Even if nursing homes didn’t charge a dime for their services, you would still have the right to expect competent medical and personal care. But, nursing homes do charge a lot, and to get you to turn the care of a loved one over to them, they also promise a lot in return. Too often, however, nursing care providers fail to deliver on those promises.
Meanwhile, the nationwide chains that dominate the industry routinely post hundreds of millions of dollars in profits each year.
In our experience, we have seen the following as potential signs of nursing home abuse:
It can be difficult to discover that the facility or people you entrusted your loved one with is mistreating them. We can help you if you or a loved one has been abused or neglected in a nursing home.
At Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC, we know what the signs of abuse are and where to find the evidence needed to prove a nursing home negligence case. We know because our lawyers have been doing this kind of work for people in Memphis and the surrounding areas of western Tennessee, eastern Arkansas, and northern Mississippi for nearly 50 years. Today, the experience, knowledge, and resources we’ve gained from that can start making a difference for you and your family.
Too many residents and not enough staff. That’s the basic formula behind most of the needless injuries our attorneys have seen in cases of nursing home abuse or neglect. If you suspect that a loved one has been abused or neglected in a nursing home residence, call our Memphis nursing home abuse lawyers at (901) 526-2126 or contact us for a free consultation.
Since residents are so vulnerable and have so many important medical and personal care needs, nursing home abuse or neglect often has terrible consequences.
Our experience includes cases involving:
Our firm represented an individual who was a visitor at a nursing home who slipped and fell due to an unsafe and hazardous condition in the nursing home, injuring his foot and ankle. Although any knowledge of a dangerous condition was denied by the defendant, through extensive investigation and discovery, we were able to establish that the defendant did, indeed, have notice of the unsafe condition. This enabled us to successfully resolve the case at mediation for $195,000.
