If you have an elderly relative or someone you care about who has been placed in a nursing home for their own protection and benefit and things went horribly wrong, call us today and let us make things right.
Nursing homes and long-term care facilities are supposed to provide a good alternative for the infirm and for the people who love them. When round the clock care and supervision is needed but can’t be provided by those within the inner circle, family members and friends invest a tremendous amount of time in finding the right spot that promises health professionals providing compassionate, attentive care, excellent service, and a safe, clean and healthy environment.
Nursing Homes Can Become Nightmare Scenarios
But in far too many cases, nursing home experiences that start out with the best intentions end up being nightmare scenarios. Loved ones turn up with unexplained injuries, confused, fearful, malnourished and worse. If you are concerned that a nursing home resident that you care about may be being abused, you need to get help quickly.
The nursing home attorneys at Danziger & De Llano have been serving those who have been taken advantage of for over twenty years. We are compassionate people who are dedicated to using the law to help those who have been hurt by those who are more powerful and who have caused pain and suffering. Call us today for a free consultation and let us explain how we can help.
Why Things Go Wrong in Nursing Homes
There are a number of reasons why things go so terribly wrong in nursing homes and why so many elderly, frail people end up being victimized. Nursing homes are a big business these days.
As the population continues to age and adult children find themselves unable to provide the care that their parents need, nursing homes promise round the clock attention, professional staff with knowledge of medications and the needs of the elderly, social interaction and more.
But far too often, nursing home owners and administrators are more interested in profit than in their patients. The demand for their service is so great that they are unable or uninterested in providing the kind of service that they promise. Their staff is often uneducated, overworked, underpaid, and unfamiliar with the care of the elderly.
They grow impatient, angry, and frustrated and lash out at the helpless patients who they have been charged with caring for, and there is nobody there to protect these vulnerable victims.
Why You Need a Nursing Home Lawyer
The abuse, malpractice and negligence that take place in many nursing homes and long-term care facilities are all illegal, and there are local, state and federal agencies that are responsible for preventing these horrors from taking place.
But with over 1.6 million people currently being housed in nursing homes and other institutions, these organizations that are there to keep patients safe are often overburdened.
Even when they are able to find abuses, in most cases the institutions are generally issued a warning and a small fine – far too small to make a difference to businesses that are charging astronomical fees for residents. The fines and penalties barely get the attention of the nursing home owners as they simply fill the empty bed with another paying customer.
At Danziger & De Llano, we understand that these unethical businesses are all about money, and we make sure that we get their attention by making them pay their victims for all of the expenses that have been incurred as a result of their abuse.
Medical expenses, relocation expenses, the costs of your pain and suffering and the suffering of your loved one, all of these items are used against the owners and administrators of the nursing home to make sure that just is done for you and your family and that the same thing doesn’t happen to another family in the future. We will pursue the highest possible compensation allowed.
