Medical Malpractice

It occurs every day all over the world. Recently on the Today Show, Dr. Jerome Groopman described the current problems with modern medicine. One typical problem was failure of doctors to listen to the patient. Dr. Groopman stated that doctors stop listening to the patient after about 18 seconds. Dr. Groopman continued by stating,”15-20% of people are misdiagnosed and in half those cases the result was real harm to the patient.” These so called “thinking errors” can lead to tremendous hardship for patients and their families.  Our South Carolina medical malpractice lawyers handle several types of medical negligence, including but not limited to:

  • Cancer detection and treatment
  • Plastic Surgery
  • Brachial Plexus Injury
  • Birth Injuries
  • Prenatal Care Negligence
  • Placental Abruption
  • Fetal Distress
  • Brain Damage
  • Failure to Properly Screen for Genetic Disorder
  • Surgical Negligence
  • Failure to Diagnosis
  • Improper Diagnosis
  • Radiology
  • Cardiology
  • Obstetrics

Medical negligence does not necessarily have to be the result of the acting physician, it also includes the actions of nurses and aftercare specialists.  Many of the acts described above will only be determined to be negligence upon a showing that a physician’s acts have fallen below the level of acceptable care. This means that the normal procedure that a doctor should have performed was not performed and as a result, an injury has occurred. When you are the victim of medical negligence, it can be difficult to bring an action against your physician or nurse.  However, you should not be responsible for the expenses incurred as a result of another’s negligence.  Our South Carolina medical malpractice lawyers at Russell Mace & Associates, P.A. represent individuals and families injury by medical negligence.  We can assist you in recovering for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, rehabilitative costs, lost wages, and other expenses from your injury.  Contact our office toll free at (843) 839-2900 or toll free at 1-800-94-TRIAL.  You may also contact us online.
