How Can a South Carolina Medical Malpractice Lawyer Help Me? Get Answers from Twenge + Twombley

At Twenge + Twombley, our medical malpractice lawyers understand how important this question is to anybody who suffered a serious injury while receiving medical care of any kind. Before your injury, you probably fully trusted your doctors, surgeons, nurses and other medical professionals. You likely never thought you or somebody you care about would be hurt while visiting the hospital, the doctor's office or local pharmacy.

When healthcare providers are accused of medical malpractice, they immediately begin investigating to limit liability. The hospitals and insurance companies have aggressive attorneys working to protect their interests. The defense lawyer's job is to find ways to deny your claim or keep payments to an absolute minimum.

That's why you need someone on your side. Level the playing field. Contact Twenge + Twombley today: 866-452-6315. These cases can be difficult to prove without experienced legal counsel.

To help you make informed decisions, we have a list of a few frequently asked questions our attorneys receive about medical malpractice in South Carolina. Contact us today. We're eager to help you.


What is considered medical malpractice in South Carolina?

All medical procedures carry a certain degree of risk. Sometimes a patient might sustain injuries even when the medical provider does everything he or she is supposed to do. However, if a doctor, surgeon, nurse or hospital staff does not follow the standard of care in South Carolina, he or she may have committed malpractice. With the help of an attorney, you might have grounds to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the doctor or hospital whose negligent behavior caused your injuries.
