Socastee Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical malpractice cases are some of the most difficult types of lawsuits to prove. And because of the challenges that pursuing a successful medical malpractice case present, you don’t want to entrust your case to a Socastee lawyer or law firm that is not experienced with this specific type of litigation. These cases require a massive amount of medical knowledge, access to medical experts, financial wherewithal to build a compelling case, and experienced trial attorneys who can stand up to vigorous medical malpractice insurance attorneys.

The attorneys at Christmas Law have the experience and knowledge it takes to see a medical malpractice case through trial. While settlements are often a more efficient way to resolve any legal dispute, they are sometimes impossible due to tough insurance carriers who will try to give you the least amount possible. We fight back, and will aggressively represent you keep your needs at the forefront of the case.

Medical Malpractice Claims: By The Numbers

According to statistics compiled by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, reports of medical malpractice claims in South Carolina have been on the rise in recent years. For example, there were only 588 reported incidents of medical malpractice in 2004, and there were 826 in 2013. That’s almost a 41 percent increase, which outpaces the national average over this same period. At the same time, the number of payments for medical malpractice claims in South Carolina has gone down from 192 to 172. While the majority of these claims are made against Medical Doctors (M.D.s), there are also a number of claims brought against other healthcare professionals such as nurses, social workers, psychologists, therapists, counselors, dentists, pharmacists and more.

In addition to these reported claims, there are still many more that go unreported every year because people don’t realize they were the victims of medical malpractice or because they were intimidated by their doctor or hospital into not filing a claim. For example, the majority of medical malpractice claims are related to diagnosis (33% of all claims); however, how would you know if you were improperly diagnosed in the first place?
