Hospital Negligence

Hospitals Are Supposed to Make You Well

When you go to the hospital, you have a right to receive health care that focuses on treating your illness properly. If a hospital did not provide a level of medical care that the law holds it to, you have the right to seek compensation for your medical injuries and financial losses.

The Hughey Law Firm practices as a personal injury law firm in litigation areas related to medical negligence, including hospital malpractice. Our attorneys have many years of experience and have handled cases involving:

  • Improper diagnosis and treatment
  • Sanitation and infections
  • Emergency room errors
  • Medication errors
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Pre-surgery tests and treatment
  • Falls and fractures
  • Head injuries and death

We work with independent experts on all cases involving medical and hospital malpractice, including surgeon mistakes, nursing medication errors, misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose.

Free Consultation - Personal Injury Cases Handled on Contingency

From our offices in Mt. Pleasant, we represent clients throughout the Charleston metro region and communities throughout South Carolina. We are also licensed to represent clients in Georgia through attorney Stuart Hudson. We offer a free consultation about your hospital malpractice claim. During your appointment, we will explain the law and give you clear information about your options. If you decided to move forward together with a hospital malpractice claim, we will handle your case on a contingency. If we can't help you recover money damages for your claim, you will not pay attorney fees to our firm. You will also not have to pay costs if we do not recover money damages. Fees are calculated before expenses.

If you can't come to our offices, we will come to you.

We know the standard level of care the law expects and we know what tactics the hospital will try to use to defend their negligence. Since founding the Hughey Law Firm, we have represented numerous clients in cases involving injuries and death from negligence.
