Holly Hill Medical Malpractice Lawyer

When a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other healthcare professional makes a mistake or acts with negligence that causes injury to a patient, medical malpractice may have occurred. Mistakes that cause permanent damage or even the wrongful death of a patient can lead to a medical malpractice claim, which can allow a victim or surviving family members to pursue compensation for losses suffered in connection with the malpractice. The Holly Hill medical malpractice lawyers of Christmas Law have years of experience handling medical malpractice claims; with our help, our injury lawyers will work unrelentingly to resolve your claim.

Determining the Validity of Your Claim

While there are cases of true medical malpractice, there are also instances in which patients are injured or pass away simply as a result of the normal course of life. Although all cases of permanent injury, illness, and death are tragic, not all of them lead to valid medical malpractice claims. As a result, it is important to determine whether you have a substantiated claim before taking any action. In order to evaluate your potential claim, a Christmas Law lawyer will take the following actions:

  • Investigate all of the facts and circumstances that led to injury or death
  • Review all medical records relating to the incident at issue
  • Interview any witnesses to the events that occurred
  • Enlist the help of medical experts to determine whether the health care practitioner or entity acted in a negligent manner

These measures will help us determine whether you have a valid claim under South Carolina law. Not all mistakes result in an injury, or justify a lawsuit. Other cases, however, can constitute medical malpractice. For instance, if a physician fails to take reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of infection in a hospital, in accordance with standards set forth by the Centers for Disease Control, and a patient suffers injury or death as a result, then there may be a valid malpractice claim. By engaging in an extensive review of your treatment, we can determine the validity of your potential claim and help you decide on a prudent course of action, given your circumstances.

Pursuing Compensation for Injuries

Our attorneys are dedicated to passionately representing your interests and pursuing compensation for losses. We have the knowledge and skills to present your claim, advocate on your behalf, and work toward a resolution of your claim.

As a result, we will devote our efforts to reaching a settlement in a manner that is acceptable to all parties involved. If settlement is not possible, however, we will not hesitate to litigate your claim.
