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. Our nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers in Spartanburg are proud to help victims and their families navigate the legal system and pursue fair compensation.
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.

At Hodge & Langley Law Firm, we believe in practicing with integrity. That means we will never guarantee a particular outcome of a case no matter how strong the evidence seems to be in our client’s favor. Although we cannot promise to secure a particular dollar figure, we can help you understand the factors that might impact the potential value of your claim. They include:
The Severity of Injuries: The severity of your loved one’s injuries will play a major role in determining the cost of care and the extent to which they will recover medically. As such, your family member’s diagnosis will likely have a significant impact on the amount of damages being sought.
The Extent of Non-Economic Damages: Nursing home abuse victims often suffer tremendous pain and suffering and other non-economic damages.
The Nature of the Misconduct: Are punitive damages warranted? Our nursing home negligence lawyers can perform a thorough investigation to find out if a punitive award might be available given the nature of the liable party’s misconduct.
Other Factors: There are dozens of factors that might affect the value of a nursing home abuse or neglect claim. Examples include the amount of insurance coverage available and the life expectancy of the victim. Our nursing home abuse lawyers in Spartanburg will employ their proven knowledge and experience to help you pursue the highest recovery possible.
