Homewood Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Our Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You Hold Responsible Parties Accountable
We put our faith and trust in nursing home caretakers. When we find out that our loved one is being neglected or abused, it can be especially painful. The elderly population is particularly vulnerable to mistreatment, and abuse at the hands of healthcare professionals and nursing home staff members is more common than we would like to think.
At Panio Law Offices, we can help you hold health care professionals responsible. We do this by helping you file a claim for the compensation your loved one needs to heal and move forward.
We Handle All Nursing Home Abuse Cases
Just as is the case with some hospitals, many nursing home facilities fail to put patient care first. When healthcare providers and nursing home caretakers put profit over their patients, neglect and abuse can occur. Additionally, the elderly community can suffer from debilitating conditions like dementia and Alzheimer's, making speaking out against abuse difficult for them.
However, if you’ve discovered that your loved one is being mistreated by their nursing home caretakers, you do have options, and you can hold the doctors, nurses, staff members, and nursing home facilities accountable for their actions.
At Panio Law Offices, we handle all kinds of nursing home abuse cases, including:
- Frequent falls and/or dropped patients
- Malnutrition, including dehydration
