Medical Malpractice Claims are Serious
It’s not uncommon for someone to have an uncomfortable experience when dealing with medical professionals. As they take care of your health, it requires a significant amount of up close and personal time. Maybe you’ve had a conversation that felt off or a procedure that took longer than expected to heal - both of which, while uncomfortable, may not automatically result in you wanting to pursue legal action.
However, there are some instances in which your experience with a medical professional takes a potentially dangerous turn and you may be wondering if others share your experience. As many states have records of disciplinary action for medical malpractice claims available for patients to view, you might choose to do some research into your caregiver.
Researching Medical Malpractice Claims
The North Carolina Medical Board (NCMB) maintains a record of many medical licenses within the state - covering physicians, corporations, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and others in the healthcare industry - that is available for public research.
Although this database is intended for research purposes only, it contains information on the training, renewal date of license, and any public (including disciplinary) action taken by the NCMB. The individual licensee report will also show any payments that the specific provider made from a malpractice or professional liability claim over $75,000.
