What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice happens when a healthcare provider fails to provide treatment that is considered “acceptable,” which leads to the injury or death of the patient. By law, you’re entitled to receive fair and quality treatment, and if the treatment you received was below an acceptable standard of care you may be entitled to file for damages.

Potential medical malpractice cases may involve:

  • birth injuries,
  • misdiagnoses,
  • prescription drug errors,
  • surgical errors,
  • and more.

If you’ve suffered from any of these experiences or other types of medical negligence, the North Carolina medical malpractice lawyers at Henson Fuerst may be able to help. Call us today at (919) 781-1107 or complete a free initial consultation form.
