South Carolina Nursing Home Litigation Attorneys

Protecting clients’ rights when abuse is alleged

Nursing homes and assisted living centers provide a broad range of care, including medical, nutritional and custodial. The care they provide must meet strict and continually changing standards to ensure the well-being of their residents. Milligan & Herns, P.C. represents patients and their families when negligence or substandard care causes serious injury or death. Our lawyers also represent nursing homes — though never in the same case — when they and their staff members require competent counsel and a fair presentation of their care and concern for patients.

As the American population lives longer, more long-term care facilities will open, and with them will come the potential for nursing home malpractice claims. For our nursing home clients, we devise concrete operational plans designed to prevent conditions that lead to litigation. When claims do arise, we vigorously defend against them.

Likewise, we aggressively pursue claims on behalf of victims whose families have entrusted their care to nursing homes.

Skilled representation from beginning to end

Our experience on both sides of nursing home negligence cases affords us a unique perspective that permits our attorneys to provide well-reasoned representation to clients, regardless of whether they sit on the plaintiff side or on the defense side of the table.

We represent clients at every stage of mediation and litigation — from initial investigation through trial and appeal. We understand the complexities of these sensitive cases and often retain reputable experts to ensure each case has a reliable basis.
