An independent report from the Institute of Medicine, a branch of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that as many as 98,000 Americans die each year from medical mistakes. Countless other victims suffer permanent catastrophic injuries, burdening their families with a huge financial and emotional cost.

That’s why the medical malpractice lawyers at Crabtree Carpenter, PLLC are here for you.

Crabtree Carpenter, PLLC in Durham, NC is committed to helping victims get the compensation they need and deserve to try to make up for what was lost. We’ve amassed significant experience in cases ranging from failure to diagnose and birth injury to nursing home abuse and defective medical products. And we’ve become known as one of North Carolina’s leading firms working with people who are trying to right medical wrongs.

We’ve resolved medical negligence cases through trials and negotiated settlements all across North Carolina. We work with local, regional and national board-certified doctors to serve as expert witnesses. We also work with life-care planners, economists, bio-medical engineers, pharmacologists and other professionals, so that we can prepare the best possible case on your behalf.

And – just as important to us – we stand with you even after the case has been concluded, to ensure that the lifelong needs of you and your family are adequately taken care of by any settlement or verdict.

Bringing these cases can be time-consuming and challenging. No case can be brought unless a qualified doctor is willing to testify that the care did not comply with good practice. After our experts have reviewed the medical record, and have determined how and why the injury or death occurred, we can help you decide if it’s in your best interest to bring legal action. No medical malpractice suit should be filed without careful, thorough evaluation. We do not file frivolous lawsuits.
