Helping you prove diagnostic errors caused you harm

We go to the doctor to get better, right? So it is a bit shocking when we end up in a worse condition after seeking medical attention. While no one is perfect and even doctors make mistakes because they are human too, it is very detrimental to the health and wellbeing of patients when medical professionals fail to uphold their duty of care. Because of their education and training, a medical professional is expected to meet a certain standard of care when treating patients. Missing a step, making an error or being negligent could seriously impact a patient's life.

When a diagnosis is made, patients trust this finding. They follow the treatment plan of the doctor, believing that it will help them recover. But when the diagnosis is wrong, so is the treatment plan. And when both of these are wrong, two concerning situations could occur. First, a patient's condition is untreated, making it worsen. And second, the patient is undergoing the wrong treatment, potentially causing him or her to develop a new medical issue.

At Company Law, PLLC, our experienced legal team understands how the mistakes of a medical professional can significantly harm the health of a patient. Thus, we are focused and dedicated to serving individuals in the Charleston area, helping them assert their rights and file a medical malpractice action.

The harms caused by a diagnostic error can be tremendous. A patient is likely to suffer financial harm, as medical bills are likely to accumulate. Additionally, a patient could suffer mental and emotional harm, making it complex to calculate damages. Our attorneys are able to assess the damages and losses suffered by our clients, ensuring that they are properly compensated for all the losses suffered.
