Hurt by Medical Malpractice?
A South Carolina Injury Lawyer Can Help
Whether in the operating room, emergency room or doctor’s office, physicians and nurses are expected to adhere to standard treatment protocols. When doctors, hospitals and other health care specialists deviate from certain diagnostic procedures and treatment methods, symptoms can be misidentified, warning signs ignored and life-threatening mistakes made. The South Carolina injury attorneys at McGowan, Hood & Felder, LLC work closely with medical professionals and experts in determining what went wrong and how the medical error could have been prevented. When necessary, we subpoena doctor or hospital records and interview witnesses to expose medical negligence and doctor or hospital errors.

When You are a Victim of Medical Malpractice
Because of changes in tort law, medical malpractice in South Carolina requires a preliminary affidavit of negligence on the part of a doctor before a case can be filed in court. As your medical malpractice attorneys, we will work closely with you and medical experts in preparing your case to show you were a victim of physician or hospital negligence. Afterward, we also consult economic impact analysts to determine the financial implications of your injury. We present findings detailing your need for future medical treatment, medical equipment, in-home care and the value of lost earnings and quality of life.
