Experienced With North Carolina Medical Negligence Cases

Attorney R. Bailey Melvin has handled medical negligence lawsuits that involved:

  • Failure to diagnose cancer. Cancer symptoms can be mistaken for other conditions. In order to be sure that a patient does not have cancer, the proper tests are necessary. If there is no test, or there is a mistake with the test or lack of follow up, the cancer can spread, hurting the patient's chances for survival. The window for cervical cancer detection is especially wide. If a woman has a yearly pap smear, she should never develop cervical cancer.
  • Emergency room errors. Health problems like heart attacks cannot wait. Every hour that passes worsens the problem. An improper triage or lack of response can worsen an already acute problem.
  • Other hospital errors. When health care providers breach their duty of care to you, they should be held accountable. Our law firm represents clients who are victims of surgical errors, errors that occur before or after operations, preventable anesthesia errors and medication mistakes.
  • Birth injury. There are numerous complications that can happen during a pregnancy and during a birth. Most of the time, a mother and her baby can come through with the help of a capable OB-GYN. If the doctor makes a mistake, however, the result can be damage to the brachial plexus (shoulder dystocia ) or cerebral palsy.
