In Charleston, SC, a plaintiff sued an emergency department physician and physician’s assistant alleging they failed to properly diagnose her hand injury which resulted in permanent loss of motion and permanent damage. She sued for actual damages, medical specials, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc. Molly Craig and Chilton Simmons of the Hood Law Firm represented Defendants, alleging the injury was not detectable at the time of treatment, and that the Plaintiff was comparatively negligent by failing to return as directed.

The jury deliberated for one hour and returned a defense verdict finding the Defendants did not breach the standard of care.
