Attorneys in Charleston Who Will Fight for the Elderly
The nursing home attorneys at Hughey Law Firm understand that in some instances, nursing home facilities do not take care of their patients, and your family, like they should. Nursing homes and other care facilities are hired when families need help caring for their family members because they struggle to care for themselves. These facilities also offer families peace of mind knowing that their loved ones are being provided a higher quality of life than they could offer on their own. This multi-billion dollar industry receives state and federal monies and is required by law to adhere to strict protocol and procedures. Nursing home and home health management and staff are legally expected to offer the highest standard in personal care, sanitation, and supervision. If your loved ones have been neglected, maltreated, or abused in one of these facilities, our nursing home attorneys will fight vigorously and tirelessly for you and your family and will always hold care facilities accountable for their actions in order to prevent the establishment from creating future victims. Our team of nursing home attorneys in Charleston will be your advocate in these difficult times and will seek justice for your family member who has been mistreated or suffered abuse.
