Medical Malpractice

Are You the Victim of Medical Malpractice?

More than 195,000 people are dying in U.S. hospitals each year because of preventable medical errors, according to research by the health care rating organization HealthGrades. Many more patients suffer serious, but nonfatal, injuries due to medical malpractice.

If you have been injured or if a member of your family died because of medical malpractice, it is important to consult an attorney who can explain your legal rights and options.

The attorneys of James E. Smith, Jr., P.A., in Columbia represent patients in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia who were seriously injured by medical malpractice. We accept cases involving:

Misdiagnosis: Especially of cancer or other life-threatening conditions
Failure to diagnose: Robbing patients of the benefits of early treatment
Hospital malpractice: Including nursing errors and inadequate policies and procedures
Surgeon errors: Such as performing the wrong procedure, puncturing organs or leaving
  instruments behind
Medical Malpractice
Medication errors: The wrong prescription or wrong dose can be fatal
Birth injuries: Including those that lead to cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy, shoulder dystocia and other problems

Our medical malpractice lawyer has represented the family members of patients who died because of doctor mistakes. In one case, a liver transplant patient died because of malpractice during the transplant surgery. In another case, a person waiting for a lifesaving liver transplant was removed from the waiting list because of a doctor's failure to diagnose another medical problem. The patient died.

We also won a significant financial settlement for a client who will suffer excruciating pain for life because of the nurse administering cortisone injections into his spine for back pain went too deep, causing permanent nerve damage.
