If Your Loved One Has Been Injured, We Can Help

Elderly and incapacitated nursing home residents rely upon the professional care of nurses, nutritionists, physical therapists and others. These professionals are required to follow a standard of care that includes maintaining precise records, reporting falls, and turning residents in their beds or wheelchairs to prevent bedsores. Our attorneys understand the pain and anger that can accompany a nursing home neglect claim. While you are most concerned about making sure your loved one recovers, the financial compensation you seek will help cover expenses and also send a message that could very well prevent this from happening to another family in the future.

We are skilled trial lawyers who have secured six-figure verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients. Our firm strives to hold negligent parties accountable for their harmful actions. If your family has been affected by any form of nursing home neglect or abuse, we can help you.
