Law firm pushes for more penalties against doctor in hepatitis case

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) -- Attorneys for patients who may have been exposed to hepatitis B said Monday that they had filed for a lien against the doctor's home.

At the McGrath Law Firm in Mount Pleasant, attorneys said there were 22 confirmed cases of hepatitis B after getting spinal injections at the Tri-County Spinal Care Center in North Charleston.

Attorneys said more than 500 patients were exposed, but only 167 people have been tested so far.

At a press conference with attorneys and some of the affected patients, attorneys said they had filed for a lien against the doctor's home and requested insurance information about his practice. Attorneys said the doctor at the center of the case has faced a license suspension previously.
