Our medical malpractice attorneys have secured significant verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients across North Carolina. We have been involved in a full spectrum of cases in which medical negligence resulted in serious injury or wrongful death:

  • Emergency room errors
  • A fire in the operating room
  • A patient who suffered a stroke after being released prematurely
  • Surgical errors

Proving Medical Malpractice

A malpractice lawsuit must show that the provider deviated from accepted medical standards and that the negligence caused injury to the patient. In building a solid case for damages, Patterson Harkavy LLP relies on respected medical experts to examine the records and determine whether the standard of care was breached.

Because of the high stakes, doctors and their insurance companies are often reluctant to settle out of court. Our veteran trial lawyers understand the medical issues and are prepared to bring the case to trial when full-scale litigation is required. Our experience, record, and commitment has resulted in fair settlements for many victims of medical negligence.
