SERVING VICTIMS THROUGHOUT MARIETTA, GA
Our elderly loved ones are entitled to the best possible medical care available. When a family finds out that their loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse or negligence, the usual reaction is bewilderment and shock; this unexpected treatment of a defenseless elderly person is inexcusable and criminal. If a nursing home failed to provide your elderly loved one with an adequate level of care or if they were exposed to any degree of abuse or neglect, you must speak with a Marietta personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
Many nursing homes supply sub-par care to elderly adults. This is illegal and can cause irreparable physical and mental harm to senior citizens. We understand the anger and betrayal you may feel after finding out that your loved one has been injured by negligent nursing home staff. An attorney can help you establish the liability of the nursing home so that you can supply your loved one with the medical care they need and deserve. Our firm is dedicated to aggressively pursuing compensation for our clients. We will hold nursing homes responsible for the negligent actions they have committed.
