Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider fails to adhere to acceptable standards of care. In other words, when a nurse, doctor, or another healthcare professional fails to do his or her job – whether due to negligence, laziness, pride, or human error – and you sustain an injury as a result, you may have a medical malpractice claim. The best way to find out for sure is by calling the Greensboro office of Hayes Law at 336-645-3959 to schedule a free and confidential consultation with attorney Marcus Hayes.
Some of the most common types of medical malpractice are:
- Delayed or missed diagnosis
- Emergency room negligence
- Surgery errors
- Birth injury
- Improper medication
- Inadequate monitoring
When you are in the care of a licensed medical professional or a medical institution like a hospital, you are entitled to well-established standards of care, the source of which can be traced back thousands of years, to the works of Greek physician Hippocrates: “First, do no harm.” When a healthcare practitioner causes harm through negligent behavior, even if that behavior was unintentional, they may have violated these standards and committed medical malpractice.
Attorney Hayes is prepared to conduct a thorough investigation into your claim to:
- Determine if medical malpractice has occurred,
- Identify all liable parties, and
- Help you get every penny your injury demands

It is important to remember that, even if obvious medical malpractice has occurred, without an attorney you may never get justice. The healthcare industry has ways of protecting its own from legal challenges and its representatives may stoop to tactics of coercion and intimidation to silence victims of serious injury. Marcus Hayes can help protect you against these tactics while taking your case as far as needed to work towards the best outcome possible.
