Medical Malpractice Defense

Doctors, hospitals and health care providers strive to provide the best possible care every day. Despite everyone’s best intentions, mistakes in the emergency room or the operating theater do happen. If you are a practicing physician accused of medical malpractice, we understand that you are concerned. A day spent in court is a day spent away from your patients and your practice.

The law firm of Aiken, Bridges, Elliott, Tyler, & Saleeby, PA, has significant experience in medical malpractice defense. Aiken Bridges serves as General Counsel for McLeod Regional Medical Center, and our attorneys routinely defend hospitals and physicians against claims for medical malpractice. When the attorneys at Aiken Bridges defend hospitals and doctors, we are prepared to work closely with insurance companies and self-insured professional associations to minimize liability and potential damage claims.

Our broad range of medical malpractice defense areas includes:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose cancer or heart disease
  • Surgical, medication, or emergency room mistakes
  • Mistakes made by a hospital employee, including a therapist or R.N.
  • Birth injuries

Our attorneys and staff dig deep, researching heavily and performing the necessary legwork to counter arguments brought by the plaintiff and to refute putative experts brought in to testify against our client. We delve into medical histories, for example, to discover who instead of our client should be held liable for the alleged malpractice.

Since the founding of Aiken, Bridges, Elliott, Tyler & Saleeby, PA, in 1983, we have dedicated ourselves to providing prompt, efficient and professional litigation and legal services in conformity with the highest ethical standards, representing clients in both federal and state courts.
