Helping Those Injured in Nursing Homes or Assisted Living Facilities
When we leave our parents or other elderly relatives at nursing homes or other assisted living facilities, we place our trust and belief in the employees of those facilities to properly care for our family members. Unfortunately, we sometimes find that our trust has been misplaced due to abuse or neglect. There are legal remedies available, however, that would allow you to recover for the poor treatment of your loved one.
At our law firm, our Texas nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys have over a decade of experience providing dedicated, compassionate representation to clients throughout the state. Contact us online to learn more about how we may be able to help you.
Obtaining Compensation for Victims of Elder Abuse in Nursing Homes
Our attorneys skillfully handle abuse and neglect claims stemming from negligence or actions on the part of nursing home employees, including:
- Pressure ulcers/bedsores
- Falls and fractures
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Failure to treat illnesses
- Medication errors
- Exposure to the elements
Criminal abuse, such as sexual abuse or physical abuse
We are able to aggressively seek compensation for your loved one’s injuries, including compensatory damages, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. In more extreme nursing home abuse or neglect cases, we are sometimes able to recover punitive damages, which help to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar instances in the future.
Fully Invested in Obtaining Justice for You and Your Loved One
As dedicated attorneys, we truly care about reaching the best outcome for each of our clients. We will put our best efforts forward to obtain justice in your nursing home abuse and neglect case. We will obtain medical records and other evidence, talk to family members and witnesses, and involve nursing home administrators, doctors, nurses and other experts to provide strong testimony to support your case. We will always strive to hold the liable parties accountable for their actions.
