There are very few privately owned and operated nursing homes in the state or in the country today. Most nursing home facilities are operated under their original names and are locally managed, but they are owned by major corporations that may not even be based in the United States. Nursing home abuse lawyers are all too familiar with how challenging it can be to get these corporations to admit that there is a problem within one of their facilities.
Understands the Process
When you work with specialized nursing home abuse lawyers, you are not just able to take full advantage of their legal knowledge and expertise, but you are also able to tap into their understanding of the nursing home industry. These professionals have often had past dealings with the same corporations and nursing home facilities, and can use that to their advantage.
In addition, nursing home abuse lawyers know which experts to call upon to help you prove that the abuse occurred. This can include medical experts and mental health professionals that can identify and explain the nursing home standards that have been violated.
Move Your Case Forward
One of the most common tactics used by the large corporations that own the facilities is to slow down the process and simply keep putting off complaints, or doing “in house” investigations that show no abuse is occurring.
Nursing home abuse lawyers know just what independent documentation or medical information is needed to keep your case moving forward, and what specific information to request to avoid these delay tactics.
You will also find that nursing home abuse lawyers, while always preparing to go forward with litigation, can also act as your representative to negotiate a settlement without the need to go to court. This will typically allow the case to settle in a matter of months, rather than possibly taking years to be tried in court.
This option can help you to get your loved one cared for or even moved to a different facility, if that is the best resolution. Often, in these cases, nursing home abuse lawyers can also negotiate compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, the cost of relocating the patient, and other expenses due to the abuse or the legal action that you were required to take.
As your nursing home abuse lawyers, we will fight to get your loved one cared for in a safe environment.
