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.

Our case was against a Nursing Home for negligence, causing an untimely death. We were extremely impressed by Guy Thiessen and his staff. They answered all our questions timely any we were able to call them whenever we needed and/or wanted. They were thorough in getting the information needed, which resulted in a successful outcome. I pray that we never have to do something like this again, but if we do, we will definitely call Guy.

I was searching for an attorney because my mother was injured in a nursing home due to negligence.
A family friend referred me to Guy. When I met Guy, I felt very comfortable and knew he was trustworthy.
He was professional and personable from our first consultation until the case was settled.
Guy made a difficult time less stressful. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing legal services.

My family was involved in a major car accident while on vacation. I sustained a serious injury and didn’t know where to turn for legal representation. A family member highly recommended GT Law Firm, having hired Guy previously to represent him in a personal injury case that resulted in a large settlement. I felt at peace working with Guy and his team from day 1. He immediately took control of the case and went to work. His confidence truly eased my worried mind so I could focus on healing and recovery. He’s personable, doesn’t talk over your head and always keeps it real. He’s a great communicator — a quality I’ve learned is invaluable when choosing an attorney. He kept us informed throughout the legal process of any changes/progress made, checked in on us and was always available to talk, listen or give advice. My family (myself included) became pretty difficult to work with at one point during this process — legal, medical and financial matters have a way of bringing out the worst version of a person — but Guy handled it in stride. He was patient, he listened and eased our anxieties, all while fighting, advocating and negotiating on our behalf. He navigated the intricacies of this very complex case to ultimately obtain the best possible result for myself and my family. So if you’ve found yourself researching attorneys and scouring reviews because you’re in a position that requires legal representation, I know it can be overwhelming. Choosing the right attorney to represent you is a big commitment. It’s really the sole reason this non-reviewer is sitting here writing this review. I can say with confidence that anyone who hires Guy will be in good hands. He’s not only a talented attorney, but a man of integrity who has earned my total respect and endless gratitude. Best decision I could have made.

Guy worked tirelessly for my mom. My mom was a victim of severe nursing home abuse and neglect that in the end cost her, her life. When I first met with Guy and explained what had gone on and expressed the guilt I carried he was so kind and reassuring and explained that this is not acceptable and should be addressed. He fought for what was right and in the end helped to vindicate my moms death. I would hire Guy again in an instant, you will not find another attorney with the integrity and fight that Guy has.
