Medical Malpractice Lawyers in North Carolina
Surgical, Anesthesia, and Emergency Room Errors: Winston-Salem Attorneys
When you put your life or the life of a loved one in the hands of medical professionals, you rely on them to adhere to their high professional standard of care. Medical malpractice lawsuits can do more than obtain compensation for victims of hospital and doctor errors. The claims often result in improved practices that prevent future errors.
Usually insurance companies, not doctors, pay medical negligence claims. However, it is difficult for an ill or grieving victim to assemble evidence and present a strong case demonstrating the error and the cost of the loss. At Comerford & Britt, we have the experience and the resources to successfully handle claims for serious injuries or wrongful death resulting from medical malpractice.
If you feel that the permanent disability or death of someone you care about may have been due to medical negligence, contact our Winston-Salem lawyers and ask for a case evaluation.
