Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Nursing homes across the United States have made vast improvements over the years in the care of our elderly. There are, however, nursing homes that remain a dark dungeon, if not by their poor appearance and presentation, by their lackluster service and most unfortunately, their negligence. Nursing home abuse has been a long time problem and it is because of caring children that many of them are brought into compliance and cease to mistreat our loved ones.
The Dallas injury attorneys at the W.T. Johnson legal firm have tried dozens of nursing home abuse cases bringing to justice companies with a sole focus on profit and little focus on the wellbeing of the elderly they are paid to take good care of.
Why Does The W.T. Experience Matters In Nursing Home Abuse Cases?
The W.T. Johnson attorneys are experienced in handling the convoluted legal system that surrounds litigation against nursing homes in all of Texas. Nursing homes in Texas operate under tort-reform laws and along with these regulations, rigid limitations for compensation are put in place along with strict statute of limitations that once expired, prevent any Dallas nursing home victim from filing an otherwise perfectly viable personal injury claim. Should you find a loved one under less than expected care in a nursing home in Dallas, Fort Worth or metro area, it is imperative that you seek legal counsel as soon as possible, avoiding the expiration of a possible claim. Since the W.T. Johnson team has defended several cases of nursing home abuse in Dallas, your loved one will benefit from this experience and will enjoy the possibility of better care as soon as the verdict is read.
Who Should Intervene Should Nursing Home Abuse Be Identified?
If not themselves, usually the people responsible for nursing home residents are family members, often times, the children or close relatives to the resident. If the resident has a guardian other than a family member, it is important that someone with emotional vested interest in the wellbeing of the nursing home resident take part in the process of understanding whether or not nursing home abuse is taking place. Unfortunately, apart from loving ties usually common among family members, people have a tendency to deal with nursing home abuse with a dismissive attitude, or as a simple business transaction. Close family involvement in the life of a nursing home resident is also a factor in the quality of treatment the resident receives. If nursing home abuse is identified, the family member most closely involved in the life of the nursing home resident should contact an attorney immediately, as statute of limitations can quickly expire, leaving your loved one without any recourse.
