Charlotte Malpractice Lawyers

Malpractice is when a doctor or medical provider breaches or violates the accepted standard of care during your treatment.

Standard of care is defined as the generally accepted practices and procedures used by healthcare professionals in the same geographic area when caring for patients with certain conditions or diseases. The standard can change based on different conditions and other factors including age, sex and other accompanying medical issues.

Along with clear violations of the standard, the breach would also directly result in an injury. It will be up to you and your personal injury lawyer to prove in a courtroom that a medical professional was directly responsible for your injuries. In most cases, this requires a third party medical expert to testify in defense of your accusations.
