Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Charleston and Mount Pleasant

If you are the victim of medical malpractice, your original health issue may have been left untreated or poorly treated and you likely now have additional medical problems resulting from the negligence of your caregivers. If you entrusted your health to a medical professional and received negligent care in return, you may be entitled to compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Experienced and Knowledgeable Medical Malpractice Representation

Medical treatment can be difficult to fully understand and medical malpractice laws are extremely complex. Medical errors add further complication because involved parties must gain a full understanding of both the appropriate treatment that should have been provided and the inappropriate treatment that was actually given.

At the Hughey Law Firm, LLC, we collaborate with the appropriate experts for your case whom we know from our experience, and examine the medical aspects of a potential medical malpractice claim and use our experience to determine the damages involved and potential recovery. I worked for several years as an insurance defense attorney and defended doctors, nurses, hospitals, clinics, and other care providers against claims of medical malpractice. Since founding my own firm, I have represented people just like you -- people who have suffered the effects of medical malpractice. I have a thorough understanding of both sides of medical negligence claims and have two medical malpractice cases go to the South Carolina Supreme Court.


In one recent case, a young woman's medical tests revealed breast cancer but she was not informed of this finding for fifteen (15) months. In another case, a man's X-Ray results revealed a two centimeter nodule on the upper lobe of his left lung. The radiologist recommended additional tests but the attending physician neither conducted nor ordered additional evaluations. In each case, death resulted and our firm was able to recover. This should not be considered as a description or characterization of the quality of the firm's representation and in no way should be interpreted as a guarantee of a specific outcome for your case. Every case is different and must be evaluated on its own merit.
