Charlotte Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Serving North Carolina Backed by 55+ Years of Experience

We place a huge amount of faith and trust in the medical professionals who provide us care. While everyone makes mistakes, our doctors and surgeons are held at the highest standard because the stakes are so high. When a doctor, nurse, surgeon, or other medical professional fails to perform their duties and their negligence harms or even kills a patient, it is known as medical malpractice.

If you are one of the many who have been injured by a negligent medical professional, it is of the utmost importance that you seek legal assistance at once. When this issue goes unaddressed for too long, there is the chance that this same practitioner could go on to harm others.

Call (704) 702-0024 now to share the details of what happened.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice in North Carolina?

After being injured by medical negligence, you or your loved ones only have a certain amount of time to file a claim. It's important to make sure that this claim is filed on time so that you are properly compensated for your injuries, otherwise you'll have no legal grounds to pursue compensation.

In general, a medical malpractice claim must be filed within three years of the date of the medical error.

However, certain circumstances may change this amount of time. For example, if the injury is not immediately apparent, and is discovered by the patient until two or more years from when the error was made, the patient has one year to file a lawsuit from the date of discovery.

In addition, if a foreign object is found inside a patient, such as a sponge or surgical instrument, the lawsuit must be filed one year from the date of discovery. This case must be filed within 10 years of the date that the surgical error was made.
