Nursing Home Neglect

Help With Nursing Home Neglect Cases

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  • Unusual behavior such as acting withdrawn
  • Overmedication

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

Clients appreciate the care and attention our lawyers devote to their cases and families, as well as our strong record of success in litigation involving nursing home neglect. In a recent case involving nursing home misconduct, our firm, led by respected plaintiff's attorney Bill Garmer, secured a jury verdict of $8 million for a victim's family.

Holding Care Providers Accountable for Abuse and Neglect

To confront the suffering of your loved one and take action against nursing home neglect, please contact us. We offer a free consultation, either by phone or in our offices in Lexington, Kentucky.
