Trident Medical Center Claims We Can Handle

Trident Medical Center is a 321-bed hospital in Charleston that offers various services, including emergency medicine, surgery, and an outpatient burn center. Patients who seek treatment at Trident have the right to expect competent, error-free care from qualified healthcare professionals. If Trident falls short of that standard, it may have to pay damages for the harm a patient suffered.

At Hughey Law Firm, we can represent Trident Medical Center patients harmed by, for example:

  • Misdiagnosis and missed diagnosis
  • Mistakes by doctors while performing procedures or delivering treatment
  • Poor sanitation and other conditions leading to a preventable infection
  • Errors by emergency room personnel
  • Improper medication or dosage
  • Patient neglect, including malnutrition, dehydration, or bed sores
  • Failure to perform appropriate or accurate tests
  • Falls that cause fractures, head injuries, or other trauma

Not every poor health outcome reflects negligence by a Trident Medical Center team member. But Trident could face liability for those that result from substandard care.

What Potential Compensation are You Entitled to for Negligence at Trident Medical Center?

If you suffered harm due to negligence at Trident Medical Center, South Carolina law may entitle you to significant compensation. Hospitals, like any other business or institution, must answer for the consequences of their careless or reckless conduct.

For example, you may have the right to claim payment for your:

  • Medical expenses in treating injuries, illnesses, or health problems caused or made worse by hospital negligence
