We Aggressively Pursue Negligent Nursing Homes
If you suspect your loved one may be the victim of abuse or neglect, contact our office immediately. Nursing homes are licensed by the state and have to comply with specific regulations and statutes. As such, they are required to follow certain procedures and keep records of day to day operations. As your nursing home abuse lawyer, we can take steps to ensure documentation isn't altered or destroyed and employees are transferred or dismissed.
Our injury attorneys will use the law to help your loved one regain his or her dignity. Working closely with family members, we investigate each case and front any court costs involved. If your case is won, our fees are paid from a percentage of the settlement or trial verdict awarded to you. Call 842-737-6279 or complete our online form today.
