You Have The Right To Protect Your Health
Medical negligence, also referred to as medical malpractice, is an important area of emphasis at The Law Office of Daryl G. Hawkins, LLC. The Institute of Medicine reported that an approximated 98,000 people a year suffer death due to medical errors in hospitals. The medical/pharmacological industry, along with their insurance representatives and carriers have the ability to bring about the greatest changes in the law, through legislation and lobbying efforts.
Unfortunately, this subjects consumers to complex and often misunderstood regulations that may impede their understanding of their rights to quality health care. As a medical malpractice attorney, I can help you understand your rights, navigate the many complex laws regarding medical negligence and fight for the maximum compensation for your damages.
Leading The Way In Medical Negligence Cases
The Law Office of Daryl G. Hawkins, LLC appealed and argued the case Patricia Brouwer v. Sisters of Charity Providence Hospitals, et al, 409 S.C. 514, 763 S.E.2d 2014 (SC Supreme Court), resulting in recent decision by our Supreme Court related to the South Carolina statute requiring the filing and service of a notice of intent to file suit against a health care provider in many situations and resulting in a simplified process for qualified cases.
The Law Office of Daryl G. Hawkins, LLC couldn’t be more proud to be a part of the process to simplify the procedure of filing a medical lawsuit in South Carolina. By empowering laymen who recognize obvious errors by professional medical staff, I have helped to level the playing field in medical malpractice suits.
