North Carolina Surgical Errors and Medical Negligence Attorney
Have you gone to a doctor for treatment of a medical condition, only to be burdened with an additional injury or illness? You may have been the victim of medical malpractice. When medical professionals make mistakes, they leave patients in a state of crisis: physical pain, medical bills, lost wages and more. With the help of an experienced attorney, you may be able to pursue compensation for your losses.
Medical malpractice cases are complex. It is important to choose a lawyer with significant experience in this area of law. Rebecca Britton has over 20 years of experience with medical malpractice cases. In addition, before law school she worked as a paralegal in a malpractice defense firm and worked in a hospital emergency room, so she has added insight and perspective from those experiences. For a free consultation with a Fayetteville medical malpractice attorney, please call Britton Law, P.A., at 910-401-3356 or contact us online.
When is a Medical Malpractice Claim Appropriate?
Just because a medical provider (doctor, nurse or other health care professional) made a mistake does not automatically mean that a claim can be filed. Claims cannot be filed because a patient was unhappy with the result or feels that he or she was mistreated by a medical provider. A medical malpractice claim can only be filed if the medical professional's negligence resulted in permanent or significant physical harm.
Common malpractice incidents include:
- Birth injuries
- Surgery errors
- Failure to diagnose a serious medical condition
- Anesthesia errors
- Radiology errors
- Nurse mistakes
- Hospital mistakes
- Failure to monitor patients after surgery (failure to rescue)
- Failure to refer
- Medication errors
We work closely with medical experts to evaluate malpractice claims and provide testimony during malpractice cases.
