North Carolina Medical Malpractice Actions
If you have suffered serious personal injuries as a result of a significant medical mistake, Howard Law may be able to help you obtain compensation for your injuries and damages. All medical providers, including doctors, surgeons, nurses, and paramedics, among others, are required to adhere to certain standards of care in rendering medical treatment. When those standards are not followed, the consequences can be devastating.
As a result of legislative action in North Carolina, medical malpractice actions cannot be filed without a certification of negligence from a qualified expert. In addition, the damages that can be recovered in a medical malpractice suit are subject to certain statutory caps. Nonetheless, you may have a right to recover damages, including:
- Past medical expenses
- Future medical expenses
- Lost past and future income
- Pain and suffering; and
- Loss of the care and companionship of a loved one
