North Carolina defines medical malpractice as a breach of the standard of care required by a medical professional during the course of treatment. Unfortunately, when a medical professional makes a mistake the consequences can be life threatening. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed by a doctor’s negligence you will be confronted with the decision of dealing directly with the other side’s insurance company or hiring a lawyer to handle the case.
The decision to hire a Charlotte Medical Malpractice attorney to represent your interests usually turns on a number of factors, including the severity of the injury, circumstances surrounding the injury, the desire or lack there of to deal with the insurance company, and the prior experiences of the injured party or family.
Unlike many other forms of civil litigation in North Carolina, Plaintiff’s are required when filing suit to show that the medical care has been reviewed by a medical expert, who can be qualified as such pursuant to Rule 702 of the North Carolina Rules of Evidence, and said expert is willing to testify that the medical care did not comply with the applicable standard of care. When clients meet with one of our Charlotte medical malpractice lawyers we will have their records reviewed by one of our experienced medical professionals in helping to determine if indeed there has been a breach of the standard of care. It is for this reason that our attorneys strongly recommend that individuals do not speak with the insurance company or medical provider without first seeking the counsel of an experienced Charlotte medical malpractice attorney.
Regardless, the decision to hire a Charlotte Medical Malpractice lawyer is personal to the injured party and their family. This is especially difficult in the context of medical malpractice because of the relationship and trust between doctor and patient. If you have decided to hire a medical malpractice attorney remember you are not only hiring an individual you are hiring their reputation. This makes a very important difference because insurance companies and defense lawyers factor in the competency and success rate of the Plaintiff’s lawyer when making offers to settle a case. If a lawyer has a reputation that he or she is willing to settle every case, regardless of trial potential, the offer to settle that case will be significantly less then a lawyer who is willing and able to try and win the case. Our second largest source for new clients, second only to prior client referrals are other lawyers who practice NC personal injury law. This is because of our history and reputation as medical malpractice trial lawyers who work for the best results for our clients.
When calling to speak with a Charlotte medical malpractice lawyer at Rosensteel Fleishman, PLLC you will be connected directly to an attorney who can answer all of your questions regarding you or your loved ones case. Unlike many firms we do not accept every individual as a client of the firm. Typically the reason we decide not to take on a new client is when we determine that it is not in the best financial interest of the individual to hire a lawyer. In those situations we will let the individual know his or her options including hiring another lawyer to handle their matter.
