Why hire a nursing home abuse and neglect attorney?

When our senior loved ones are under the care of a skilled nursing facility, we would like to believe that they are well taken care of and safe from harm. However, nursing home abuse and neglect occurs more often than most people realize. If your loved one suffered an injury as the result of mistreatment at a nursing home, it is important to consult with an attorney experienced in these matters.

Why do you need an attorney? When an injury occurs at a nursing home, whether it is the result of short-staffing, inadequate safety procedures or deliberate misconduct, it is often difficult for the resident’s family to get the full story. If a nursing home is not answering your questions about how your loved one’s injury occurred, consult with an attorney. It may be necessary to file a lawsuit and use the legal process to require the nursing home to produce evidence. The attorneys at Joyce & Reyes have substantial experience dealing with nursing home abuse and neglect, and we can advise you on whether or not you have a case and pursue the best outcome possible for you and your family.
