We all rely on and trust our doctors and other health care professionals to provide proper and timely diagnosis and treatment of our medical problems—and, in most instances, quality care is what we receive. Unfortunately, sometimes doctors and health care professionals make significant mistakes that cause great consequences to their patients and their patients’ loved ones. If this has happend to you or a member of your family, contact our Spartanburg medical malpractice lawyers to discuss your case in a free consultation.
Medical malpractice (also known as medical negligence) occurs when a health care provider causes injury or death by failing to act within the applicable standard of care — meaning he or she fails to act as a reasonable medical practitioner would under the circumstances, and, as a result, causes harm to the patient.

Some specific examples of medical malpractice cases include:
Absolutely yes. There are many ways that social media posts can be taken out of context to dispute a claim. Simply discussing how you spent the day may cause the opposing party to argue that you are not taking reasonable steps to facilitate your medical recovery. In other words, they might say that you have failed to mitigate your damages and, therefore, you should be held at least partially liable for your medical costs and other losses.
There are many other ways for a seemingly benign social media post to harm your case. As such, you should set your profiles to private or, preferably, disable all social media accounts until the resolution of your case. You should also ask your connections not to post anything about you or tag you in photos, and decline any new connection requests from people whom you do not recognize.
