Learning About Medical Malpractice in Summerville

When a health care provider in or around Summerville makes an error that results in patient harm, that provider may be liable under South Carolina medical malpractice law. What is a medical malpractice claim? In short, it is a claim that allows an injured patient to sue a health care provider for harm due to that health care provider’s negligence. Each state has its own medical malpractice laws, and in South Carolina, in addition to proving the elements of a medical malpractice claim, a plaintiff will also need to plan to file a “notice of intent and an expert affidavit.
