Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim
If you have been injured by a medical professional, you may be wondering how you can take legal action. However, what you must realize before proceeding with your claim is that medical malpractice cases are very complex. Additionally, in order for your claim to be successful, you will need to prove medical negligence caused your injuries. To do this, will need to show the court that:
- There was a doctor/patient relationship
- The medical professional that treated you did not provide the acceptable standard of care that is expected by the medical community
- You suffered an injury as a direct result of the medical professional's negligence and deviation from the acceptable standard of care
As you can imagine, these case elements can be difficult to prove on your own. For this reason, you will want to secure representation from a North Carolina personal injury attorney that is experienced and knowledgeable in this unique area of law, like the attorneys at the Lanier Law Group, P.A.
