South Carolina Malpractice Premiums for Full Time Employed Registered Nurses
South Carolina requires suits for malpractice claims be brought within three years of the date of occurrence or three years from when the injury should have been discovered (to a maximum of six years after the injury). The first exception is for objects retained during surgery, which gives the patient two years from discovery to sue. The second is for minors who have seven years after injury or till their nineteenth birthday, whichever is shorter. the third exception is for those declared insane, who have five years from the occurrence or one year after the disability is removed to bring suit.
South Carolina also holds those partially at fault jointly liable for the entire award or settlement if the other negligent parties cannot pay.
