Medical Malpractice Lawyers Who Help Columbia Seek Justice
If a doctor's negligence caused your injury, call us
When you see a doctor, whether it's a routine checkup or emergency treatment, you should feel like your health is in good hands. But many people suffer injuries each year due to medical errors and negligence. The medical malpractice attorneys at Lourie Law Firm believe there is never any excuse for such injuries, and work to recover compensation for victims.
There are thousands of medical professionals working in Columbia and throughout South Carolina. Many work in private practice or in hospitals such as Lexington Medical Center, Providence Health and Palmetto Health Baptist. All are required to provide care consistent with accepted standards in the medical community. Whenever a medical professional is negligent and does meet those standards, people can get hurt, and that professional needs to be held responsible.
We have the experience and resources to handle complex medical injury cases
There are many different types of medical malpractice. Patients are giving the wrong medication. A doctor does not order the correct tests to diagnose a disease or condition. Someone is given the wrong blood type during a transfusion. A surgeon performs the wrong procedure. Our attorneys have a wide range of experience with medical malpractice cases, including:
- Medication errors
- Failure to diagnose
- Surgical errors
- Failure to monitor health
- Childbirth injuries
- MRI or X-ray errors
- Emergency room errors
If medical malpractice has left you injured, you need an attorney who will fight for your rights. Contact the Lourie Law Firm today.
We hold negligent medical professionals responsible
Medical malpractice cases can be complicated. Simply having a negative medical outcome is not enough to claim malpractice - we must prove that a medical professional failed to meet proper standards of care, and that you were injured as a result. But our legal team knows where to look for that evidence of negligence to build a strong case. We will examine all documentation and talk to witnesses. We will also consult experts to determine if standards of care were followed. If we find a medical professional was negligent, we can help you seek compensation for your injuries.
Each case is different, and the amount of compensation you are eligible to seek will depend on many factors. But in general, victims of medical malpractice can recover past and future medical expenses, as well as any lost wages from not being able to work. You may be able to seek damages for disfigurement, physical impairment, mental anguish and pain and suffering. We may also be able to seek punitive damages.
Medical malpractice resulting in personal injury should never be tolerated. Our attorneys fight hard to help victims recover the compensation they deserve, which they often need to help them get by. We keep fighting until we reach a resolution of your case that works for you. In many cases, we are able to accomplish this through negotiations with the malpractice insurance company, but we'll take your medical providers to trial if that's what it takes.
