Douglasville & Atlanta Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Injury Attorney Represents Victims of Nursing Home Abuse

Trusting a loved one to the care of a nursing home only to find out that they have fallen victim to abuse and / or neglect is one of the greatest fears of families. Most people never want to think that it could happen. But when such fears become a reality, you need to seek legal representation from a Douglasville & Atlanta personal injury lawyer.

When your beloved family member has been mistreated or abused in some way in a nursing home, you need to take action immediately. It is not uncommon for nursing home workers to be underpaid, overworked, or improperly trained to deal with the demands of taking care of elderly patients. But this is no excuse for nursing home abuse or negligence. The repercussions of neglectful actions could cause potentially life-threatening health conditions, severe emotional trauma, or could result in your loved one's wrongful death.

No matter how you look at it, nursing home neglect is as serious act of carelessness, and at-fault parties must be held accountable for their actions. We can help. We care. Moreover, by seeking justice on behalf of your loved one, you could potentially be helping other people from falling victim to the same mistreatment.

Our Firm Provides Hope After Nursing Home Abuse

Has a parent or loved one of yours suffered neglect, abuse, injuries, or suffered wrongful death while in a nursing home? Do you suspect that your loved one is experiencing nursing home neglect? If so, you should contact one of our Douglasville nursing home abuse lawyers at the firm immediately. Nursing home neglect takes many forms but can generally be recognized due to some tell-tale signs. Signs and symptoms of nursing home neglect include:

  • Decline in medical services attributes to the patient's decline in health
  • Bruises, burns, or lacerations
  • Untreated bedsores leading to infection
  • Heavy administration of drugs or medication resulting in lethargy
  • Broken bones
  • Excessive weight loss or gain
  • Extreme personality changes

For a successful nursing home neglect claim to come to fruition, not only must you seek legal counsel as fast as possible, but your legal representative must be able to prove negligence on the part of the nursing home. Unfortunately, your loved one's injuries will not serve as convincing or convicting evidence alone. Your loved one deserves the best possible legal representation especially after being mistreated so badly in a nursing home. You owe it to yourself and to your family member to have solid legal representation, so consult a Douglasville & Atlanta personal injury attorney from our firm immediately.
