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, Johnson Greer Law Group 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. Our Georgia nursing home wrongful death attorneys fight 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 one of our experienced nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers.

Proving that your loved one suffered nursing home abuse and neglect resulting in death 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.

Our Georgia nursing home wrongful death lawyers have dedicated their careers to fighting for victims of elder neglect and abuse. We know where to find evidence that your loved one was not receiving the correct care or being properly treated and when filing a wrongful death lawsuit against a nursing home is necessary.

Focused on results

Our legal team reviews all medical records and other documentation, and identifies and interviews witnesses. We also regularly consult with medical experts as needed who can help us determine what really happened. Our attorneys know how to build a strong case that proves negligence occurred.

You may be able to recover a settlement or other financial compensation for certain medical expenses, funeral expenses and other damages, such as pain and suffering and loss of companionship. Filing a claim or lawsuit is also a way to hold the negligent parties accountable for what happened.

We offer compassionate representation and are dedicated to helping you get the best possible outcome. Our firm wants you to be able to focus on friends and family during this difficult time. That’s why we will take care of all the details and build a case to fight for justice for your loved one and reduce the risk of future nursing home deaths due to abuse and neglect.

We know what you are going through, but it is important to consult a Georgia nursing home wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. Nursing home wrongful death settlements and court decisions can take a long time to investigate, negotiate, and litigate. The state of Georgia sets a time limit for filing a wrongful death nursing home lawsuit or claim. Taking quick action allows us to build a stronger case before evidence is lost or destroyed or the memories of witnesses fade.
