Recoverable Damages in a Charlotte, N.C., Medical Malpractice Claim

What If My Loved One Passed Away from Their Injuries?
If you lost a family member due to medical negligence, you may be able to file a medical malpractice claim based on their wrongful death under G. S. § 28A-18-2.
At Anastopoulo Law Firm, we can determine if you qualify to take this type of legal action or who can act on behalf of your family. Our team can also analyze the details of your loved one’s death to identify the liable parties and handle the claim for you. Recoverable damages in a wrongful death case could include:
- Funeral and burial costs
- Medical expenses
- Lost income and future lost wages and benefits
- Loss of services
- Intangible losses your family endured
A Liability Limit Exists on Non-Economic Damages
Under G. S. § 90-21.19, you may not be able to take home compensation for all the non-economic damages you experienced due to malpractice. This statute creates a liability limit on intangible losses, which could affect your payout.
Our team can help you understand how this applies to your case and work to mitigate its impact on the compensation you receive.

Understanding Medical Malpractice
While doctors and other medical practitioners are human and do make mistakes, medical negligence is common. It occurs when the care provider fails to adhere to an acceptable standard of care for their patients, and injuries occur as a result. These injuries could come from:
- Misdiagnosis and incorrect treatment
- A missed or delayed diagnosis
- Surgical errors, including wrong site or wrong side surgeries
- Failing to treat an injury or illness properly
- Medication errors, including prescription and non-prescription drugs
- Birth injuries
Our team can help you determine if you were a victim of medical malpractice during a free case assessment. To prove medical negligence occurred, we must call in experts who have similar training and experience in your doctor’s field in the greater Charlotte area. They will review the medical records and other evidence and provide testimony about the case.
Our team has a network of physicians we can call on to support our clients in these cases. We will work to identify the best option for your case and use their knowledge to develop a strong argument for compensation.
Time Limits Vary Depending on the Details of Your Medical Malpractice Case
North Carolina law includes several deadlines for suing a doctor or hospital for medical malpractice. These deadlines depend on the specific facts of your case. For example:
- Under S. § 1-15, you have two years from the date the malpractice occurred or one year from the date you discovered your injuries.
- Under S. § 1-17, minors who suffer birth injuries caused by malpractice could have a decade to take legal action.
- Under S. § 1-53, families who lost a loved one to medical malpractice have two years to sue in a wrongful death claim.
Additional deadlines could apply in some cases, such as if you sue a municipal hospital or other government institution.
