Advocates For Seniors Hurt Due To Nursing Home Negligence

The personal injury attorneys and nursing home lawyers at our Austin, Texas, law firm, have represented plaintiffs in a wide range of nursing home abuse and neglect cases including death cases, amputations, dehydration, wrong medication, hip fractures and sexual assault. We feel an important aspect in these cases is not only to receive compensation for the current victim but, by taking action, to prevent future occurrences to other residents. An action not taken today, places another vulnerable person at risk tomorrow.

Many elderly and disabled individuals are being subjected to nursing home abuse and neglect. Our personal injury claims lawyers are working to hold nursing homes accountable for the injuries and suffering caused by this blatant negligence. We have a long history of helping grieving families receive compensation for the pain, suffering and, often, the untimely and unfortunate deaths of loved ones. Our nursing home lawyers have received a number of significant recoveries for Texas nursing home neglect. The types of nursing home neglect and abuse with which we would offer legal advice include the following:

  • Abandonment
  • Assault, battery, beating
  • Burns
  • Decubitus ulcers
  • Dehydration
  • Falls
  • Fractures
  • Malnutrition
  • Physical or chemical restraint
  • Pneumonia
  • Pressure sores or bed sores
  • Sexual assault or rape
  • Unsupervised smoking
  • Wandering

If you believe you have a claim involving nursing home abuse, our nursing home lawyers have the experience necessary to evaluate and handle your case. Our firm handles injuries related to nursing home neglect, abuse and negligence throughout Texas. We urge you to call 512-306-1800 or contact our personal injury law firm online to schedule a free consultation. If we can’t help you recover money damages, you will not be responsible for paying us any attorneys’ fees.
