At the Harrell Law Firm, P.A., we have compassion for those who are suffering as the result of medical malpractice. All health care professionals, doctors, pharmacists, nurses, occupational and physical therapists for example, are held to a certain standard of care when treating patients. When they fall below that standard, they may be held liable.
Just a few examples of medical malpractice are:
- A surgical error. It may be as serious as the surgeon operating on the wrong body party, or the wrong patient. A foreign body, like a sponge, may have been left inside. A vein or artery might have been cut, causing you pain and suffering and possibly even impairment of the use of a limb.
- A diagnostic error. The doctor diagnosed the wrong disease or failed to diagnose a serious disease.
- Medication errors. Either the wrong dose or the wrong medication was prescribed or administered.
- Birth injury. Fetus and mother may not have been properly monitored during the birthing process.
At the Harrell Law Firm, P.A., we recognize the trauma of discovering the health care providers you trusted are the very ones who caused your injury. Contact us so we can help you through the complicated maze of medical malpractice law. We serve all those in the state of South Carolina.
