  • What Is Medical Malpractice?

    Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional fails to meet the standard of care for a patient, and that patient is injured as a result. Generally speaking, meeting the standard of care is defined as performing the duties that most professionals in their position with their experience would perform under the same circumstances. For example, if a doctor fails to order a CT scan when one is clearly advisable, and a patient’s tumor isn’t diagnosed as a result, that could constitute malpractice.

    Malpractice isn’t always cut and dry. The best way to determine if it has occurred is to speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney.

  • What Are Some Examples of Medical Malpractice?

    A wide range of misguided medical diagnoses, treatments, and surgeries may qualify as malpractice. Here are some common examples:

    • Failed or delayed diagnosis
    • Surgical error (e.g., operating on the wrong organ or limb)
    • Incorrect dosage of a drug or anesthesia
    • Incorrect reading of an X-ray, ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI
    • Botched dental or orthodontic procedure
    • Use of a defective medical device
    • Misuse of a medical device
    • Emergency room error
    • Childbirth injuries
    • Failure to check or interpret a patient’s medical history
    • Any other form of medical negligence that causes harm
  • How Can a Lawyer Help?

    The first and most obvious way a lawyer can help is by determining if you have a medical malpractice case. If you do, they’ll then carry out an array of tasks to help you recover the compensation you deserve:

    • Gather evidence: An attorney will analyze medical records and other evidence to put together a strong, persuasive case that shows how the doctor or nurse breached their duty of care.
    • Enlist medical experts: In building and trying these cases, Morgan & Morgan collaborates with some of North Carolina’s most respected medical experts. Their testimony can make a huge difference at the negotiating table and/or at trial.
    • Negotiate on your behalf: Insurance companies rarely lead with a good-faith offer that actually covers all of your damages. Our firm’s track record of success gives us leverage at the negotiating table, which allows us to obtain better offers for our clients.
    • Present your case at trial (if necessary): If the insurance company won’t make a fair settlement offer, our attorneys will take them to trial and present your case before a jury. Have no fear: Our jury verdicts are often 20 times higher than the pre-trial offers.
  • What Kind of Compensation Is Available?

    People who have been injured by a medical professional’s negligence or incompetence are entitled to compensation that covers the costs (financial, physical, and emotional) that have incurred as a result of their injury. These damages may include the following:

    • Medical costs (e.g., hospital bills, treatment, medicine, rehab)
    • Lost wages and/or loss of earning capacity
    • Loss of life’s enjoyment (e.g., if you’re left with chronic pain or can no longer live life as fully as you did before)
    • Pain and suffering
    • Punitive damages (intended to punish the negligent party)
    • Funeral expenses (in the event of a loved one’s death)
  • How Do I Get Started?

    If you or a loved one were injured because of a doctor’s, nurse’s, or other medical professional’s negligence, you could be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages. Morgan & Morgan's medical malpractice attorneys specialize in these types of cases. We’re sympathetic, experienced, and we know how to win. Best of all, we work on contingency, which means we only get paid if we successfully resolve your case.
