Medical Negligence

Taking a Stand Against Medical Negligence

Healthcare providers, such as doctors, nurses and hospitals, have the duty to treat each patient with the appropriate standard of care. When they fail to do so, the result can be devastating for patients. If you or someone you love has been injured due to hospital malpractice, doctor error or physician error a skilled lawyer can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

I am Garry Whitaker. At Garry Whitaker Law, P.C. in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, I have represented clients injured by medical negligence for over 25 years.

Do You Have a Medical Negligence Case?

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, institution or other healthcare professional fails to follow the standard of care you are entitled to as a patient, causing a patient to suffer injury, sickness or even death.

What Are Some Examples of Medical Negligence Injuries?

There are several reasons people file medical negligence claims, including:

  • Failure to diagnose a condition
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Surgical error
  • Administration of incorrect medication
  • Birth injury

Do You Need a Medical Negligence Attorney?

Medical negligence claims can be complicated. They require expert testimony to establish negligence and offer opinions regarding the appropriate care for the injured patient. Importantly, time limitations govern the filing of these claims making early action on the part of the patient critical.

If you have sustained a serious injury, an experienced attorney can help you decide if you have the basis for a medical negligence claim.
