Lawyers, doctors, dentists, psychiatrists and other professionals are held to a high standard. They need to be diligent and always looking out for the best interests of their clients or patients. When they fail to be diligent, fail to make the observations they are required to make or intentionally breach their duties, it can cause serious financial damage to the victims.

Personal Commitment, Professional Representation.

If you have been a victim of professional negligence, the Beaufort professional negligence attorneys of McDougall LawFirm, LLC can help you obtain the compensation you deserve. We have been helping South Carolina clients obtain compensation for their losses since 1996.

However, we know there is more to it than compensation; there is an emotional component as well. With doctors, lawyers and even architects and engineers, we trust them to be professional. A breach of that trust can be devastating. We will help you with the legal aspects of your situation so that you can have the confidence you need to begin rebuilding your life.
