Experienced Attorney Handling Medical Malpractice Cases In Greenville, South Carolina

When you go to the hospital or see the doctor, it is with the expectation that you will leave healthier than when you went in. At the very least, you expect to leave with a clear understanding of what is wrong and the available treatment options.

Unfortunately, as doctors, nurses and surgeons rush to see more patients, many people do not receive the full care they deserve. Doctors overlook obvious symptoms. Triage nurses fail to ask for complete background information on patients. Surgeons operate on the wrong body part or the wrong patient.

If you were the victim of a doctor's negligence or if you lost a loved one because of medical malpractice, an experienced lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve.

I am Ryan L. Beasley, Attorney at Law, and I have more than 15 years of experience representing clients in Greenville and throughout South Carolina in a range of legal matters. If a health care professional's negligent actions caused a serious or fatal injury, I can help you understand your options and move forward with the legal process.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I WAS THE VICTIM OF MEDICAL MALPRACTICE?

Even when doctors and nurses do everything correctly, patients do not always make full recoveries. However, if the negligent actions of a medical professional caused injuries or death, that constitutes medical malpractice.

Hospitals, doctors, nurses, surgeons, physicians, physician assistants and other health care workers can be held liable for negligence. Examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Birth injuries, including failure to diagnose gestational diabetes or preeclampsia, failure to perform a C-section, brachial plexus or shoulder dystocia
  • Emergency room errors, including failure to identify urgent conditions, failure to follow up with patients, and failure to identify symptoms of a stroke or heart attack
  • Failure to diagnose or late diagnosis, which includes failure to diagnose cancer, heart attacks and strokes
  • Prescription errors, including giving patients the wrong dose or the wrong prescription
  • Surgical errors, including operating on the wrong body part or wrong patient, leaving foreign objects in the body, or failing to monitor anesthesia
