South Carolina injury lawyer S. Randall (“Randy”) Hood focuses his practice on representing individuals who have been catastrophically injured in a preventable accident or representing people who have been wronged by an act of a corporation on a large-scale basis. His catastrophic injury practice includes people injured in a medical malpractice case, tractor-trailer collision, product liability claim, birth injury case or some other serious incident. The catastrophic injuries suffered by some of his clients have included traumatic brain injury, burn injury, paralysis, amputation, cerebral palsy and death. Randall also represents people who have suffered some type of injury due to wrongful conduct on behalf of a corporation or organized entity. This type of situation presents an opportunity for Randall to represent a class of individuals (class action) or many individual claims in a consolidated action against corporate entities (Multi District Litigation, or MDL).  These class actions or MDL situations usually involve a defective drug or medical device.


Randall was born in Macon, Georgia and moved to Charlotte, North Carolina when he was 12 years old. He attended public schools in Charlotte, North Carolina and attended college at the local University in Charlotte, North Carolina (University of North Carolina at Charlotte). Randall graduated college in 1985 and worked in retail management for four years before going to the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1989.

Randall attended law school for three years and graduated in May 1992. He began practicing in the area of personal injury with a law firm that would become known as McMehan, Weidner, Hood & Jackson. Randall stayed with that firm for five years before he began practicing law with James C. Anders, P.A. and Associates. He practiced with that firm until 2003. At that time, Randall Hood and Chad McGowan formed the firm that would come to be known as McGowan, Hood & Felder, LLC. The firm currently has six offices, which are located in Rock Hill, South Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina, Sumter, South Carolina, Georgetown, South Carolina, Anderson, South Carolina and Charlotte, North Carolina.

Randall is a proud parent and grandparent. He is married to Sharon Stone-Hood and lives in Lake Wylie, South Carolina. When not practicing law, Randall spends his time golfing, enjoying time with family and friends (especially his grandchildren), following the Carolina Panthers football team (and anything football-related), the Charlotte Hornets, most things Gamecocks-related and dabbling in real estate.
