Get the help of a compassionate nursing home attorney
When your elderly family member enters a nursing home, you expect them to be safe and cared for. However, when the staff fails to meet their duty, neglect can occur. Your loved one deserves to be treated with respect and to be protected from harmful behavior. If you believe a loved one suffers from nursing home neglect, the experienced team of Oklahoma nursing home neglect attorneys at Stipe Law Firm is prepared to stand by your side to uncover the truth and bring your loved one to safety.
The consequences of nursing home neglect
Nursing home neglect is the most prevalent form of nursing home abuse today. Unlike other forms of nursing home abuse, neglect results from the staff’s lack of action. Signs of neglect can remain hidden even upon multiple visits to a nursing home, but vigilant observation can allege the following:
- Unsanitary living conditions
- Unusual behavior
Our firm’s Oklahoma nursing home neglect lawyers can help you get to the bottom of these symptoms and determine if you have a case. We even help you in filing a nursing home abuse complaint.
Our legal team helps to stop the neglect
Our elder abuse attorneys are all passionate about advocating for the rights of the elderly, especially in cases of nursing home neglect or abuse. We work with you to determine whether the case constitutes neglect and who is liable for it. On the victim’s behalf, we seek compensation for:
- Wrongful death. If the neglect of the nursing home staff caused the death of your loved one, we seek wrongful death compensation and punitive damages. These punitive damages are designed to punish wrongdoers to ensure that they will not commit these acts again.
- Medical coverage. We fight to secure complete medical compensation to help reverse the damage done by the nursing home’s neglect.
- Pain and suffering damages. We seek damages for the pain and suffering experienced by the victim and by the victim’s family.
Our attorneys are well versed in nursing home law and want to help you pursue justice in your neglect case. That is why nursing home law has become one of our major areas of practice. Trust in our experience and commitment, and we will stand by your side from start to finish.
