You Deserve The Right Care From Doctors
No one wants to rely on the care of a medical professional for his or her life but it is often necessary. Most parents welcome their children to the world in the safety of hospital wards, and people who have experienced injury or illnesses rely on medical care to recover properly and promptly.
The responsibility that doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other licensed health care providers have to their patients cannot be understated. So, in the rare occasions that they fail to act responsibly, it is necessary to hold them accountable through a malpractice lawsuit.
A Lawsuit Can Help You Through Long-Term Injuries
Severe injury or failure to properly diagnose a condition may have chronic or permanent consequences to patients. Medical costs can spiral out of control while individuals’ and families’ abilities to earn income falter.
The law firm of George Collins, P.A., is dedicated to helping the victims of medical malpractice. Our attorneys work with victims and their families to make sure they understand their rights for establishing a claim, make their claims in a timely manner and receive the compensation they deserve from the liable parties. North Carolina law limits several types of personal injury claims, including medical malpractice, so it is important to file the appropriate claims as soon as possible after a problem has occurred or been discovered.
Compensation for medical malpractice may extend into the future to cover chronic consequences caused by an injury, illness or misdiagnosis. This may include the continued loss of income that working victims may experience.
Was Your Child The Victim Of A Birth Injury?
One of the most tragic forms of medical malpractice is when a new life suffers due to the negligence of a health care professional. Inattention to the needs of newborns during and after birth can have life-long consequences for the child and its family. Our lawyers have experience representing parents of children who have suffered birth injuries due to a doctor’s negligence.
