Raleigh Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Holding Doctors & Medical Facilities Accountable for Substandard Care

Medical professionals, from pediatricians to nurses to surgeons, have an obligation to provide standard care. They should take care to treat patients in accordance with their training and the tools at hand, in alignment with currently accepted standards. If they do not do so, and a patient is injured because of this, they can be held liable. These cases are referred to as medical malpractice lawsuits.

Our lawyers have been recognized as among the best possible allies for the individual entitled to compensation from a medical practice, healthcare corporation, or hospital.

  • Birth injuries, such as cerebral palsy and kernicterus

  • Hospital negligence
