Attorney Handling Medical Malpractice Lawsuits in North Carolina

The Melvin Law Firm dedicates itself to helping people who have been injured as a result of medical malpractice. We are led by Greenville attorney Bailey Melvin, who has represented hundreds of families like yours over the course of his 20-plus year career. We have been fortunate enough to win some very difficult cases. If you are thinking of bringing a North Carolina medical malpractice lawsuit, we can help you evaluate your potential claim.

Our practice is 100 percent devoted to medical malpractice cases. This focus separates us from many of the firms in the state, for whom med mal is only a small part of a more general practice. Our focus is one of the reasons why clients reach out to us from places like Raleigh, Greensboro, Charlotte and smaller communities across the state.

Fostering Open, Honest Communication With Clients

North Carolina medical malpractice lawsuits are difficult to win. Insurance companies defend these cases vigorously. Additionally, North Carolina’s legislature has joined many other state governments in passing laws making malpractice suits more challenging in recent years.

Attorney Melvin regularly travels to see clients who are unable to come to our Greenville office. After visiting with you and listening to your story, we will then obtain medical records and other necessary documents to determine whether your condition was addressed properly. If it appears that a care provider was negligent, then we will discuss whether you may have a valid malpractice claim. Not every mistake by a doctor or nurse warrants legal action, and we will not encourage you to pursue a claim that we do not believe has a chance to succeed.

Contact a Raleigh Doctor Negligence Attorney for a Free Initial Consultation

If you or someone you love would like to speak to a lawyer about a potential North Carolina medical malpractice claim, please call our Greenville-based office at 800-391-8191 or 252-321-0088. You can also send us an email if you prefer. Your initial consultation is free, and you owe no attorney’s fees unless we recover compensation for you.
