Medical Malpractice Is All Too Common
When you need medical care, you place trust in your attending health care workers. These workers are trained professionals, but accidents happen – and often result in very serious injuries. A medical malpractice claim is valid if the accident or injury is a result of misconduct or carelessness. In these situations, a health care professional is held liable.
You Must File a Lawsuit Promptly
In South Carolina, a medical malpractice lawyer must establish a doctor’s negligence before a case can proceed to trial, and the personal injury statute of limitations is short – in some cases you have as little as two years. This means that a claim should be filed and evidence must be established quickly. Contacting the Law Offices of Robert Dodson immediately provides you with the best chance of obtaining critical evidence before it is destroyed.
Misconduct & Negligence Will Not Go Unnoticed
We recognize that not all injuries received at the hands of physicians and medical care workers are valid medical malpractice claims, and we will review your case free of charge to help you determine if you have a viable case. Before we ever file suit in a medical malpractice case, we have the medical records and other evidence reviewed by an independent doctor for an unbiased opinion.
