Injuries from Nursing Home Neglect

We actively investigate cases to prove that injuries or illnesses resulted from negligent care or intentional acts of abuse.

We can help you determine if your elderly loved one is suffering from:

  • Bed sores and pressure ulcers
  • Nursing home malnutrition and dehydration
  • Undiagnosed medical conditions
  • Nursing home medication errors
  • Failure to provide safety restraints
  • Excessive restraints as punishment
  • Failure to supervise Alzheimer’s patients
  • Failure to assist patients in activities such as getting out of bed and showering
  • Inadequate security, both keeping residents in and keeping intruders out
  • Physical assault or sexual assault by staff or residents

We have represented clients who broke hips, legs, or wrists because no one answered their calls for assistance in walking. We represented a woman who was allowed to wander out of the facility and was hit by a car. Another client on a liquid diet nearly choked to death from solid food. We’re passionate about protecting our clients.

Uncovering the Root of Nursing Home Neglect

Our attorneys obtain patient charts, prescriptions, and nurse logs to determine what care was provided or withheld. Negligent hiring, training, and supervision of employees may be grounds to bring a claim, as well as inadequate staffing levels and written or unwritten policies of administrators. We check the background of employees for criminal history or professional license sanctions, and research previous safety citations or lawsuits against the nursing home.

In short, we turn over every stone to hold nursing homes or assisted living facilities responsible for neglect and abuse. Contact Pierce | Sloantoday for a free case evaluation.
