Residents in a nursing home require a high level of monitoring, assistance and medical care. If your elderly family member died or suffered injury because of substandard care, the owners and operators can be held accountable.
The Myrtle Beach law firm of McCutchen Vaught Geddie & Hucks, P.A., advocates for nursing home residents and the family members who entrusted their loved ones to elder care facilities. We have successfully pursued nursing homes in Horry County, Georgetown County and throughout South Carolina for negligence and medical malpractice.
Trial lawyer Gene Vaught has practiced in personal injury law for more than 25 years. His record of notable recoveries includes cases of injury, illness and wrongful death in nursing homes:
Patients fall for lack of assistance, or become malnourished because they cannot feed themselves. Medical staff may give the wrong drugs or fail to provide needed medications. Bedridden clients develop dangerous and painful pressure ulcers (bedsores) because they are not bathed, changed or repositioned at regular intervals. Family members are supposed to be notified about injuries or a decline in health, but often this is not the case.
We conduct a thorough investigation to show that the administration and medical professionals on staff failed to provide the minimum standard of care and dignity mandated by law. We review the medical records, staffing levels and hiring practices, prior complaints and findings against the facility, and other evidence of medical malpractice and negligence. As necessary, we involve medical specialists and other experts to establish professional malpractice and a causal connection to your loved one's injury, deteriorated health or untimely death.
We pursue compensation for medical intervention, lasting harm and the pain and suffering your loved one endured.
