South Carolina Hospital Personal Injury Lawyers

When you visit the hospital, you trust that the medical professionals on duty will provide you with the attentiveness and care that you need to get better. And in the majority of cases, patients are admitted and discharged from the hospital without issue. However, every so often, things do not go as planned, and a patient suffers serious injury as a result of a hospital worker’s negligence.

At Steinberg Law, we have a longstanding tradition of representing patients who have been seriously injured due to hospital workers’ negligence, including doctors, nurses and pharmacists. We proudly represent injury clients in South Carolina medical malpractice claims, slip-and-fall accidents, pharmacy errors and more. We also handle workplace injury claims on behalf of injured hospital workers. With decades of experience handling all types of Charleston hospital injury cases, we can help you effectively pursue a claim for compensation against those responsible for your injuries.

Statistics Section

• Medical errors are currently the third-leading cause of death in the United States, behind only heart disease and cancer.
• Medical errors are responsible for about 10 percent of all deaths in the country.
• An estimated 440,000 people die every year from hospital errors, injuries, accidents and infections.
• Approximately 1 in 25 patients who are admitted to the hospital develop a preventable infection.
• Medicare patients are especially at risk, with 1 in 4 suffering some type of injury when admitted to the hospital.
• The rate of injury for hospital workers is about double the average rate of injury across other occupations.
• In 2011, the most recent year for which statistics were available, there were more than 253,700 work-related injuries and illnesses, which equals a rate of 6.8 work-related injuries for every 100 full-time employees. Over 58,000 of these injuries required the employee to miss at least one day of work.

Holding South Carolina Hospitals Accountable

Hospitals are places that people go to get well. However, they can also be very dangerous. Having practiced personal injury and medical malpractice law for decades, at the Steinberg Law Firm, we have been doing this long enough to notice a pattern. The following injuries are the ones we see most frequently:

• Medication errors
• Preventable infections
Missed or delayed diagnosis
• Defective medical devices
• Surgical errors
• Slip-and-falls
• Anesthesia mistakes
• Failure to monitor patients
• Failure to order necessary testing

The dangers that hospitals present affect more than just patients. In fact, hospitals are some of the most dangerous workplaces in the country, especially for nurses, administrative employees and sanitation workers. Both hospital workers and patients rely on hospitals to devise sound safety protocols to keep them safe. When hospital administration fails to live up to this duty, everyone is at risk.

Regardless of the type of injury, the chances are high that it was preventable had hospital administration taken the necessary precautions. At the Steinberg Law Firm, we provide hospital injury victims and their families with compassionate, yet aggressive representation from the moment we begin working on the case.
