Helping SC Residents Get Compensation for Common Medical Malpractice Claims

If you feel that you were harmed by a healthcare professional who failed to properly provide you with medical care, you could be entitled to compensation. You’ll have to prove that that the healthcare professional failed to do something that they should have done or did something that they shouldn’t have done.  You’ll also have to prove that you’ve experienced some sort of loss or suffering as a result of that negligence. North Charleston medical malpractice lawyers examine the details of your case and help you navigate through the process of seeking damages for your suffering.

Some common medical malpractice claims that attorneys in North Charleston handle include:

  • Delayed diagnosis – If your doctor doesn’t identify your illness or disorder in a reasonably timely manner and you’re forced to suffer, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim.
  • Missed diagnosis – Did a doctor miss a diagnosis that most other reasonably qualified doctors would have detected? Missing a diagnosis can cause you increased suffering, and you could be entitled to compensation.
  • Childbirth injuries – Whether due to negligent prenatal care, negligence during the childbirth procedure or both, many women and children experience pain and suffering in the post-childbirth phase as a result of negligent medical care.
  • Medication errors – Being prescribed or administered the wrong medication can pose serious health risks. If your doctor prescribed you the wrong drug, or if another healthcare professional administered the wrong medication during a procedure, filing a medical malpractice claim may be an option for you.
  • Anesthesia errors – Even small errors in the anesthesia phase can cause lifelong injuries and/or death for the patient. If your healthcare professional made an error during anesthetization, this could be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
  • Surgical errors – Errors during surgery are often potentially life-threatening. If your healthcare professional erred during the surgery process and you’ve been forced to suffer,  a lawyer may be able to help.
