Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing Home Malpractice Lawyer

While almost nothing can be as difficult and important as choosing the right nursing home for your loved one, choosing the right lawyer is also an important decision. You can’t just trust anyone to have you or your loved one’s best interests in mind! You have to be cautious about working with the people who are dedicated to your health and happiness, and vow to take care of you in your time of need. 

After putting your trust in the nursing home of your choice, learning that your loved one is being neglected or abused can feel like a personal betrayal. Sadly, you’re not alone. According to one study published in the National Library of Medicine, 24.3 percent of elderly patients have reported at least one incident of abuse or neglect from their nursing home staff. Some organizations suggest the numbers of unreported cases may be higher. Either way, one thing is clear: your older family members need to seek justice and protection. That starts with hiring a great lawyer.
