When Surgeons Make Mistakes
When we undergo surgery, either as an elective procedure or to save our life, we trust our lives to a team of medical professionals who have undergone years of specialized training. We are grateful for their skill and dedication, but also have every right to expect that every effort will be made to prevent injury due to errors or negligence.
Under South Carolina law, surgeons and medical professionals (including the hospital or clinic) have a responsibility for meeting an expected level of care that measures up to the standards provided by their peers. If a patient is injured because of a surgical procedure, malpractice litigation may seek financial damages from the medical malpractice insurance provider covering the doctor and/or hospital.

Not every lawyer or law firm in South Carolina has the technical or professional resources to successfully represent clients in cases involving surgical errors. At Wilson Law Group, LLC, we work with medical specialists and experts to investigate the circumstances of your case. We will not accept a medical malpractice case unless we are confident we can reach a fair settlement on your behalf, or take your case to trial. With our office in Bamberg County, we serve throughout the state.
Armed with the medical and technical facts, we negotiate aggressively while preparing for trial. We are proud of our record in medical malpractice cases.
