Get the assistance you need to make a difference
Federal and state laws protect individuals placed in the care of nursing home staff. If you suspect your loved one is a victim of any kind of abuse or neglect, our skilled nursing home lawyers can help you file a claim efficiently and effectively.
At Stipe Law Firm, we provide legal guidance to families who need strong advocacy for their loved ones. Often, victims of abuse or neglect are not able to voice their concerns, either because they fear retaliation from the abusers or they fear isolation.
Our goal is to place your loved one in a safe environment and stop the abusive acts. We conduct meticulous research to prove your suspicions. We review nursing home reports and records, analyzing any inconsistencies and potential untruths.
