Nursing Home Injuries & Death

At the GT Law Firm, we understand that it is a very difficult time for families when their loved one is hurt or neglected in a nursing home or assisted-living facility and subsequently suffers a decline in health or even an early death. Abuse and neglect in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities occur far too often these days.

Signs of physical abuse include unexplained bruising, skin tears, and other mysterious injuries. Neglect occurs when the nursing home staff fails to provide basic care to prevent dehydration, malnutrition, and bedsores.  Neglect also occurs when the staff fails to provide enough supervision to keep the resident safe from harm.  In many cases, lack of proper supervision results in preventable falls, which often cause hip fractures, head injuries, broken bones, and death. It can also result in residents wandering or eloping from the facility unsupervised, resulting in injuries and death.

If your loved one has been abused or neglected in a nursing home or was injured in an assisted-living facility, contact us at GT Law for a free, no-obligation consultation.  We are committed to helping you find answers so you can have the peace of mind of knowing what actually happened to your loved one.
