Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing homes and other long-term care facilities are meant to provide a safe place for the elderly, who are often vulnerable to illness and injury. Too often, however, poor policies and substandard care result in neglect that can harm nursing home residents.
At Garmer & Prather, we are respected advocates for the elderly and their families. If you or someone you love has been neglected in a nursing home, you have the right to take legal action and protect your interests.
We encourage you to contact us for a consultation if you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of nursing home neglect, which may include:
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Pressure sores or ulcers
- Unexplained injuries, including bruises and broken bones
- Frequent falls
- Unusual behavior such as acting withdrawn
Many of our clients are hesitant to file a lawsuit against a nursing home or another negligent party. However, pursuing legal action is important because it can not only help you secure fair compensation for your losses, but also act as a safeguard to discourage similar conduct in other nursing homes.Experience| Dedication | Compassion
