Hilton Head, SC Medical Malpractice
When you visit a doctor or other licensed medical provider, you have every right to expect professional treatment and quality care. They are, after all, supposed to be professionals.
Sadly, though, that’s not always the case. In fact, according to a 2018 study, medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the U.S., trailing only behind heart disease and cancer.
If you or a loved one believe you are a victim of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation. Our firm has over 30 years of experience handling medical malpractice lawsuits. We know exactly what to look for and how to help you through this process. Contact us today for a free case evaluation to learn more.
What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is when a licensed doctor, hospital, or other healthcare provider causes injury to a patient due to a “negligent act or omission.”
A negligent act means that the doctor provided reckless, inattentive treatment, such as an avoidable diagnosis error or unnecessary surgery. Omission means that the doctor failed to do something critical, like recognize symptoms or order proper testing.
Medical malpractice does not necessarily mean that you faced an unfavorable or undesirable medical outcome: doctors cannot guarantee results for any medical condition or treatment.

How We Help
Investigate your Injuries
Our award-winning team of medical malpractice lawyers will perform a thorough investigation of your case, including a review of the medical records, gathering of evidence, speaking to medical witnesses and experts, and more. We’ll determine if the medical provider acted negligently with your care, and, if so, how much damaged it caused.
Negotiate on your Behalf
Hospitals and medical providers are required to carry insurance. In most cases, the insurance company will offer you a settlement for your claim. We will present our investigative findings and proof of your injuries to negotiate a fair settlement that will cover all your damages, including pain and suffering.
Represent you in Court
If the insurance company will not settle fairly, our legal team is ready to see them in court. We have a 30-year proven track record of winning for our clients.
