Elders in Nursing Homes are Protected by Law
South Carolina law provides the elderly residents of nursing homes with the power to enforce their rights of independence and dignity. Nursing home staff must provide quality care to their residents. But in order to enforce those rights, oftentimes a lawsuit is necessary.
South Carolina enforces much of the nursing home regulation via DHEC and DSS, along with the South Carolina Long-Term Care Ombudsman. Those offices provide valuable resources and information that our firm will use to support our investigation and potential civil claims against nursing home facilities.
Our firm incorporates knowledge and a robust legal team to ensure Fedalei & Reid holds nursing homes accountable on behalf of our clients. With the proper knowledge and legal advice, you will hopefully rest assured that justice is brought on behalf of your loved one.
