Good Samaritans
Placeholder Image
A bill currently before the S.C. General Assembly would provide immunity from lawsuits to medical personnel who are treating people for free. It’s an extension of the state’s Good Samaritan statute, which protects doctors who stop to help accident victims, and it makes perfect sense. Good Samaritan laws have been passed all over the country, and they allow physicians to provide services at accident scenes without having to worry about being sued for malpractice.
