Assisted Living and Home Health Care

Assisted Living and Nursing Home Attorney In Charleston, South Carolina

When a loved one goes into assisted living or requires home health care, families are counting on the highest levels of personal care. Assisted living providers have a responsibility to ensure that medical needs are taken care of and family members are notified of increased health problems. Unfortunately, care centers often fail in their responsibilities and the patient is neglected or turned over to a conveyor belt of care providers.  Assisted living regulations are complex and state specific, and few providers understand or abide by South Carolina's regulations.  We hold them to that.

The attorneys of Hughey Law firm are all former insurance defense attorneys with experience defending assisted living centers and home health care providers against elder abuse claims.  We gave up that practice in order to fight for elder patients and their families. We know the tactics they will use to deny your claim. We fight back with effective, aggressive legal strategies that work.

Free Consultation • Personal Injury Cases Handled on Contingency*

If a vulnerable member of your family has suffered an injury or neglect because of negligence on the part of an assisted living center or home nurse, we urge you to stand up and take action. We are the nursing home negligence lawyers at Hughey Law Firm in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. We have taken a role representing the rights of residents of nursing homes and assisted living centers throughout the Charleston region and the entire State of South Carolina.

When should you turn to an assisted living and nursing home attorney in Charleston?

Families are often unaware of the negligence and elder abuse that occurs when a vulnerable parent or grandparent enters the care of an assisted living center or home health care provider. The signs of abuse and neglect are often subtle. If you suspect any of these signs, contact our offices immediately to arrange a free consultation:

  • Injuries from falling accidents, including broken hips and other fractures
  • Sudden weight loss, possible signs of malnutrition and dehydration
  • Bruises, scrapes and burns
  • Infections from pressure sores and bedsores
  • Decubitus ulcers and skin breakdown
  • Change in demeanor, becoming fearful or withdrawn

Our firm has broad experience handling assisted living related injury and death cases, and has extensive experience with the complex laws and regulations at both the state and federal levels that govern management policies and expected level of care for assisted living centers and home health care providers. We regularly teach other attorneys on assisted living related litigation.
