Areas of Practice: Nursing Home Negligence
Do You Have Questions About Nursing Home Neglect or Nursing Home Abuse? The Experienced Attorneys at Flexer Law Have Answers.
Nursing home negligence is appalling and unacceptable. It has serious physical, mental, and emotional health consequences, and can ultimately result in death. When your loved one is the victim of nursing home neglect, you have the right to take legal action. Filing a nursing home abuse lawsuit allows you to seek justice against those responsible for harming your loved one.
Elder abuse in a nursing home facility is typically the result of unfit caregivers. Employees at under-trained and under-staffed facilities can become frustrated and needlessly take it out on residents. This is unacceptable.
Regardless of the reasons for nursing home negligence, it merits legal restitution. A successful nursing home abuse lawsuit provides financial compensation for the injuries suffered by your loved one and can help pay for treatments and other costs.
