A New Law in North Carolina Would Bar Patients from Suing Emergency Rooms for Medical Malpractice

There is controversial bill in North Carolina which could become law which would completely bar patients from recovering damages against emergency medical providers for traditional medical malpractice claims. This bar would be applicable even if they are harmed or permanently disfigured by the negligent medical care. Under this version of the proposed law, an injured patient could only recover from emergency medical providers if they are grossly negligent or their conduct is in willful and wanton disregard for the wellbeing of the patient. This higher burden would preclude all but the most egregious types of cases.
