Part of the challenge involves understanding the culture at some nursing homes when family members are not around.

Our lawyers have years of experience handling nursing home liability cases and those involving medical malpractice.
We immediately report nursing home abuse and neglect allegations to state authorities for a thorough investigation. After that has been conducted, we review the state's findings, outlining any deviations from the recognized standard of care.

We develop strong legal arguments with details highlighting how an accident victim is special or unique. We carefully define the person, not just the injuries. We provide evidence about the life of the victim, noting his or her family relationships and role in society. We seek maximum compensation based on the value of the accident victim to their family and the community.
