There is no greater loss than the death of a loved one. Unfortunately, a wrongful death lawsuit can't bring back your loved one, but it can help compensate you for your loss when their death was the result of a wrongdoing. Whether the death is a result of a workplace accident, an auto accident or even medical malpractice, we can help. Many of our clients have expressed concern and stress over the idea of initiating a lawsuit so soon after their loved ones death; however, our experience tells us the following:
Families often learn years later the emotional and financial impact a death can bring - by then it's too late.
A competent and compassionate attorney will try to resolve the matter in a delicate and tactful manner.
Delay in bringing a lawsuit can result in lost witnesses, missing records and additional legal hurdles.

Although many nursing homes provide fantastic care, far too many don't. Untrained or overworked employees, unsafe conditions and overburdened doctors can lead to mistakes. Even worse, sometimes our elderly population is a target for abuse which can be physical, emotional or financial. Some examples of neglect and abuse might include:
Non-accidental use of physical force against a vulnerable adult
Improper use of drugs
Improper use of physical restraints
Falls due to caregiver negligence
Preventable pressure sores
Unexplained / Undocumented bruises or physical injuries
Intentional neglect or isolation of a vulnerable adult
Financial abuse including extortion, check fraud and unauthorized access to accounts

As attorneys who also deal in elder issues, we can approach your case from every angle to make sure your loved one is taken out of harm's way. In addition, we have the ability to provide fiduciaries, handle estate planning and navigate the Probate Court as it relates to any recovery that might be obtained. Consults on nursing home abuse are always free and we are never paid unless you or your loved one recover.
