Nursing Home Neglect

​It is hard enough making the decisions of placing a loved one in a nursing home and finding one that you think will provide your loved one with the care that they deserve. It is absolutely devastating to find out that the nursing home is responsible for the injury, illness or even death of your loved one. The nursing home must be held responsible for their actions and we are here to help you.

We stand up for the rights of elderly people who have suffered nursing home negligence. We see many different types of nursing home abuse and neglect cases. Some of the more common examples are:

  • Emotional abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Willful deprivation such as malnutrition and dehydration
  • Medication errors

There is no excuse for nursing home negligence. We thoroughly investigate each situation and decide on the best course of action to take. Depending on the circumstances, a civil lawsuit may be brought in addition to criminal prosecution. It is important to hold such parties responsible in order to not only recover the compensation that you are entitled to but also to attempt to stop this behavior from taking place again in the future. We have decades of experience in fighting for the rights of elderly people who through no fault of their own are the victims of nursing home negligence.
