Medical Malpractice Representation in North Carolina
Our medical malpractice lawyers in Raleigh, Fayetteville and Dunn handle all types of medical malpractice claims that arise when doctors and other healthcare professionals are careless.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
North Carolina is full of countless wonderful physicians and medical facilities, most of which are totally honest and dedicated to the good health and well-being of their patients. However, when doctors are careless and someone is injured or killed as a result of that carelessness, doctors should be accountable for their actions and mistakes the same as a person in any other field. Out of all the medical malpractice situations that occur each year, only an average of 2% are ever filed as insurance claims--and most of the physicians involved in these cases are never even disciplined.
North Carolina medical malpractice lawyer Brent Adams wrote The Truth About Medical Malpractice Claims, a book that explains exactly how laws affect victims of negligence in healthcare. The book is free to anyone who has been injured due to medical malpractice.
Medical Malpractice Claims
Each year in the United States, an average of 80,000 people die as the result or partial result of some kind of medical malpractice. One study regarding health care quality looked at a variety of different autopsy results and found that an astonishing 40% of medical deaths are the result of a misdiagnosis, with most ultimately resulting in death. Plus, in nearly one in three surgeries, surgical sponges are left behind inside the patient. These kinds of statistics are simply unacceptable.
The important thing for people to know is that they have rights when it comes to the kind of medical care they receive. If they have not been given the kind of medical care they deserved, or worse, were permanently injured as the result of a doctor's negligence, our Raleigh medical malpractice attorneys can help.
Our lawyers work hard every day fighting for the rights of the people. At Brent Adams & Associates we are proud to offer North Carolina a team of highly experienced medical malpractice lawyers. We are here to serve you, and get you the compensation you deserve.
The law is intended to serve all people equally. However, unless ordinary people who are victims of medical malpractice are represented by competent lawyers who have the resources and ability to employ the necessary experts and technology to properly and aggressively process a claim or lawsuit, ordinary people will not be on an equal footing with medical doctors. That is why our team of North Carolina medical malpractice lawyers is dedicated to providing ordinary people with representation that puts them on an equal footing with doctors and hospitals.
It is important that you know and understand all of your rights when it comes to filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, as well as understanding the differences between the countless medical malpractice lawyers North Carolina has to offer. At Brent Adams & Associates we understand that each separate medical malpractice case is different and may require the application of a variety of different laws and regulations, depending on the specific details of your individual case.
For this reason, your initial consultation with us is absolutely free. After reviewing the details of your case with us, you can then make the informed decision of whether or not you wish to proceed with your claim.
