When your loved one enters a nursing home, you have every right to expect that he or she will receive the highest quality care possible. Unfortunately, many nursing homes do not have the staff to provide residents with the care and attention they need. If your loved one has been the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, contact a nursing home abuse attorney right away.
The most important thing after a nursing home injury is for the victim to have access to the medical care he or she needs. The Law Office of John J. Garvey, III handles a wide range of nursing home abuse and neglect cases, including:
While you and your family help your loved one on the path to recovery, our firm will conduct a thorough investigation into what caused the injuries. Attorney Garvey works with medical experts and life care planners in order to determine both the cause and the full impact of the injuries.
It may be unexpected, but sometimes nursing home residents are injured in assaults by other residents. It is important that residential care facilities know how to handle violent, aggressive residents in a non-aggressive atmosphere. While you may believe you have a case against the resident guilty of the assault, you may actually have a claim against the management for inadequate staffing, failure to properly train staff or improper placement of residents.
Family members are often the first people to notice signs of nursing home abuse or neglect. If you have any reason to believe your loved one has been the victim of nursing home negligence, do not hesitate to contact the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III for a free initial consultation.
