When we entrust our well-being to healthcare professionals, we expect them to perform their jobs with the utmost diligence and attention. It’s not just reasonable to expect them do so – it’s your right as a patient and healthcare consumer. Unfortunately, every day in the news we hear stories of physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals who failed to maintain the standards of excellence that the law requires of them when treating patients. If you or another loved one has been harmed as a result of a healthcare professional’s negligence or misconduct, you have the right under South Carolina law to file a civil suit.

We know how horrible it can be when a healthcare professional injures one of their patients, especially when that injury could have been prevented. We’ll tell you how we can help keep your financial life together while you concentrate on the big picture of your healing and recovery.
A serious patient injury doesn’t have to arise from surgery or some other invasive procedure. Something as innocent as a medication error can have long-lasting and severe consequences for a patient. Hospitals and other healthcare facilities have made significant strides in recent years in protecting patients from these kinds of oversights, but as statistics demonstrate, we still have a long way to go in the United States, where every year nearly 200,000 people die from medical errors and over a million more are harmed. Shockingly, in the vast majority of these cases no lawsuits are filed; in fact, fewer than 20,000 medical malpractice suits are brought against physicians annually. There is no reason not to hold healthcare professionals accountable for failing to maintain their expected care of duty when tending to patients.You have the right under state law to seek the maximum compensation legally available to you for easing the burden of significant hospital bills, lost wages, and the pain and suffering associated with such an injury.

What medical malpractice suits have in common is that they allege that a healthcare professional did not adhere to their expected duty of care when treating the patient who was harmed. The specific duty of care obviously differs depending on the experience and position of the healthcare professional involved, but depending on your circumstances, there may be multiple parties responsible for contributing to your injury. For example, if a physician writes a prescription for a drug that is incorrect, and a nurse fails to notice the error before administering the drug, harming a patient, both the physician and the nurse may be liable for medical malpractice under South Carolina law.
