Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Raleigh
Helping You Heal After a Severe Medical Injury
When you receive medical care, you are placing your trust, and often your life, in the hands of the healthcare professionals administering your treatment. You have a right to expect that these individuals will deliver high-quality care that adheres to rigorous standards established by the medical community. While this level of care is often provided, there are certain times when medical professionals act negligently or make a mistake that causes a serious injury.
If you’ve suffered an injury caused by medical negligence, you have certain rights and protections afforded by the law. You may be entitled to recover compensation for your damages in a medical malpractice case.

What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, hospital, or any other healthcare professional acts negligently, makes a mistake, or generally fails to meet the quality care criteria established by the medical profession.
