Patients in Pickens Need Help Defending Against Medical Malpractice
If you have undergone surgery or other medical treatment, and have suffered injury, illness, wrong site surgery, or an overdose of medication, then you may have a medical malpractice claim. However, you must establish that the doctor’s, surgeon’s, or nurse’s negligence led to your injury directly.
Once you establish that negligence occurred, based on the medical professional’s training and the standards of diagnoses in the medical community, and that the negligence or failure to diagnose directly led to your injury, you still have work to do in the courtroom. You must establish that the physical and emotional damage done to you will lead to financial hardship, due to high medical costs for ongoing treatment, temporary or permanent disability, and lost wages.
South Carolina Medical Malpractice Victims Bear Burden of Proof
Filing a medical malpractice claim is not a simple civil litigation. You as the victim bear the burden of proof, meaning you must prove that the medical professional caused you harm. You will need to call in medical experts, and establish that your treatment deviated from standard practices in the medical field at large.
This can take a long time, and while you are enduring treatment for your physical and emotional pain, taking on this amount of work can feel stressful. If you believe you are the victim of medical malpractice, you do not have to suffer alone. A medical malpractice attorney in South Carolina can help with every step of your case, from defining negligence or failure to diagnose, to determining how much your medical malpractice claim is worth, financially.
