortunately, mistakes caused by distraction, negligence, and arrogance are all to common, and often lead to serious injuries and long-term suffering.

If you are a victim of medical negligence, you need legal representation you can rely on to advocate on your behalf and fight to get justice. WIth over six decades of combined experience, the medical malpractice lawyers at Van Camp, Meacham & Newman are on your side to help you secure the monetary damages you deserve.

Understanding Medical Negligence in North Carolina

Medical malpractice is a very complicated legal claim and can be difficult to prove. In the event your case goes before a jury, you will need to establish four criteria in order for the jury to award damages in your favor.

Provider-Patient Relationship

The first criteria is to show you had a formal medical relationship with your provider. This means that you were actively under their care, such as a pharmacist filling your prescription, a nurse providing care at a hospital, or an emergency room doctor assigned to your case. Typically, medical records will demonstrate an existing provider-patient relationship.

You must prove that the medical provider made an error or was negligent in a way that a competent colleague in similar circumstances would not have been, and thus they deviated from proper standard of care.

Once medical negligence has been shown, you have to prove that it was the cause of serious illness or injury and they caused you harm that would have been prevented had they provided proper care.

Finally, once it has been established that the healthcare provider assigned to your case acted negligently, causing you to experience significant illness or injury, the final criteria is that you sustained specific losses. This can include:

  • Additional medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Physical pain
  • Mental anguish and trauma

Choosing the Right Medical Malpractice Lawyer for Your Case

If you received improper care or experienced significant injury due to medical negligence, you need an experienced medical malpractice lawyer on your side to help you secure the compensation you deserve. While all personal injury claims are complicated, malpractice is particularly challenging.

Healthcare facilities and hospitals are often represented by aggressive attorneys and insurance companies who are seeking to minimize payouts and protect their reputation. Thus, they will often do everything they can to deny your claim or minimize your suffering. Having a legal advocate who will stand up for you and represent your best interests is essential to having a more favorable outcome in your case.
