Our Nursing Home Abuse Practice

Nursing Home Neglect

Negligence or reckless actions by workers at nursing homes can result in bedsores, injuries due to falls, dehydration and malnutrition among patients. If you or a family member has suffered from abuse at a short or long term care facility, seek the assistance of one of our personal injury attorneys.

Wrongful Death

Neglect and inadequate medical care can risk the health and safety of the residents in the facility.  From the failure to treat serious staph infections or pressure ulcers to the failure to respond to calls for help, negligence at a residential care or skilled nursing facility can end in tragedy for families of elder abuse victims.

Whistleblower Report

Families of Medicare and Medicaid patients should consider reporting problems at the health care facility to the U.S. Government under the False Claims Act.  When the U.S. Government pays for nursing care that is essentially worthless, the claim for payment is fraudulent and violates the law.  The U.S. Government can pursue treble damages as a result of this conduct.
