Our Experienced Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer

Russell provides personal injury legal services catered to the specific needs of each client. He and his dedicated legal team use their skills and experience to assist families whose loved ones have experienced unfavorable treatment in nursing homes. It's not easy to place trust in outside professionals to care for your elderly loved ones, and the process can be emotionally and financially draining. If you've discovered that the facility you chose to care for your partner, parent, or another member of your family during their golden years has abused or neglected in any way, Russell can help you determine if you have a case to receive possible compensation.

What Constitutes Elder Abuse?

Typically, families choose to place their loved one in a nursing home so that they can receive the specialized, 24/7 care that they need and deserve. Proper care includes the maintenance of a safe and clean living environment, assistance with personal care, addressing daily and long-term medical needs, and treating elderly residents with respect and courtesy. Unfortunately, no matter how ideal a facility may seem during a family tour, there's no way to always be aware of what happens behind closed doors. Examples of unacceptable treatment in a nursing home or other care facility include, but are not limited to:

  • Physical neglect
  • Lack of communication
  • Physical or verbal assault
  • Emotional abuse
  • Unhygienic personal and living conditions
  • Withholding medical care

If you suspect that your loved one has been subjected to these or any other forms of abuse or neglect at their nursing facility, we encourage you to contact us right away.
