It’s the kind of thing you hear about but never expect to happen to you or your family. We’re talking about hospital medical errors and they are more common than you think. When you go to the hospital, whether for a routine procedure or an emergency, you have an expectation of quality care no matter who you are or your income level.
Unfortunately, sometimes healthcare professionals are negligent in their duties and need to be held accountable. If you need a Palmetto General Hospital accident lawyer, the Dante Law firm has a team standing by. We have experience with medical malpractice cases and will help you get the compensation you deserve.
Palmetto General Hospital offers a wide range of services, both emergent and non-emergent. While we recognize that most doctors and nurses perform their jobs at a high level of skill, we also know that some make careless mistakes that injure their patients further.
Medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than 250,000 people a year. Imagine how many more live through the horrors of medical mistakes.
