Practice Areas: Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

As our population ages and as health care becomes more and more expensive, more and more families are forced to turn to skilled nursing facilities to care for loved ones. Many seniors are unable to care for themselves. Because friends and family are not always able to care for the needs of seniors, for-profit nursing homes and assisted living centers have experienced a major surge in their numbers and in the number of seniors they care for.

Many facilities put profit over patient care. In those facilities, elders are being abused, not only physically, but emotionally and financially as well. Our attorneys have successfully represented many injured seniors and dependent care patients, and recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars on their behalf.

Nursing home neglect can manifest itself in many different conditions and it can result in a variety of injuries, including:

The national statistics on nursing home and elder abuse are grim. Conservative estimates indicate that one of three homes in America will be affected in some way by abuse of an elder in a nursing home or assisted living facility. With the senior citizen population growing at a rapid pace, nursing homes and senior assisted care facilities nationwide now exceed 1.5 million. This number is expected to triple in the next three years. Oftentimes, nursing homes attempt to save money and maximize profit by using inadequately trained or unqualified help. This puts your loved one at risk.

Working with experienced nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers is critical in order to obtain proper compensation for your elderly relative and insure that your loved one will be treated with the proper dignity and respect. Our attorneys have successfully obtained compensation and compelled changes in order to serve your loved one and to prevent further instances of abuse and neglect. Forcing nursing homes to meet their responsibilities to their residents is achieved by holding them financially accountable.
