Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing Homes Abuse and Neglect Attorneys
You finally make the decision to take your parent, grandparent or loved one to a nursing home or assisted living facility for compassionate care. You believe what they tell you and trust that they will provide the highest level of care for them. But then, the unimaginable happens. Your loved one is hurt or gone because of something that happened when you weren’t there, when you couldn’t be there. The nursing home violated your trust and failed to provide proper care. You and your family have the right to get answers. And you have the right to take action if it was neglect or carelessness or negligence.
In nursing home cases, it’s not about the money because the money can’t undo the harm that’s been done. But what it can do is prevent future harm to other residents in the same nursing home. By exposing nursing home abuse and neglect, you may also be able to help prevent other residents and families from suffering the same harm and treatment. Bringing a claim for injuries caused by mistreatment, abuse, or neglect can also help you recover compensation to pay for the medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and other losses suffered by your loved one and your family.
The nursing home abuse attorneys at the Studstill Firm, LLP bring nearly four decades of experience to nursing home abuse cases in Georgia. We know that there are many facilities out there providing high-quality care and a safe environment to residents. But not all facilities do. Some elder care facilities not only fail to provide adequate care, but put residents in constant serious danger and potentially subject them to unnecessary pain. It’s our goal to help the victims and their families impacted by this mistreatment by holding these facilities accountable when residents are injured or killed.
Holding Georgia Nursing Homes Accountable
It’s troubling when a nursing home or elder care facility is more interested in making profits than they are in providing quality care to their residents and keeping them safe. That’s why we’ve dedicated a significant part of our law practice to helping injury victims and their families.
Our lawyers handle all types of nursing home abuse litigation, including:
- Inadequate care
- Malnutrition 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 future residents from injuries or abuse.
