Liability for Medical Malpractice

Given the nature of the medical profession and the gravity of the situations that give rise to a medical malpractice claim, South Carolina law has procedural safeguards in place to ensure that medical professionals are shielded from frivolous lawsuits. To this end, medical malpractice claims are procedurally complicated and require medical expert opinions before a lawsuit is filed.

The Charleston medical malpractice attorney at Ellis Roberts Law, LLC take these cases very seriously and carefully review all potential cases to ensure that they will meet the requirements for bringing such actions under South Carolina law.

If you were injured or if you believe a loved one was lost as a result of medical malpractice, we are eager to assess your potential claim so that you can recover from your losses.

How Long Do I Have to File a Medical Malpractice Claim?

The State of South Carolina has a time limit, or statute of limitations, in place limiting the amount of time a person has to file a personal injury claim. This time limit begins on the date of the accident or when their injury was identified as a result of another's negligence, such as in cases of medical malpractice. In South Carolina, medical malpractice victims are allowed up to three years to file their claim. If you are unable to file your claim in this time frame, you may forfeit your right to recover compensation. By contacting an attorney as soon as possible, you may be able to avoid missed deadlines or additional complications in filing your claim.

Examples of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can occur anywhere that medical services are provided. This includes hospitals, doctors’ offices, medical centers, cancer treatment centers, and wellness centers.

Examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Mistakes in surgery
  • Misuse of anesthesia
  • Inaccurate reading of test results
  • Erroneously prescribed medication

Medical malpractice claims are usually complex and are nuanced depending on the provider and other factual variances. The attorney at Ellis Roberts Law, LLC have represented victims in complicated malpractice matters over many years and are equipped to effectively advocate for you in your claim.
