Nursing Home Abuse

When Do You Need a Lawyer for a Nursing Home Abuse Claim?

The quick and easy answer to this question is always. When you find out your loved one has been abused or neglected, you should always talk to a lawyer about what happened at the very least. Although not all instances of nursing home abuse or neglect result in possible compensation claims, many do. But without an experienced lawyer on your side, you may find it difficult to get the money you and your loved one are owed.

At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke nursing home abuse lawyers work hard to help abused nursing home residents and their loved ones get maximum compensation. We know that these claims are often emotional and painful, and we always handle them with extreme compassion, sensitivity, and care. There are few things more abhorrent than nursing homes not only failing to protect their residents, but also putting them in direct harm.

When we build nursing home claims for residents and their families, we do so with the goal of getting them money for all their expenses. These may include medical bills and compensation for pain and suffering, which can be significant. Many residents who were abused in their nursing homes face long roads to recovery not just physically, but also mentally and emotionally.

If your loved one was mistreated in a nursing home and you’re unsure of what to do next, call our firm. Our consultations are always free, and there’s no obligation to hire. Best of all, you’ll never see a bill from unless we get money for you. Contact us today for a free consultation to get started.
