Medical Malpractice Attorney in Greensboro, NC

Are you a victim of a negligent medical professional?

Hospitals are large facilities housing many doctors, nurses, assistants, specialists, residents and interns. At times, hospitals and medical centers can become very busy and life and death situations occur whereby the medical professional has to make split second decision to save someone’s life.

For the most part these decisions are made correctly and the patient improves and recovers. However, there are times that the medical professional is tired or has so many emergencies as in the ER, that they make an error or mistake. This could be anything from mistreating or misdiagnosing to mixing up the records for patients or even the patients themselves. The records at the end of each bed can become mixed up and/or the wrong procedure or medication can be given to the wrong patient.

When it comes to operating rooms, there have been times where the wrong procedure was performed, or it wasn’t performed according to basic standards or an instrument was left in the patient. It can even happen where the wrong organ is removed or even a blood vessel is nicked when closing the patient and internal bleeding starts. There are many things that can happen which can be classified under negligence or medical malpractice.

Where Does Medical Malpractice Occur?

Medical malpractice can occur outside of hospital settings as well, including:

  • Doctor's offices
  • Clinics
  • Outpatient environments

No matter what the reason is for the medical negligence, it is very possible that the patient is going to either have an adverse affect as a result of the mistake or will suffer additional injuries such as brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries or even wrongful death. A medical professional, whether a doctor, specialist or nurse, all have a responsibility to perform their duties with the utmost care for the patient. They also have a code of medical ethics they must abide by.

If you suspect that you, a relative or someone you know has experienced some type of medical malpractice, then contact a personal injury attorney right away. It is very important that the situation be reviewed and any interviews or inspections take place as soon after the incident occurred as possible in order to put together the most effective case. With a strong trial attorney such as James Roane, you increase your chances of a successful outcome.

Do you have a medical malpractice claim?

For a proper disclaimer, please know that Roane Law will not take the vast majority of medical malpractice claims. We receive many such cases every week for review. While many have merit, we really only want to take the most extremely negligent cases. We don't want to second guess doctors. Most doctors and hospitals work very hard and provide excellent care. Hindsight is 20/20 and we don't want to blame someone for an honest mistake. Therefore, we are very picky about these cases. We only want to pursue cases that show blatant disregard for the safety of patients and very significant injuries resulting from such behavior. If you think that this has happened to you, then give us a call. We can handle cases across Burlington, Winston-Salem, and surrounding regions.
