Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
An estimated one in three nursing homes provides substandard care and more than 500,000 adults over the age of 60 are abused or neglected every year. If an elderly loved one has suffered injuries as a result of negligence or intentional wrongdoing in a nursing home or assisted living facility, it is imperative that you seek legal representation to ensure that their rights are protected and the responsible parties are held accountable. Among the causes of nursing home injuries are medication errors, negligent supervision, and physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. Elderly patients are often at the mercy of the caretakers who attend to them, and the nursing home has a legal obligation to provide a safe living environment. At Wendt Goss, P.C., our experienced legal team will thoroughly investigate your case to determine if you have a claim against the nursing home or one of its employees, and then negotiate a settlement or represent you at trial to ensure you receive the full financial compensation you deserve.
