Choosing a Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Lawyer
If you or a loved one has suffered a personal injury due to the abuse or neglect of nursing home staff, or if you suspect abuse or neglect may have caused the wrongful death of a loved one, you are strongly encouraged to consult experienced nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys right away to ensure that your rights are protected and that you get the compensation to pay for the damages that occurred and to help stop abuse and neglect of the elderly.
Dealing with a personal injury or the wrongful death of a loved one can be overwhelming. Hiring a lawyer to preserve the evidence and negotiate with insurance companies and other institutions will make this process more manageable and will give you peace of mind knowing that your legal and financial matters are in the hands of someone who understands the law and can protect you from exploitation.
While there are many excellent nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys, very few of them also have medical degrees. We understand the intricacies of medical malpractice law from both a medical and legal standpoint. Our knowledge of medicine, the business of medicine, insurance law, and how insurance companies work to deny, delay or undervalue claims allow us to effectively and aggressively represent our clients.
