Attorney Fighting Nursing Home Abuse
Anyone with a loved one in a nursing home or care facility wants to believe that their family member is receiving excellent care. Our desire to assume the best and hope for the best in others is natural.
Unfortunately, nursing home abuse and neglect doesn't just occur, it occurs regularly. Worse, it can go undetected because the victims are sometimes unable to understand or communicate abuse and because the perpetrators work hard to hide their wrongful or negligent acts. In the worst cases, victims are unable to share information because they did not survive the abuse.
