Charlotte Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Matthews Physician Error Attorneys

You expect your doctor and other medical professionals to help you do everything possible to protect your health. But if someone makes a mistake that worsens your condition or leads to new concerns, do not give up hope. At the law offices of Baucom, Claytor, Benton, Morgan and Wood, our Charlotte medical malpractice lawyers help victims get access to proper medical care and fair financial compensation.

Tough Legal Counsel for Tough Cases

Just because your physician made a mistake does not mean you have been the victim of medical malpractice. In order to have a medical malpractice claim, you have to show that the level of diagnosis or treatment was below the standard of care in your geographical region. We work with local doctors who will review your case and provide their expert opinion prior to initiating a lawsuit.

These are difficult cases, and most claims are limited to compensatory damages, which can include pain and suffering. Punitive damages are capped in North Carolina and very difficult to obtain. However, we will fully explore all of your recovery options and explain this to you in detail.

Our firm is prepared to handle a wide range of medical malpractice claims, including:

  • Surgical errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Prescription mistakes

If you have suffered a catastrophic personal injury as the result of physician negligence or a nursing error, we are ready to help you in your recovery. If you have lost a loved one because of a failure to diagnose a fatal disease, we can help your family through this difficult time.

As experienced litigators in North Carolina courts, our attorneys will work together to make sure your rights are protected. Contact our Charlotte offices today to schedule a consultation and learn more about what we can do for you.
