You entrust your life to doctors and medical professionals who treat you. It is reasonable to expect that they will be up to the task.

If you have been injured by medical malpractice, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the responsible medical professional for financial compensation. Call the Hite Law Firm to learn from our skilled injury lawyers serving the Greenwood community whether you may be able to pursue a medical malpractice claim.

Types of Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle

Medical malpractice cases involve any type of error by a medical professional or hospital. Here are the types of medical malpractice cases that the Hite Law Firm handles:

  • Birth injuries
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to diagnose medical conditions
  • Botched surgeries
  • Failure to treat medical conditions
  • Failure to prevent infections

No matter what type of case you file, you would need to prove that the doctor failed to do what a reasonable doctor of average training would have done under the same or similar circumstances.

Statute of Limitations in a Medical Malpractice Case

You have a limited amount of time to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. Like every other state, South Carolina has a statute of limitations in personal injury cases. In medical malpractice lawsuits, you have three years from the following events to file your case:

  • The date of the procedure that caused your injury
  • The time when you knew or should have known of your injury

There are often questions about when the statute of limitations begins to run. You do not always know that the doctor has made a mistake at first. For example, if they botched a knee replacement surgery, you may not realize that the procedure has failed until many months afterward.

What to Look For in a Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Realistically, medical malpractice cases are challenging but winnable for plaintiffs. First and foremost, you need a medical malpractice lawyer who has specific experience in these types of cases. Although they rely on some of the same legal principles, medical malpractice cases are different from other personal injury cases. It is never easy to convince a jury that a doctor who seems trustworthy actually did something wrong. The attorney needs to have a strong grasp of the science and the specifics of the medical field.

Your medical malpractice lawyer would work with experts to establish that a doctor failed to live up to their duty of care. They should have a strong network of expert witnesses with whom they can work. They would need to compare what this doctor did with what a reasonable doctor would have done under the circumstances.
