If you suspect a loved one has been the victim of elder abuse or neglect in a nursing home, you can and should take action. At the law offices of Dollar, Burns & Becker, L.C., we’ve built a reputation for our vigorous representation of victims of nursing home neglect.
Unfortunately, abuse and neglect in nursing homes is not uncommon, seriously injuring the people who are most vulnerable. That’s why we aggressively pursue maximum compensation for these tragic injuries when they occur. We hold nursing homes fully accountable when we find conscious understaffing, failure to provide proper training to caregivers and a culture that allows the abuse and neglect of our elders.
Trial lawyer Tim Dollar has tried countless nursing home negligence cases and attorney Tim Becker has considerable experience and expertise in this specialized area.
That’s important because 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 or neglect and can get to the heart of the matter quickly and effectively. Put our combined years of expertise to work for you.
Often our clients’ main objective is to prevent the same abuse from happening to others. We’ve been effective at requiring the nursing home to make specific changes in their nursing policies and procedures to prevent future abuse and neglect. The staff is then retrained to make sure the same abuse does not happen in the future.
Dollar, Burns & Becker goes the distance, whether in the courtroom with a jury verdict or outside of the courtroom, where we fight for fundamental changes to the nursing home industry. When it matters most, you’ll find sympathy, understanding, and extensive experience here.
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.
