This is a situation you never thought you’d be in. You or your love one has been the victim of nursing home abuse and you have a wide variety of questions regarding what it means, what to do next, and how to protect yourself in the process. Our attorneys want our clients to be as informed and confident in their decision as possible, which is why we’ve anticipated these questions.
Cases of neglect and abuse can sometimes be difficult to prove, but there are advantages in these types of cases. Nursing homes are medical facilities, which normally keep excellent records. In addition to this, we can consult with our team of forensic scientists, medical experts, and investigators.
During the course of the lawsuit, we strongly recommend moving your loved one to a facility where he or she will receive more solidified care. With the decades of experience we have in this area, we can help you navigate the process of moving your loved one during the course of the lawsuit and after.
With qualifying cases, we often work on a contingency basis, which means you are not expected to pay us a dime until we have secured your verdict or settlement.
This will depend on the level of evidence we are able to compile and the chances the oppositions are willing to take in the courtroom. Many of these nursing homes do not want to make public their forms of abuse and are agreeable to an out-of-court settlement. A testimony by you or your loved one may be required, depending on the circumstances.
If your case involves a wrongful death, we recommend getting in touch with a lawyer as soon as reasonably possible. While you are due your grieving period, nursing homes are known to destroy evidence, and the faster we can be aware of the situation, the more we can recover.
