What we do

We have earned our stripes as personal injury and medical malpractice lawyers – but if you’re like most people, you may not know exactly what that means. At McGowan, Hood & Felder, LLC, it means fighting hard on behalf of those who suffered because of the negligent acts of a doctor or another person, or by a company that makes, sells or distributes dangerous products. To that end, we help people who have sustained harm because of:

This is only a sample of the types of cases our South Carolina lawyers take on behalf of victims and their families. We are your advocates for justice when you are hurt and scared. We stand up to the insurance companies and the manufacturers who put their bottom lines ahead of your personal safety and well-being. We take on complex litigation such as class-action lawsuits and MDLs, and fight for individuals and their loved ones when they have been hurt.

Bacterial Infections at Local Hospitals

Over the last few years, a spate of non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infections have broken out in South Carolina and across the country. Many patient who have undergone open-chest surgeries involving Sorin 3-T Heater-Coolers have been infected, and patients in the Greenville Hospital system have died as a result. Most recently, Roper Hospital in Charleston has had an outbreak of mycobacterium fortuitum, allegedly related to contaminated water; 27 women have been infected with NTM. McGowan, Hood & Felder, LLC represents former Roper patients who have developed non-tuberculous mycobacteria infection

"I am writing to give a review of my experience with McGowan, Hood & Felder, LLC. I am a person who expects excellence and this law firm did not disappoint. I was pleased with every aspect of this firm from their well tailored office to their professional, yet friendly staff. I am confident that my experience was so pleasant because I had Chance Farr as my attorney. From our very first conversation over the phone I was immediately put at ease. Chance has been present, he has always made himself available, he has fought for me, and he has always made me feel any concern of mine was important to him. His knowledge of the law combined with his quick wit and professional demeanor is quite impressive. Having Chance as my attorney was like having a friend by my side during each step of this case. I am extremely pleased with the settlement he won for me and I would highly recommend him without hesitation."
