Seek Justice & Protect Your Quality of Life
Hospitals and healthcare clinics exist to provide patients with life-saving treatments and surgical procedures. Unfortunately, most medical professionals are too overwhelmed and exhausted to deliver exceptional services and a reasonable standard of care. In fact, when hospitals are understaffed, the goal is to cycle through as many patients as possible, regardless of their conditions and concerns. This often leads to devastating and preventable medical complications and fatalities.
The physical and financial repercussions of a medical malpractice injury can have a significant impact on your quality of life. If you’ve been injured by the negligence of a healthcare professional, contact the medical malpractice attorneys at Price Petho & Associates P.L.L.C. We have the experience, knowledge, and resources to represent your case both in and out of court.

Understanding Medical Malpractice
Legally, “medical malpractice” occurs when a medical professional’s actions or omissions cause injury to a patient. Per the statute of limitations in North Carolina, a patient has 3 years to file a medical malpractice claim. However, there are nuances and exceptions to this deadline that you can discuss with an attorney at our firm. Otherwise, if you don’t attempt to seek reparations within the legal time period, the court may refuse to hear your case.
Medical malpractice cases include, but are not limited to:
- Surgical errors
- Post-surgical infections
- Prescription errors
- Anesthesia injuries
- Birth injuries
- Lack of informed consent
- Nursing home accidents
- Failure to diagnose
- Delayed diagnosis
