Protecting Nursing Home Residents From Neglect And Abuse
The elderly deserve dignity. In every case of elder care abuse we handle at The Lawrence Firm, PSC, we begin from that premise. Older people are among society’s most vulnerable people. Taking advantage of their inability to care for themselves goes beyond illegal to immoral.
Skilled care facilities have the obligation to provide skilled care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The nursing home abuse lawyers at our law firm have litigated on behalf of patients who were injured or who died a wrongful death from failure to provide basic care and follow basic safety standards. We represent clients in northern Kentucky and southwest Ohio.
The elderly are entitled to the appropriate physician and nursing care, medication, therapy and safety protocols. If you are a family member or friend of an elderly person who is not receiving appropriate care, talk with the lawyers at The Lawrence Firm, PSC.
Our nursing home abuse law firm has a nurse on staff and has a wide network of consulting physicians and nurses who serve as experts on standards of care. Examples of nursing home litigation cases we have handled include:
- Negligence in failing to restrain a disoriented patient
- Medication errors including wrong dosages and wrong medications
- Failure to diagnose and treat pneumonia
- Negligence in preventing and treating bedsores
- Nursing home errors
The Lawrence Firm, PSC, represents seriously injured people and the families of wrongful death victims in Kentucky and Ohio.
