Nursing Home Negligence Attorneys
Serving San Antonio, Texas
Finding a suitable nursing home for an aging relative can be difficult. Many elderly people need only a little assistance with certain day-to-day activities in their homes. Others need more extensive and ongoing care, the kind that can only be found in an assisted living facility or nursing home where their families can rest assured that their loved ones are being treated with care and looked after properly.
Placing your loved one in a nursing home is often a difficult decision to make. When you do, you expect that they will receive the care that they need and deserve. But many times this does not happen and nursing home residents are subjected to neglect and mistreatment. Poorly trained staff, understaffing, broken equipment, and errors in the administration of medication are also common problems that can lead to serious injuries, illnesses, psychological trauma and even death. For this reason, if your loved one has been the victim of neglect or abuse at a nursing home, there are legal options that you can and should pursue to recover damages and hold the responsible parties accountable.
