When Negligence Comes From Nurses And Staff
When we think about medical malpractice, we often think about the actions of doctors. However, when you visit a doctor’s office or emergency room, stay in the hospital or have surgery, there are many ways in which nurses and other staff can cause you harm.
When a nurse’s negligence leads to injuries or wrongful death, you can take action through a medical malpractice claim just like you would against a doctor. With more than 40 years of experience and a reputation that extends far beyond our Fayetteville, North Carolina, location, our lawyers at the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd P.A. are well-equipped to handle your claim from start to finish.
We Know How To Build Strong Claims
Nurses and hospital staff often work long hours, which can lead to sloppy work and miscommunications with your doctor and other staff. When that happens, errors such as the following can occur:
- Failure to properly monitor, which means ensuring you take the right medication and alerting a doctor in times of distress
- Performing the wrong tests or administering the wrong medication
- Failing to maintain safe conditions, which can lead to slip-and-fall injuries, infections and lifting injuries
- Lab and pharmacy errors
Long hours and little pay are no excuse for errors that can put your life in danger. We work to not only hold individual actors accountable, but to establish a pattern that hospital administrators were negligent in training and staffing.
Founding attorney Wade Byrd does this by consulting with nursing experts and preparing a thorough accounting of all the nurse’s or staff member’s actions. We can build a strong claim that the insurance companies will have to take seriously when considering how to defend against your claim. We will be ready to take your fight to court if necessary to seek the compensation you deserve.
