Our work on behalf of victims of nursing home negligence and abuse doesn’t end when we settle a case. Our nation’s elderly are extremely vulnerable and easy targets for neglect and abuse. That’s why, in addition to handling individual cases, we recognize the need to advocate at the local, state and national levels to prevent specific abuses to nursing home residents from happening again. Typical abuses are falsifying records, understaffing facilities and failure to properly respect the elderly residents in their care.
Few law firms have the kind of experience and long history of advocacy you’ll find at Dollar, Burns & Becker. Trial lawyer Tim Dollar has tried countless nursing home negligence cases and attorney Tim Becker has considerable experience and expertise in this specialized area.
There are very specific laws regulating nursing homes and assisted care facilities at the local, state and national level. There are very specific questions that need to be asked and research that needs to be done in the initial stages of a lawsuit.
The problem isn’t always with caregivers, but often with the misguided policies of management and/or ownership. We’ve represented thousands of victims of nursing home abuse across the nation and can get to the heart of the matter quickly and effectively wherever you are.
It’s important to contact us immediately if you or a loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect. Initial consultations are free and attorneys' fees on contingency. You can also report it to your state’s Department of Senior Services.
