When you are bringing a medical malpractice case, you need to know that you are going to be given a deadline that limits how long you have to bring this case. Every personal injury case is limited in time, but medical malpractice works slightly differently in South Carolina. This is for one main reason. You may not know that you are a victim of medical malpractice until a good amount of time passes. The general statute of limitations for a personal injury case is three years in South Carolina; however, since you may not be able to determine if you are a victim right away in medical malpractice, the statute of limitations doesn’t work the same way.
For example, if you have been operated on and a few weeks later you have a bad infection that needs to be operated on again, you might later find out that during the first operation they left a piece of gauze behind in your body. Or you may be taking your medication for some time and not be getting better or be suffering new side effects to discover that you were given the wrong medication or the wrong dose. For that reason, you are given three years from the date that you discover or should have reasonable discovered that there was medical malpractice.
We strongly encourage you to get to a medical malpractice lawyer right away to get the guidance that you need to start building your case. The sooner you get to a lawyer, the less they are pressed for time when it comes to building you a strong case. If you wait too long and miss your statute of limitations, you will be barred from receiving compensation.
