How An Attorney Can Investigate Assisted Living Facilities

Our law firm holds negligent parties accountable

Assisted living abuse or neglect is often subtle. Unlike nursing home residents, people who live in assisted living facilities still have a high degree of independence. The staff members at these homes still have a responsibility to provide a safe, caring environment. But when they fail in that responsibility and residents are injured, it can be difficult to prove negligence on the facility's part. That's where an experienced assisted living negligence lawyer can make a meaningful difference.

The Law Office of George S. Johnson specializes in holding negligent care facilities accountable, and that includes finding critical information to help prove liability. If you suspect a loved one was abused or neglected in an assisted living facility, we can conduct an independent investigation on your behalf. Here's what we'll review:

  • Hiring and Supervision Records. Assisted living facilities are responsible for hiring staff members who are qualified to do their jobs and training and supervising them to maintain a safe environment. Our investigation may find that the facility failed to conduct a background check or did not adequately train or supervise staff, leading to safety issues.
  • Financial Records. A review of the financial records could turn up evidence of overcharging, double-billing, billing for services not actually rendered or other forms of financial exploitation. We'll also look for any discrepancies between the financial records and treatment or medical records.
  • Witness Statements. Interviewing witnesses in an assisted living facility can be difficult because some residents may have difficulty remembering or articulating what they've seen. Moreover, assisted living residents may live in private apartments where potential witnesses are further away. Attorney George S. Johnson knows how to overcome those difficulties and find the evidence needed to hold the facility accountable.

Remember, the sooner we're able to start our investigation, the better. The assisted living facility may move to cover up or destroy evidence. Witnesses' memories may fade. If you have any reason to suspect abuse or neglect, we urge you to contact attorney George S. Johnson right away.

We're dedicated to helping you find the truth about what happened - and to holding negligent assisted living facilities accountable. Call (866) 904-6653 today for your free, confidential consultation.
