Tyler Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Attorney
People are most vulnerable during the early and later years of their lives. During our early years we have our parents to care for us. During our later years we have nursing homes. Unfortunately, nursing homes are profit driven.
In an effort to maximize their profits, nursing homes are increasingly guilty of providing inadequate care, maintaining an inadequate staff, and hiring incompetent employees. Nursing home abuse and neglect manifests itself in many ways. Bed sores turn into amputations. Poorly monitored residents wander away and get injured or killed. Unfit employees abuse or molest residents. Under staffing results in patients who need assistance falling and sustaining injuries. Inadequate care causes infections. Neglect causes simple infections to become lethal.
As an experienced Tyler Injury Lawyer, I understand nursing home cases can be difficult to develop because the victims are often unable to provide information and the nursing home employees are unwilling to come forward with information.
The key to developing a nursing home abuse or neglect case is thorough investigation. In one East Texas case my firm contacted in excess of 500 former employees of a nursing home in order to establish a long history of abuse of the nursing home's residents.
After more than twenty-eight years and thousands of personal injury cases there is virtually nothing that we haven't seen and successfully handled. There is no substitute for experience.
