Nursing Home Negligence
Each year the number of individuals in nursing homes and assisted living facilities increases, and each year thousands of these patients die or are seriously injured as a result of abuse or neglect. The leading cause of this substandard care is deliberate understaffing by corporations that place profit over the value of human life.
If your parent or loved one has been injured or died in a nursing home, it may be due to neglect or abuse. You are not alone in dealing with this difficult situation. The lawyers of the Hodge & Langley Law Firm will investigate on your behalf to determine if your loved one's injuries were caused by abuse or neglect, and if so, we will hold the facility fully responsible to obtain the compensation you deserve. Just as importantly the nursing home will learn that it can no longer put profits above lives.
