North Carolina Psychiatric Malpractice Attorneys
Patients suffering from mental illness often share the most intimate details of their lives with a therapist. When a crisis occurs, it’s only natural that a patient suffering from either a history of sexual abuse, depression, schizophrenia, or dependency, would turn to their psychiatrist out of a sense of trust and security. At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd, we relentlessly pursue psychiatrists who violate that trust and use their position of authority to take advantage of emotionally vulnerable patients. Additionally, when questionable therapeutic techniques are used or psycho-tropic drugs are prescribed that result in suicide or further harm, our investigators and medical experts expose malpractice and misconduct and demand financial compensation.
If your trust and confidence has been violated by a psychiatrist, contact North Carolina psychiatric malpractice attorneys at the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd today. Located in Fayetteville, we represent clients in Tennessee, Virginia, Georgia, and South Carolina.
When Trust is Violated by Psychiatrists
The personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd represent victims of psychiatric malpractice in the following kinds of cases:
- sexual misconduct
- harmful use of psycho-tropic drugs
- use of unproven, unorthodox therapeutic techniques
- emotional manipulation that results in isolating patients from family
- developing inappropriate personal relationship with patient outside of treatment
Building Convincing, Strong Psychiatric Malpractice Cases
For over 24 years, our medical malpractice lawyers have helped abused and manipulated psychiatric patients victimized by unscrupulous or negligent therapists. We understand the medical issues involved, having cultivated professional working relationships with nationally recognized psychiatric malpractice experts who testify on behalf of our clients when necessary.
Working with psychiatric malpractice experts, we exhaustively review patient records to identify departures from accepted professional protocols, misdiagnoses, the use of dangerous drug regimens, and manipulative behavior intended to take advantage of a patient. We not only demand financial damages, we are also prepared to contact authorities to ensure criminal charges are brought against those that have committed a crime.
Giving Victims a Voice and Demanding Justice
Emotionally troubled people often retreat further within themselves when their therapist violates their trust and takes advantage of them. Feelings of isolation and humiliation often prevent them from speaking out. At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd, we’ve seen the emotional damage psychiatric malpractice can do. That’s why we’re committed to vigorously pursuing and exposing therapists who have no business treating patients.
We’ll speak out and give you the voice you need to demand justice. For more information regarding our practice and to schedule a free consultation, contact psychiatric malpractice attorneys at the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd today.
