Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys In Hilton Head and Beaufort

Adequate foods and liquids are among the most important services that medical facilities and nursing homes provide their patients. However, due to lack of adequate staffing or resources, general incompetence and malpractice, too many patients do not get the food and drink they need, leading to serious illnesses and death in the most extreme cases.

Beaufort and Hilton Head Personal Injury Lawyers Fighting For Those Mistreated>

At McDougall LawFirm, LLC, we have represented South Carolina clients as Beaufort attorneys for malpractice litigation since 1996. We understand the tragic experience that our clients go through as a result of medical and nursing home negligence. We can provide dedicated litigation services that are personally tailored to your individualized needs, focusing on your legal matters so that you and your family can begin rebuilding your lives.

Dehydration and Malnutrition

Some of the most common symptoms of malnutrition and dehydration include:

  • Dizziness
  • Weakness/lack of energy
  • Weight loss
  • Dry mouth

If you see these symptoms in a hospitalized loved one or nursing home resident, contact us immediately, as they can lead to serious, even deadly illnesses.

The expectation is that medical and nursing home staff will at least give their patients adequate food and water — it is the bare minimum of their duties. When they fail to perform their duties and their patients suffer serious injuries or illnesses as a result, we will work with you to hold them accountable and to help you obtain compensation for the losses you have suffered.

We welcome the opportunity to sit down with you to discuss your case and discuss your rights and options. Call 843-379-7000 or contact us online for a free initial consultation with a lawyer from our firm. We handle our personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, so there are no attorney fees unless we win a favorable judgment or settlement in your case.
