A: Dear sir / ma'am:
I am so sorry about the poor care you received. Thankfully, it sounds like you didn't suffer a permanent injury as a result of their misdiagnosis - as you acted quickly to ensure correct care and treatment. As such, you would not likely have a financially viable malpractice claim.
Meaning, most attorneys can only afford to file cases where the potential outcome is greater than $25,000 - $50,000 - as these cases are so expensive for our firms to pursue.
So while the urgent care may have been negligent, it will likely cost you more to file suit than you could recover. As such, our office wouldn't recommend any formal claim.
If you don't wish to recover financially - we do encourage patients to notify the negligent provider so they can make their care better in the future for other patients.
Good luck - glad to hear you are not permanently injured, but so very sorry for the misdiagnosis and stress associated with their bad care.
A: Oh wow - I am so sorry to hear all of this. You may have a claim against them - but I am not licensed in NC and cannot advise as to the laws of negligence in North Carolina. If you would like a few excellent attorneys licensed in both VA and North Carolina - I recommend Amberley Hammer (Va Beach) or Fred Smith (Martinsville). Both can advise on a NC case. I wish you all the best, and am so sorry to hear what has happened.
A: Dear one - I am so sorry for this bad news.
I would have a meeting both with the hospital risk management (where you do mostly listening as to what happened) and call an attorney in your area experienced in Medical Malpractice work.
I will be thinking of your family and will say a prayer for your brother.
