What does a nursing home abuse lawyer do?
When you have learned that your loved one has been harmed in some way, your first thought likely isn’t that you want to go through the legal process of filing a claim. We completely understand that. Our nursing home abuse lawyer in Ashland, Oregon wants to be here to work through the legal claim so that you can focus on getting your elderly loved one to safety and finding them a nursing home that fits their needs and keeps them safe. Staff members at nursing homes have one important job: to protect the senior residents within the nursing home. This means not bringing harm to them in the form of:
- Physical abuse
- Mental Abuse
- Sexual harm
- Financial extortion
What will happen when we meet?
When we have our consultation, we will want to know as much about the situation as you can tell us. How long has your loved one been there? What signs of abuse or neglect have you seen? Do you have evidence or proof that this is happening? Does your loved one understand what is going on? Once we establish what has been going on, we will begin gathering evidence of our own so that we can begin filing your claim. Through this claim, we will work to show that:
- The nursing home and its staff had an obligation to give your loved one the care they needed.
- The nursing home did not give your loved one the care and security they needed and thus failed to meet this obligation.
- As a result, your loved one suffered from serious harm.
We know that this is a difficult time for you and your family. If you would like to call our office to speak with an Ashland, Oregon nursing home abuse lawyer, contact Andersen Morse & Linthorst now.
