Attorney Peter Goldstein understands how vigorously the insurance lawyers will fight nursing home abuse claims. We prepare every case for the long-haul, and expect every nursing home abuse claim to go before a judge and jury. Opposing lawyers know that our firm takes our commitment to truth, justice, and safety for nursing home residents very seriously.
Our Elder Abuse Lawyers is dedicated in providing aggressive and effective representation and has helped us earn a reputation for excellence among legal professionals and injury victims throughout the state of California and Nevada. We have handled nursing home abuse and neglect cases involving:
* Bed sores
* Falls and fractures
* Assault by staff or residents
* Dehydration and malnutritio
* Improper medication
In order to prove nursing home malpractice or abuse, your attorney must show that the negligent act resulted in an injury that would not have been sustained under proper supervision and care of staff and other residents. This generally requires handling complex details such as obtaining the facts and medical history of the resident, and collecting all relevant medical records.
These records then must be reviewed by the attorney, who evaluates whether the case will be sent to an expert in the specialty of elder abuse and medical malpractice medicine for an evaluation. If an expert gives an opinion that a definite link can be shown between a negligent act and harm or injury to a victim, then a case can be brought against the owner or manager of the nursing home.
