We have independent investigators and expert witnesses to call upon. We also have extensive experience with these cases and a record of success with complex personal injury litigation.
Many nursing homes, assisted living facilities or convalescent centers do not train or monitor their workers properly. This may leave their staff incapable of providing the quality of care your loved one deserves. The elderly in these care facilities may feel that they can't speak up. They may believe that they will be punished by the staff if they complain. Or, they may not have the capacity to inform anyone of the abuse they suffer. These victims must have advocates. If you have concerns about any type of elder abuse or neglect, call our elder abuse attorneys as soon possible to punish the perpetrators of nursing home abuse.

Attorneys who will Fight for Maximum Compensation
In many nursing home abuse lawsuits, the healthcare provider may not admit wrongdoing but may offer a settlement to make the case "go away." These are often low-ball settlements and should not be considered without first speaking with an attorney. What may seem to be a fair settlement may not provide the compensation needed for medical bills. Furthermore, a low-ball settlement may not encourage the nursing home to alter its practices. By hiring our attorneys and fighting for maximum compensation, you may get the support your family needs and force the facility to more seriously focus on patient safety.
