MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY
Epting Law Group is by your side 24/7
When people go to a doctor or hospital, they go in hopes of getting better, and they trust that their caregivers are reliable and properly trained. Unfortunately, many people end up getting worse due to errors and other forms of medical malpractice.
In fact, nearly one-hundred thousand American lives are lost each year as a result of preventable medical negligence, with roughly one million others suffering from injury. However, not all negative outcomes support a malpractice claim.
Defined in South Carolina as “falling short of the standard of care in the treatment of a patient because the medical professional acts or fails to act”, medical malpractice can include doctors, nurses, chiropractors, dentists, surgeons, physician’s assistants, pharmacists and more. To file and win a malpractice case, there must be evidence of negligence on the part of the physician or institution that caused injury or death. Negligence, in these cases, is the failure to do that which a careful, reliable and well-trained physician would have done under the circumstances, or his/her failure to comply with accepted standards. The plaintiff must prove negligence for all medical errors.
