Experienced Medical Malpractice Lawyers Serving South Carolina

Charleston attorney helps victims recover full compensation

Physicians and other healthcare providers owe their patients a duty to provide a professional standard of care, demonstrating the same level of skill that fellow practitioners generally exercise. Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider breaches that duty through negligence or carelessness and causes injury to a patient. Medical malpractice victims may recover compensation for their injuries, including past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost income.

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Negligent nursing home care
  • Surgical errors
  • Nursing malpractice

To prevail on a medical malpractice claim, an injured plaintiff must usually retain expert medical testimony to establish that the care was negligent care and the negligence caused harm.
