What is Medical Malpractice?

To put it simply, medical malpractice is sub-par medical care. It is doing what a qualified and reasonable medical care provider wouldn’t do. It may also be failing to do what a reasonable healthcare provider would do.

South Carolina medical malpractice laws apply in Beaufort.

See S.C. Code § 15-79-110(6).

Here are just some of the things that may amount to medical malpractice:

  • Delayed diagnosis, incorrect diagnosis

Proving Medical Malpractice

To prove medical malpractice, we start by learning your story. Then, we investigate. As we build your case, we work to prove:

  1. You received medical care from the person or parties named as defendants.
  2. The care you received was professionally inadequate. It fell below acceptable standards.
  3. Because of the bad medical care, you suffered harm.
  4. You deserve fair compensation.

We’ll work with medical experts to investigate and explain prevailing standards of care. Then, we’ll look at all possibilities for compensation.

Get Fairly Compensated for Medical Malpractice

Compensation for medical malpractice should address financial losses plus the victim’s suffering. You may claim compensation for:

  • Costs of medical care to address the harm; additional medical bills that you have because malpractice occurred
  • Lost wages and income if you are unable to work
  • Personal care, skilled nursing care, replacement household services
  • Pain and suffering, disfigurement, mobility difficulties, scars
  • Mental health injury, emotional anguish
