Negligence Occurs in Nursing Homes,
Assisted Living Facilities
Entrusting a loved-one to a nursing home or assisted living facility is a rite of passage most of us will face at some time. When that loved one is negligently cared for and suffers a serious injury, a claim for medical malpractice should be investigated.
Abuse and neglect of the elderly and vulnerable in nursing homes and other facilities occurs in many forms. Some types of abuse are obvious such as sexual or physical assault or financial exploitation. Others forms of abuse and neglect are less noticeable and are often the result of having fewer nursing staff and aides than are needed and required.
Staffing and training issues lead to many forms of avoidable neglect. We have prosecuted a wide variety of nursing home abuse and neglect matters, including physical abuse, sexual abuse, medication errors, dehydration, malnutrition, and other mistreatment resulting in decubitus ulcers (pressure sores or bed sores), infections, and wrongful death.
Our clients want to hold wrongdoers accountable and responsible for wrongful actions, to protect other residents and their families from maltreatment and substandard care, and to honor the dignity of a loved one whose safety and rights were disregarded.
The attorneys at SiebenCarey have earned a reputation for excellence and dedication. Our goal is to provide each client with the best representation possible. We believe that nursing homes should be held accountable for all the costs and harm caused by their negligence.
