Omaha Nursing Home Negligence And Abuse Attorney — Medical Negligence
As “Baby Boomers” age, more and more Americans will reside in nursing homes. The average life expectancy of Americans has increased considerably over the last few decades. Americans live longer but not necessarily more active lives. Americans are increasingly dependent on caregivers for their twilight years, and the nursing home industry has grown dramatically as a result. Sadly, the number of accident and injury claims resulting from nursing home abuse, negligence and mistreatment of residents also has grown.
The personal injury law offices of Shanks Law Firm, are committed to holding nursing home owners and operators accountable for failing to treat residents with the care and dignity they deserve in their senior years. Our Nebraska nursing home negligence attorneys have extensive knowledge of state and federal regulations relating to nursing homes. Nursing home neglect and mistreatment can cause serious harm to residents, and a successful lawsuit is often the only way to make the abuse stop. We help victims and their families recover compensation for the abuses and harm they suffer when nursing home staff and management fail to follow the rules and regulations that govern their industry. When a resident is injured or dies as a result of improper treatment, we seek damages the law permits to compensate the resident or family.
If a loved one suffered neglect or abuse at a nursing home or senior treatment center, please remember that he or she may not be able to stand up for his or her own rights. Contact the Shanks Law Firm, to schedule an opportunity to talk to us.
