The medical profession is held to one of the highest standards of professional competency, and for a good reason: even a simple, otherwise harmless error on a doctor’s part can end up having profound, possibly life-threatening consequences for patients. As a result, medical malpractice laws are in place to ensure that doctors who allow their patients to suffer harm in any form as a result of carelessness or recklessness can be held accountable.

What is medical malpractice?

Doctors and other medical professionals are held to a high standard of professional competency. Errors that occur because of a failure to meet this standard and cause patients to suffer harm constitute medical malpractice. Those who commit medical malpractice can be held financially liable for the damages their mistakes may have caused. If you have been the victim of medical negligence in the Charleston area, the malpractice attorneys at the Steinberg Law Firm will work tirelessly to pursue justice for you.

Our Medical Malpractice Practice Areas

While not all medical errors may be grounds for a claim for damages, patients may have a case for medical malpractice if they have been the victims of any of the following:

  • Pharmaceutical Errors
  • Birth Injuries
  • Dental Malpractice
  • Hospital Negligence

All of these issues should be taken seriously, as the impact they can have on the lives of patients and their loved ones can be extraordinarily damaging.

Medical Malpractice Answers

Medical Malpractice Overview

Doctors have an enormous responsibility towards their patients, as the care they provide can literally mean the difference between life and death in some situations. Therefore, doctors and other medical professionals are held to a high standard of professional competency. Errors on the part of medical care providers that occur as a result of a failure to meet this high standard and which cause patients to suffer harm are considered to constitute medical malpractice, and those who commit medical malpractice can be held financially liable for the damages their mistakes may have caused.

I’m dissatisfied with the results of a dental procedure. Can I file a malpractice claim?

Being unhappy with the outcome of dental work does not itself merit the filing of a claim, and is not a consideration for malpractice. However, if your dissatisfaction stems from consequences of the dentist’s action or inaction, such as numbness or loss of taste, or gum disease that a dentist should have diagnosed during the course of other treatment, you may have grounds for a case.
