Make Sure You Have A Louisville Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer On Your Side!
Nursing home abuse and neglect cases are among the most serious – and most upsetting – cases we deal with at the Shelton Law Group in Kentucky. You chose a facility to help care for a loved one such as a parent, a grandparent, and perhaps even a child who needs special care. You did so hoping the nursing home will provide the necessary, round-the-clock care that many residents require. That’s why it’s so distressing to discover that a loved one is being abused or neglected in a nursing home. It wasn’t your fault, but you need to take action to fight for the rights and dignity of your loved one.
At the Shelton Law Group, we can work with your family to help address all the various legal issues involved in your nursing home abuse or neglect claim, which may involve a wrongful death lawsuit. We’re familiar with the common nursing home abuse injuries. We’re also well aware of the signs of elderly abuse or neglect and the causes of abuse or neglect. These signs can sometimes be very subtle. That’s why it’s critical you have someone familiar with state and federal laws and nursing home regulations helping to build a strong legal case designed to succeed.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has established strict outlines for professional ethics for all employees in the nursing home industry. Primarily, nursing home abuse involves a specific action or intentional inaction by a staff member that causes harm to one or more residents.
Nursing home abuse and neglect cases can be especially complicated since they are often so hard to prove. The injured individual may be unable to communicate what occurred. In many cases, many nursing homes will deny any wrongdoing. They will insist they did everything they can to help insure the health and well-being of your loved one. At the Shelton Law Group, we know how to investigate such cases. We know where to look to find the facts. We know how to gather evidence. Most of all, we know how to win cases.
