It is almost never an easy decision to place a loved one in a nursing home, but many times it is necessary so that he or she gets the constant care that only nursing homes can provide.

Serving The Victims Of Nursing Home Neglect Across North Florida And South Georgia

Nursing home care is a 24-hour-a-day job, and the nursing home's administration must ensure that patients are fed on time, that fluid intake is monitored, that medication is administered properly and that facilities are safe. When they fail at their responsibilities, patients can suffer from:

  • Bedsores
  • Falls
  • Dehydration
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Death
  • Broken bones
  • Bruises
  • Verbal, physical or sexual abuse
  • Serious skin infections

And while many younger people may be able to recover from these afflictions, it is important to remember that these conditions can lead to potentially fatal problems in someone who is sick and elderly, like infection, pneumonia, dementia and organ failure.

Unlike many personal injury law firms, our attorneys have a broad network of doctors and medical experts across the nation who they can call on to prove that your loved one is receiving poor treatment. We have the resources and knowledge that you need to improve your chances of securing compensation.

You Are Not Alone. We Will Stand Up For Your Loved One.

Too many cases of nursing home neglect and abuse go unreported, but we at Barnes & Cohen treat these cases with the seriousness they deserve.
