Powell, Jackman, Stevens & Ricciardi, P.A.
Each day, elderly patients in nursing homes across the nation are abused and neglected by the very people who are charged with their care. Nursing home abuse and neglect cases are especially heinous because of the inherent vulnerability of elderly patients. If you or a loved one has suffered abuse or neglect at the hands of nursing home employees, you should contact an experienced nursing home abuse attorney to discuss the unique details of your case.
Often, nursing home injury victims are afraid to pursue a case against their abusers because of fear of retaliation from nursing home administrators and staff. An experienced attorney can help protect nursing home abuse victims against retaliatory treatment. That is why if you or a loved one has suffered abuse or neglect at the hands of nursing home staff, it is imperative that you contact a skilled nursing home abuse attorney immediately. Serious injuries have occurred from falls, bedsores, improper medication, and the failure to diagnose heart attacks and strokes. A medical attorney can help evaluate the case. Medical law is no secret. Employees in nursing homes are held to a standard of care to prevent foreseeable harm to their patients. When they fail to meet that standard of care, a nursing home abuse attorney can help injured victims receive just compensation for their physical, emotional and psychological injuries. Call me at Powell & Jackman, P.A., to evaluate your case, assess your injuries and get you or your loved one the compensation you deserve.
