Valdosta Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Fighting Abuse and Neglect in Nursing Homes
You take your parent, grandparent or loved one to a nursing home or assisted living facility for compassionate care. You trust the facility to provide the highest level of care because that's what your loved one deserves. Now, your loved one is hurt or gone because the nursing home violated your trust and failed to provide proper care. You have the right to take action.
By exposing nursing home abuse and neglect, you may be able to help prevent other residents from suffering the same harm and treatment. Bringing a claim for Valdosta personal injuries or a Valdosta wrongful death caused by mistreatment, abuse, or neglect can also help you recover compensation to pay for the medical expenses, pain and suffering and other losses suffered by your loved one.
At the Studstill Firm, LLP, we have more than 30 years of experience. Our eyes are open to what happens in nursing homes in Georgia. We understand that many of these facilities provide fantastic care to residents. However, we are also aware that some homes not only fail to provide adequate care, but put residents in serious danger. We take these nursing homes on. We fight to hold these facilities accountable when residents are the victims of nursing home abuse in Valdosta and neglect.
Contact us to discuss how we can help you with your loved one receive compensation for the abuse or neglect suffered at the hands of a nursing home.
Holding Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities Accountable
At the Studstill Firm, LLP, our attorneys in Macon are well aware of what happens in nursing homes in Georgia. Unfortunately, too many nursing home and elder care facilities are more interested in making profits than they are in providing quality care to their residents and keeping them safe. We fight to hold these nursing facilities accountable when residents are the victims of abuse and neglect.
Our lawyers handle all types of Valdosta nursing home abuse litigation. Some of the more common cases involve:
- Inadequate care
- Nutrition and dehydration
- Bed sores
- Medication errors
- Physical abuse and sexual abuse
- Failure to diagnose and promptly treat a medical condition
- Understaffing and improperly trained personnel
- Overuse of medication or sedation drugs
Our personal injury and wrongful death lawyers will fully investigate the medical care and supervision provided to your family member or loved one. In cases of nursing home malpractice, we fight to recover full compensation and take measures to protect other residents from injuries or abuse.
