Wrongful Death In Nursing Homes

We fight for justice for your loved one

Many times, the final years of a loved one’s life are spent in a nursing home. While health problems are common among nursing home residents, nursing homes have a responsibility to give them proper care. When nursing homes fail to meet this responsibility and a resident dies unnecessarily, The Law Office of George S. Johnson, LLC holds them accountable.

A wrongful death can occur at a nursing home as a result of:

  • Medical malpractice
  • Falls
  • Malnutrition
  • Medication errors
  • Physical abuse
  • An accident as a result of poor supervision

Losing a loved one is difficult but losing a loved one due to negligence or abuse at a facility that is supposed to help keep them healthy and safe is even more upsetting. It is never acceptable when negligence leads to the untimely death of a nursing home resident. Nursing home abuse and neglect attorney George S. Johnson fights for families to help get justice.

When a loved one dies in a nursing home, you may be experiencing many different emotions. You are grieving your loss, but also feel that something wasn’t right. You may only have a suspicion that negligence led to your loved one’s loss but aren’t sure what to do next. That’s why it’s important to talk to us.

Proving that your loved one suffered a wrongful death at a nursing home can be difficult. Nursing homes and staff members will insist that they did nothing wrong, and insist that your loved one was at an advanced age and in poor health. Insurance companies are only too happy to take their side, because they know there’s a lot of money at stake.

Attorney George S. Johnson has dedicated his career to fighting for victims of nursing home neglect and abuse. He knows where to find evidence that your loved one was not receiving the correct care or being properly treated.
