Asheville Medical Malpractice Attorney - Carole A Gardiner P.A.

WHAT IS MEDICAL MALPRACTICE AND WHAT KINDS OF CASES
USUALLY CONSTITUTE MEDICAL MALPRACTICE?


Medical malpractice is the same thing as medical negligence. When a "health care provider" is negligent in caring for a patient, that is called medical malpractice. In order for the health care provider to commit medical malpractice or negligence, he or she is said to have "departed from the standard of care." Generally, the standard of care and the departure from the same is testified to by the expert witness selected by the attorney. Thus, the expert witness selected by your attorney is of extreme importance in winning a medical malpractice case.

The following are the types of malpractice cases that Carole Gardiner has handled in North Carolina over the last 10 years.

FAILURE TO DIAGNOSE, OR MISDIAGNOSIS OF CANCER

The sooner a diagnosis of cancer is made, the better chance you have of a complete recovery. Carole Gardiner has handled many cases where the doctor should have recognized cancer and his or her failure to do so led to decreased life expectancy.


SURGICAL ERRORS

Carole Gardiner has handled cases where surgeons have made unnecessary cuts or transections. This happens often in laparoscopic surgeries.


WRONGFUL DEATH

Did a loved one die because of the negligent actions of a health care provider? Carole Gardiner can help you.


EMERGENCY ROOM ERRORS

Did an emergency room not treat you, or did they treat you incorrectly?


PRESCRIPTION ERRORS AND OVERDOSES

Have doctors, nurses or anesthesiologists given you too much medicine, causing you to overdose or a loved one to die?


FAILURE TO TRANSFER TO A LARGE HOSPITAL

Many of North Carolina's small community hospitals do not have the same specialists that are generally located in bigger cities like Charlotte, Raleigh, Winston-Salem, or Chapel Hill. Many surgeons do not transfer patients to such hospitals when it becomes apparent that the patient's needs are beyond their ability. Failure to transfer under certain circumstances can be considered medical malpractice.


FAILURE TO MONITOR A PATIENT

Have you or a loved one been in a hospital where a nurse or hospital employee did not properly monitor you so that you sustained injury because they were not there?


BIRTH INJURIES

Was the delivery of your baby not treated within the standard of care, causing severe permanent injuries to your child?


NURSING HOME

Did you or a loved one not get the standard of care treatment in a nursing home, resulting in damages or death?
