Nursing Home Negligence & Abuse
Colyer Law Firm Nursing Home Negligence Services
Sometimes we trust the care of a loved one to nursing home or similar facility, and sometimes the nursing home’s actions fail to meet their basic needs. Some of these basic needs include food, water, clothing, hygiene, shelter, and essential medical care. At Colyer Law Firm, we have experience holding nursing homes responsible for a nursing home’s failure to exercise proper care to take care of its residents.
Nursing home abuse and negligence can cause physical pain and suffering, mental pain and suffering, emotional distress, and even death. Compensation may be awarded in the form of damages claimed as well as punitive damages if the court sees fit.
If you suspect a nursing home of abuse or neglect, it is extremely important to document everything. Such documentation that may be useful could be:
- Diaries kept by the resident
- Photographs of any injuries
- Notes summarizing conversations with residents or staff
- Photographs of medications given or prescribed
- Notes on personal observations of physical and emotional conditions
Colyer Law Firm offers free consultations to our potential nursing home abuse and neglect and promises honesty and transparency in discussing possible compensation and options to help them and their families. If you or a loved one has been the victim of nursing home negligence or abuse, contact us today.
