Medical Malpractice Lawyers Serving Jacksonville and All of Eastern North Carolina

People trust doctors, nurses and other medical personnel to take care of them when they are sick or injured. No one expects that these professionals will injure or kill them.

Yet, negligence at North Carolina hospitals, emergency rooms, clinics, nursing homes and other care facilities occurs, and when it does, it may cause injuries for which North Carolina residents can pursue compensation.
