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 to which the law holds it, 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 Mount 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 decide 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 for you. Fees are calculated before expenses.

If You Can't Come to Our Offices, We Will Come to You

I have many years of experience as an insurance defense lawyer, defending hospitals and health care providers against medical malpractice claims. I know the standard of care the law expects and I know the tactics the hospital will try to defend their negligence. Since founding the Hughey Law Firm, our team has represented numerous clients in cases involving injuries and death from negligence.
