South Carolina Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
If you place your trust and confidence in a nursing home who chooses to subject a family member to unsafe, unreasonable or substandard care, there is nothing unfair about expecting to be compensated for the pain and suffering your loved one has experienced through their mistakes, carelessness or neglect. Yet in South Carolina and throughout the United States, we are repeatedly told that individual patients must sacrifice their right to fair medical malpractice compensation in order to make healthcare a more profitable industry for doctors, hospitals and insurance companies.
We offer free initial consultations.
We handle most nursing home cases on a contingency basis. That means you are not expected to make any payment unless we obtain compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages. In some cases, however, the client must first assume the cost of obtaining medical records and having them reviewed by a qualified physician in order to obtain the required affidavit of merit.
We are available to help people in Columbia and throughout South Carolina with all types of nursing home cases, including those based on:
- Medication errors (overmedication, failure to administer the correct medication, failure to predict drug interactions, prescribing drugs for non-FDA approved uses)
- Bed sores
- Wrongful death
- Charting errors
- Misplaced or lost medical records
- Post-operative infections
Nursing home cases are complex. We have the experience necessary to build a strong legal strategy designed to achieve full and fair compensation. Part of that strategy is to enlist an experienced medical expert from the very start. We will set up a confidential review of your medical care to determine the proper standards were followed. The expert will work to determine exactly how the negligence caused or contributed to your condition. Furthermore, the expert will be able to present this information in front of a judge and jury if necessary.
