How Can A Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer Help Me?
Our law firm pursues dignity for victims and justice for their families
If you've made the difficult decision to place a loved one in a nursing home, finding that he or she has been injured can be overwhelming. Cases of nursing home abuse and neglect leave us reeling mentally and emotionally, in addition to the physical injuries suffered by the victim. You may not know what to do next - and the nursing home isn't likely to be helpful.
That's why you need your own advocate. A nursing home abuse and neglect attorney can make a meaningful difference. That's why you need to contact The Law Office of George S. Johnson.
Having an attorney on your side can provide closure, peace of mind
Dealing with a negligent nursing home is never easy, but with your own advocate, you can begin the process of moving forward. Here's how attorney George S. Johnson can help:
- Investigate the abuse. It's often very difficult to find out what happened after an incident of abuse or neglect in a nursing home. Attorney Johnson's investigation will include medical, financial and hiring records as well as interviews with eyewitnesses. He'll put in the effort needed to find out what happened - and who was responsible.
- Help to prevent further abuse. Our top priority when we investigate a case of nursing home abuse or neglect is to stop it from happening. That may mean moving your loved one to a different facility. In addition, by taking legal action against the nursing home, we may be able to help break the cycle of abuse and prevent other families from suffering as yours already has.
- Handle negotiations. Nursing homes and their insurance carriers often hire teams of attorneys to dispute allegations of abuse and neglect. Attorney Johnson will handle those negotiations on your behalf so that you can focus on helping your family move forward.
- File a lawsuit on your behalf. Many cases arising from nursing home negligence settle out of court. But if the nursing home won't make your family a fair offer, we're prepared to go to trial on your behalf. This can be a long and difficult process, but we'll stand by you and advocate for you every step of the way.
No legal action can change what has happened to your loved one. But an experienced attorney can help you get invaluable closure and pursue fair compensation as you and your family seek to rebuild your lives. That's why it's so important to contact us as soon as you suspect a loved one may have been neglected or abused.
