Nursing Home Negligence and Elder Abuse Lawyer
It is almost like a silent plague across the country. Dozens of nursing homes take thousands of dollars from health insurance companies, Medicare, Medicaid and from private annuities and pocketbooks. And what do they deliver? They deliver negligent care.
It was in the headlines many times in the 2009-2010. There were nursing home patients who were found living in squalid conditions while the administrators wined and dined on steak and rode around in limousines. Of course, these were the necessary perks the administrators granted themselves until a firm such as us took a look at the complaints that the families of some patients were claiming.
From what we found out, the list of negligence included: unchanged linens, poor clothing and food, physical abuse, neglect and, in some cases, malnutrition, dehydration among other common known issues. These were just too much for the litigators to bear.
We took the cases to court and began to win. Where, we couldn’t win right away we made sure that the patient’s rights were protected. What about those ms-medicated patients and patients whose bruises and other injuries may just have “happened.” We exposed these abuses and worked with clients to ensure that they do not happen in the future by gaining their clients the awards they deserve.
How many times have you heard in the news about elder abuse and “falls” that just happen at nursing homes and other facilities? Those “falls” and other mishaps are just part of a pattern of elder abuse and neglect that we have uncovered at many nursing homes.
And how about the prescription mistakes that keep patients in virtual states of stupor while the nursing homes charge exorbitant monthly fees and make lots of money for their owners?
It’s not something that the nursing home industry wants aired, but it is a case that we are willing to take on and carry to its conclusion. Our lawyers often win huge damage awards for the patients and their families and exposing the abuses that they have suffered.
An Inexcusable Problem
The nursing home industry should not be allowed to get away with it and we will provide the representation you need to make sure that it doesn’t happen to you or your loved ones now or in the future. It is said “physician heal thyself!” In this case, though, the motto should really be changed to read “Industry heal thyself!”
