Leveling the Playing Field Against Hospitals and Their Insurers

With more than 40 years of experience, we have developed a deep understanding of complex medical malpractice cases and how to help our clients get the compensation they deserve. We handle all types of medical malpractice cases, including those involving:

  • Injuries to mothers and children during birth, including shoulder dystocia, cerebral palsy, faulty cesarean sections and more
  • Misdiagnoses of diseases like cancer, which can aggravate a person’s suffering or lead to an untimely death
  • Errors during and after surgery and in the emergency room, including operating on the wrong body part, administering too much anesthesia or prescribing the wrong medicine

Hospitals and doctor’s offices are often protected by large insurance companies with well-seasoned trial lawyers who will try to prove that a doctor’s or nurse’s error was unavoidable. We build strong claims by working with medical experts to determine liability and then consult with accountants, physical therapists and others to determine the extent of your losses and limitations.

Whether you are suffering due to a doctor’s actions or a psychiatrist’s mistreatment or you are worried about a loved one living in a nursing home, we can help. We take charge of your claim from day one, handling every complex aspect of your case, building a claim for maximum compensation while you concentrate on your recovery. As our client, you can count on us to not settle your case too early; we will keep you up to date and help you make choices that protect your best interests.

FAQs About NC Medical Malpractice Laws

At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd P.A., we have built a strong reputation for securing compensation on behalf of victims of medical malpractice. If you call our firm in Fayetteville, North Carolina, at 910-323-2555 to schedule a free consultation, we can answer questions such as:

I think my doctor committed medical malpractice, but he or she is denying it. What makes a successful case?

A successful medical malpractice claim must prove that your doctor, nurse, psychiatrist or other health care professional had a duty of care to you and that a breach of that duty occurred. That means the care did not meet common acceptable standards. Successful malpractice claims often rely on the testimony of experts in the field who can describe why the care you received was negligent.

Why do I need an attorney? Can’t I just handle this on my own?

While it may be true that in some cases a hospital will offer a quick settlement that will cover your needs, medical malpractice claims are extremely complex. We have built a nationwide network of experts who we can call on to help prove where fault lies and the extent of the damage. You should not have to worry about this difficult legal work while you are also trying to deal with the consequences of a doctor’s negligent acts.

Should I talk to the hospital’s insurance company about my claim?

You should never talk to an insurance adjuster about your medical malpractice claim. Insurance companies try to limit their losses, which means they may try to take your words and use them against you. At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd P.A. in Fayetteville , our lawyers will handle the insurance companies on your behalf, putting you in the best position for success.

A hospital staff member said I could not take pictures that may help my case. What should I do?

If you have developed a bedsore, if there is a safety hazard or if there is anything else that you think has endangered your safety, you can document it. Our attorneys will work hard to protect and enforce your rights.

I need money now to cover my medical bills. Should I just take the settlement offer?

You should only accept a settlement offer after discussing it with an attorney. In many cases of medical malpractice, especially those involving birth injuries, the victim may need ongoing medical care for years or even the rest of his or her life. A quick settlement offer may be good for the short term, but you could be left facing severe financial hardship down the road.
