Fighting For The Rights Of Nursing Home Residents
Throughout Georgia and across the United States, nursing home abuse and neglect lawsuits are surfacing at a higher rate than ever. Sadly, there is only so much you can do when choosing a facility where you believe your elderly parent or family member will receive sufficient care and proper treatment. It has become all too common for nursing home administrators and staff to betray our trust in reprehensible ways.
Have you visited your loved one in a nursing home and observed signs of abuse? Did a medical emergency seemingly come out of nowhere and defy any logical explanation? Perhaps your mother or father passed away suddenly and you suspect that prompt medical attention might have saved that precious life.
We Take Allegations Of Nursing Home Negligence To Heart — And Then We Take Action
At the Law Offices of Derek M. Hays in Lawrenceville, Georgia, we take allegations against nursing homes seriously and see it as our duty to expose negligent care procedures and outright elder abuse. Some commonly reported scenarios that indicate you should promptly find a lawyer you trust to investigate include:
- Hospitalization of a nursing home or assisted-living facility resident with signs of physical abuse or neglect
- The death of your loved one under circumstances that don’t add up, especially if you have had ongoing concerns about the quality of his or her care
- Your discovery of bedsores, malnutrition, dehydration or an untreated infection
- Verbal communication of distress or withdrawn behavior accompanied by unexplained physical problems
If It Happened To Your Beloved Family Member, It Will Likely Happen Again
Nursing home administrators are susceptible to job and profit pressures just like people in other businesses. As a result, some fail to properly complete background checks and supervise staff. Others cut corners when it comes to making sure residents receive the focused attention they require enabling falls, wandering, and other dangerous behaviors.
If you see something, say something — and say it to our legal team with confidence and trust. Our work together will begin with a free case evaluation, and you will not pay attorney fees unless we take your case and obtain financial compensation for you.
