Advantages of Having Lawyers Who Are Also Doctors

Serving Phoenix, Scottsdale and all of Arizona

Nursing home abuse and neglect cases require a thorough understanding of both medicine and the law. In fact, a competent nursing home abuse and neglect attorney should understand medicine as well as, or better than, the law. Our firm has several lawyers who are also doctors who have a sophisticated understanding of medicine, the business of medicine, insurance, nursing homes, and the many complex legal issues that surround each of these industries. If you or a loved one resides in a nursing home and you suspect that abuse or neglect has taken place, you should contact our experienced nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys right away to explore your legal remedies.

The Importance of Understanding Medicine in Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Cases

Winning or losing a nursing home abuse and neglect case depends heavily on the fine details. Our attorneys know how to interpret medical records, resident care plans, medication records, and fluid management orders. They know what to look for in a patient’s chart that might indicate malpractice. They have an intimate knowledge and understanding of the standards of care that are to be maintained by physicians, nurses, and other medical personnel.

Furthermore, our attorneys know what responsibilities nursing home directors and administrators have to their residents. Understaffing and poorly-trained staff are among the leading causes of abuse and neglect in nursing homes. Our attorneys know the mistakes that poorly-trained employees are likely to make, and know through first-hand experience the consequences of an understaffed healthcare facility.

If you live in the Arizona area and believe you have a nursing home abuse and neglect case, please contact the experienced nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys at Cullan & Cullan today to arrange your case evaluation. Our attorneys are also doctors who know how to fight for your rights.
