If you think that a loved one was the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, you owe it to that individual and your family to try to find out what happened. If our office pursues your claim, you can be assured that professional legal counsel will obtain all relevant medical records, review all documentation, and consult with leading medical experts, to determine definitively whether your loved one did suffer from nursing home abuse or neglect.
The cost can be quite high for the treatment of a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect. Often the resulting injuries are permanent, and may require hospitalization or a higher level of medical treatment and nursing care than your loved one previously needed. This can be an extreme hardship for the victim and his or her family. If the injuries are the fault of a nursing home, then it should have insurance to pay for those substantial bills, other expenses, and damages for pain and suffering.
Proving a nursing home abuse or neglect case is a complex process. It may take an attorney hundreds of hours to gather all of the documentation, make a determination, and file the appropriate claim on your behalf. To succeed, you need a lawyer who is well versed in the complicated laws that govern these legal actions.
A study indicated that injured victims represented by legal counsel obtain far greater recoveries than individuals who attempt to represent their own interests. Once an experienced attorney gathers the necessary data and determines the extent of the injury, he or she will know the best way to proceed.
Making a legal claim for nursing home abuse or neglect can involve a substantial emotional investment. At the same time, insurance companies will vigorously fight against paying damages to an injured victim -- especially in nursing home cases. Our firm is here to represent your interest in these proceedings and to counsel you as you undergo a long and sometimes draining legal process. We will do everything possible to ensure the emotional well being of you and your family as we pursue your case.
