Making You Whole Again

When gross negligence speaks for itself

Nightmares should remain in the dark. They should be something you wake up from, to the comfort of a soft pillow and the relief that it is already receding into the shadows as the sun comes up on your day. But what if your nightmare doesn't recede? What if the man or woman or medical team that has taken an oath to heal has become so desensitized to the gravity of their role that they make mistakes? What if the mistakes they make are so obvious in nature that even an untrained eye can spot the error?

When medical treatment is done recklessly, what does that mean for your life and your livelihood?

Gross negligence is a term for careless and reckless behavior by a medical person or team that has resulted in detriment to your person. Examples would be things like your being stitched up with a tool or gauze still in the body cavity or a doctor removing the wrong limb in an amputation. Another would be a doctor removing your good kidney or lung instead of the diseased one, thereby leaving the patient in a substantially compromised state, worse off than without treatment. These are primary cases of times when actions speak for themselves and anyone can see the issue.

If you were the victim of a medical treatment that left you worse off, or if you've lost a loved one due to doctor error or negligent medical care, you may benefit from speaking with a medical malpractice attorney in South Carolina. He or she may be able to make your reality a little easier, even if the nightmare cannot ever be forgotten.
