When we place our loved ones in nursing homes, we expect their needs will be taken care of. All too often, residents suffer from malnutrition, bedsores, and other forms of neglect. In some cases, elderly nursing home residents are the targets of outright abuse.
At Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC, we know the signs of nursing home abuse and are adept at finding evidence that supports our clients’ claims. 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, we can put that experience to work for you.

It is almost unthinkable that a nursing home staff member would abuse a frail, elderly resident, but it happens. It is the responsibility of nursing homes to properly screen their employees to weed out potential threats. It is also important that they supervise staff members to protect residents from being left alone with dangerous individuals.
Nursing home abuse can also come from other residents. If roommates or other residents pose a physical threat to others, the nursing home staff needs to segregate those people from the general population. When nursing homes mix populations, your loved one could come in close contact with dangerous, unstable individuals.
When we take a nursing home abuse case, our first priority is to ensure that your loved one is protected from harm. Then, we pursue compensation for the injuries, pain and suffering, and other hardships your loved one faced. Also, our lawyers work to ensure that the perpetrators of such abuse are held accountable and others are protected from these harmful practices in the future.
Whether you come to see our nursing home abuse lawyers in Memphis or we travel to meet with you in your home or at the hospital, the consultation is free — no strings attached. Our phones are answered 24 hours a day.
We handle nursing home abuse and wrongful death cases on a contingency basis. We do not charge any legal fees unless we obtain a settlement or verdict on your behalf.
