A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest and most vulnerable members. Over the course of decades, elder care has transitioned from the care in the hands of the family, to the hands of the corporations. Corporations have private interests and shareholders and, at the end of the day, primarily seek profit.
Today in the U.S., thousands of long-term care facilities house millions of elderly residents. Neglect and injuries are a persistent and growing problem. Given this unfortunate fact of life, we must be extra vigilant in the watching and caring for our loved ones in these facilities. While the federal and state governments have passed many rules and regulations to address elder abuse, nursing homes negligence persists.
We have experience handling a variety of nursing home negligence cases, including the following types of cases:
- Bed Sores and pressure ulcers, caused by nursing home neglect such as failing to monitor, treat, or diagnose the wounds;
- Over-medication, which occurs when a nursing home over medicates a resident to “chemically” restrain her;
- Assaults, such as situations where another resident, or even a nursing provider, assaults the resident;
- Trips, slips, and falls, resulting from failing to monitor or supervise appropriately a resident. In fact, many residents are injured, and sometimes die, because of avoidable falls in nursing homes.
We have learned over the years that the elderly in our society are just as important as any one else. Yet, nursing homes and their insurance companies do not place high value on elderly life, either by way of their treatment of them, or the money that they tend to offer for settlement. This is why we pride ourselves in aggressively and diligently representing the elderly, and we will fight only for maximum justice.
