Common Causes of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice cases arise from many factors, often rooted in negligence or errors in medical care. Our seasoned team at KD Trial Lawyers is well-versed in handling cases involving:

  • Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis: In the fast-paced world of medicine, accurate and timely diagnosis is crucial. Misinterpreting symptoms or delaying diagnosis can have severe consequences.
  • Surgical Errors: Surgeons, despite their expertise, are not infallible. Errors during surgery, such as wrong-site surgery or leaving surgical instruments inside the patient, can lead to severe complications.
  • Medication Errors: Administering the wrong or incorrect dosage can have grave repercussions. Pharmaceutical precision is paramount in ensuring patient safety.
  • Birth Injuries: The joyous occasion of childbirth can turn tragic due to medical errors. Injuries to the infant or mother during delivery demand thorough investigation.
  • Failure to Obtain Informed Consent: Patients have the right to make informed decisions about their medical care. Failing to provide adequate information and obtain consent can result in legal ramifications.

What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Medical Malpractice Claim?

Understanding the potential damages that can be recovered is crucial for those pursuing a medical malpractice claim. At KD Trial Lawyers, our relentless pursuit of justice encompasses the recovery of:

  • Medical Expenses: Reimbursement for current and future medical expenses incurred directly from malpractice.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for income lost due to the inability to work, either temporarily or permanently.
  • Pain and Suffering: Recognition and compensation for the physical and emotional anguish endured by the victim.
  • Loss of Consortium: Compensation for the impact of malpractice on the victim's relationships and familial bonds.
  • Punitive Damages: Damages may be sought to deter future misconduct and hold the responsible party accountable.

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Medical Malpractice Claim in South Carolina?

Time is of the essence in pursuing a medical malpractice claim. The statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases is crucial in South Carolina. At KD Trial Lawyers, we emphasize the importance of acting promptly. Generally, the statute of limitations is three years from the date the injury occurred or could reasonably have been discovered.

However, exceptions exist, particularly in cases involving minors or where the malpractice was fraudulently concealed. It is imperative to consult with our experienced legal team to determine the specific deadlines applicable to your case. Delaying action can jeopardize your ability to seek rightful compensation.
