What constitutes a medical malpractice suit?

When we go to the doctor or hospital in South Carolina, we expect to get treated in a way that does not lead to a worsened medical condition. Yet accidents happen, leading to all sorts of complications — sometimes even death. Often, these mistakes can be grounds for a medical malpractice suit. But how do you know if you have a case?

Tragedy of doctor error compounded when victims delay their claim

If you have suffered a personal injury due to doctor error such as a failure to diagnose, wrong-site surgery, or a medication mistake made by a prescribing physician, you may have a right to compensation under South Carolina law. But an injured patient can easily lose this right by not being diligent about pursuing the claim in a timely manner.

When joy turns to distress, look to us for assistance

The arrival of a child into the world is one of those moments that happens only occasionally in life. It is something that is months in the making and which is greatly anticipated, along with the parents' dreams and hopes for their child's future. Most of the time the moment of birth is a time for celebration. But on occasion something can go terribly wrong, and when it does the consequences for everyone can be heartbreaking.

Electronic health records: the new medical malpractice frontier?

Part of the health care reforms that began in 2010 under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the mandatory transition of health care record keeping from paper-based to electronic format. While the U.S. Department of health and Human Services claims that this conversion will reduce health care related administrative burdens and costs, as more health care providers and health insurers implement the change we may be seeing the beginning of a new trend in medical malpractice actions as a result: lawsuits alleging harm from errors in electronic records.
