What to consider before making a medical malpractice claim

Did you know that billions of dollars are paid out to recipients of medical malpractice claims each year? There is an alarming number of medical malpractice accusations in the United States. The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has even gone so far as to state that medical negligence is the third leading cause of death in the United States.

What must you prove in a wrongful death case?

If you lose a loved one due to someone’s negligence or wrongdoing, you likely can recover damages from the person at fault via a wrongful death suit. Keep in mind that in North Carolina, only the personal representative of the decedent’s estate can bring a wrongful death action. However, (s)he brings that action on behalf of the decedent’s estate and heirs; i.e, close family members. Consequently, if the decedent was your spouse, child, parent, etc., you likely can recover your damages.
