Trusting a care facility to properly care for a loved one is difficult even under normal circumstances. During the COVID-19 pandemic you have been unable to visit. Access to or communicating with those in care facilities has been greatly restricted. Has the facility followed mandated protocols? Are residents’ needs being met?
When those you have trusted to care for a loved one betray that trust, and your loved one suffers, you have every right to be angry, and even scared. We will help make things right. If your loved one has been abused or neglected by their nursing home staff, our attorneys will review every detail in their case and fight to make sure no further harm comes to them.
Abuse: Cruel or violent treatment.
Neglect: Fail to care for properly.
