Nursing Home Abuse

A Nursing Home Abuse Law Firm in Evansville, Indiana and Surrounding Areas.

It is always difficult to see the lack of care for older adults. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is all too common. Nursing home abuse cases can generally be categorized into one of three categories:

1) neglect, such as bed sores;

2) physical abuse; or

3) fall cases.

At Siesky Law Firm, we have handled all three types of nursing home cases. Indeed, Siesky Law Firm has prosecuted bed sore and neglect cases, physical abuse cases that involved healthcare providers being charged criminally, and cases where an elderly patient fell while in the care of a nursing home.

Accordingly, Siesky Law Firm has the experience and resources to help evaluate the nursing home case and to plan and execute a litigation strategy for the nursing home case.

Investigating a nursing home case differs from investigating other injury and accident cases. Nursing home operators often make it difficult to determine the correct legal names of the entities that own and operate nursing homes. Further, State and government agencies may be involved in the inspection and citation of nursing homes leading up to and including the incident in question in your case.

Also, the nursing home’s medical chart may have an “audit” trail that can be analyzed. There are MDS coordinators and other employees particular to a nursing home setting that may shed light on how and why the neglect, abuse, or fall occurred.

Siesky Law Firm has experience dealing with issues particular in nursing home cases. We are here to help with your nursing home case. If you or a loved one has suffered because of the actions or inactions of a nursing home, call Siesky Law Firm today. We can help.
