Assisted Living Abuse & Neglect Attorney
Take a stand for your family's rights. Contact attorney George S. Johnson.
Abuse and neglect in assisted living facilities in Atlanta and throughout Georgia happens far more often than you might suspect. Instead of getting extra assistance, some residents find themselves seriously injured or sick due to inattentive or abusive workers.
Identifying wrongdoing can be difficult. Often, it's very subtle. Services promised in a contract (weekly cleanings, laundry service, etc.) might not be provided. Residents may be overcharged for items. Other times, the abuse or neglect is obvious (medications not administered, physical abuse, etc.) and the consequences can be very serious.
If your loved one has been harmed, you may feel overwhelmed and not sure about what to do next. What are your rights? Who should you contact? Fortunately, you're not alone. George S. Johnson is focused on fighting for the rights of injury victims and their families – and he has the case results to prove it. Located in the Atlanta area, attorney Johnson serves families in communities throughout Georgia.
What makes assisted living neglect and abuse cases different?
Assisted living and residential care facilities are different from nursing homes. Unlike those who reside in nursing homes, many residents in assisted living facilities live on their own in private apartments, condominiums or sometimes even individual houses in the same housing development.
In many cases, the people who live in these facilities cook for themselves and live independently. They simply need some extra help with certain tasks, whether it's mowing their lawns, cleaning their rooms or doing their laundry.
That's why it can be so hard to know if the facility is doing something wrong. The warning signs can be subtle. You can learn more about them and different types of neglect and abuse on the following pages:

"Why should I hire George S. Johnson to handle my case?"
Experience matters. That's especially true when it comes to hiring an assisted living abuse lawyer to represent you or a loved one harmed or exploited by workers at an assisted living facility. These negligent companies often deny any wrongdoing. Without an experienced attorney on your side, you might not obtain the results you deserve.
George S. Johnson knows how the legal system works in Fulton County and throughout Georgia. He has personally represented countless families whose loved ones have suffered because of negligence. And he's eager to meet with you and learn more about your specific case.
Don't simply assume that local or state investigators will take care of everything. They're concerned with whether the facility broke the law. An assisted living neglect lawyer is focused solely on your legal needs. This includes making sure you're financially compensated for any expenses associated with your abuse or neglect case.
While the majority of cases settle through negotiations, George is prepared to file a lawsuit and take the facility to court if necessary. We're always ready to go to trial - and that gives us the upper hand in negotiations with facilities and their insurers.
