Oklahoma Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers Protecting the Elderly
Fighting for the rights and safety of your loved ones throughout the state
When you place your loved one in the care of others at a nursing home, you expect that person to be safe and secure. However, sometimes the people you trust to care for your elderly family members break that trust. If you suspect that physical, mental, or financial abuse is occurring at your loved one’s nursing home, you need to take action. Federal and state laws prohibit these behaviors and dictate processes for reporting and investigating abuse.
The Oklahoma nursing home attorneys at Stipe Law Firm are committed to assisting families who suspect that their elderly loved ones may be victims of abuse or neglect. We conduct a thorough investigation of the nursing home and staff to uncover the facts in the case. We understand what’s at stake, and do all we can to give you peace of mind and provide for your loved one’s safety.
Comprehensive nursing home abuse and neglect representation
Filing a claim against a nursing home is a complicated and sensitive issue. You need to be represented by a lawyer with the skills to get you the results you need. Our Oklahoma nursing home abuse attorneys represent clients throughout the state in matters relating to:
- Nursing home abuse. Nursing home abuse is shocking and shameful behavior. The abuse can be physical, emotional, or financial, and it is often unreported due to fear of retaliation or social isolation. Our lawyers are committed to holding the responsible parties accountable for these sickening acts.
- Nursing home neglect. Neglectful behaviors are often overlooked: sometimes there are too many patients and not enough staff, and sometimes families don’t know what the signs of neglect are. However, neglect frequently results in a decline in health and the eventual death of the victim. Our Oklahoma nursing home lawyers get justice for the victims of neglect.
- Filing a nursing home abuse complaint. If you suspect your loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse, there is a detailed process for filing an official complaint. Our skilled attorneys can help you properly file your claim and get your loved one out of harm’s way. Our team helps you get through this process and put a stop to the abuse.
