What is Considered Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is when a medical provider, like a doctor or nurse, or hospital fails to provide proper treatment for a patient that results in the patient suffering serious injury, illness, or even death. Examples of medical malpractice can include:

  • An error when administering anesthesia
  • A mistake in childbirth that injures the newborn or the mother
  • A prescription error
  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis

Proving medical malpractice can be a challenge and four legal elements need to be met. The elements are; duty of care, dereliction of duty, direct cause, and damages. North Carolina has a statute of limitations for when a claim can be filed, which is three years from the date when the malpractice that caused the injury occurred or one year after the date when the error was discovered.

Skilled in a Wide Range of Medical Negligence Claims

At Daniel, Holoman & Associates LLP, we focus almost exclusively on medical malpractice claims. We encourage you to reach out to our experienced attorneys if you or your family has been impacted by any form of medical negligence.

We handle a variety of different claims, including:

  • Surgical errors: When a person undergoes surgery, they are literally putting their life in the hands of another. The tiniest error can have huge ramifications, including serious injuries like spinal injuries or brain injuries. We hold surgical professionals accountable when their negligence results in serious harm.
  • Injuries from negligent obstetricians: When an OB-GYN is negligent, not only is the mother at risk, but so is her child. We have helped families recover large compensation awards when their lives have been impacted by obstetrician negligence.
  • Emergency room errors and hospital negligence: Staff in hospitals and emergency rooms have a standard duty of care to follow when treating patients. When they fail to provide this level of care and an injury occurs, we are there to stand up for the rights of the victims.
  • Common medical errors: Unfortunately, medical errors are common. Ill effects are rarely suffered, which is why these errors continue to be made time and time again. However, cutting corners and not following protocol can have disastrous consequences. If you or a loved one has been harmed by any type of error made by a medical professional, we are here to demand accountability.
