Assisted Living and Home Health Care

Assisted Living and Home Health Attorney in Charleston, SC

When a loved on 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 at Hughey Law Firm are 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.
