The trust we place in the hands of nursing homes, hospitals and long-term care facilities makes it all the more hurtful when our loved ones are harmed in their care. If your loved one has been hurt by negligence or abuse, you can turn to the proven advocates at Blish & Cavanagh, LLP for the support and legal representation you need.
We focus this area of our practice on maximizing compensation for those who have suffered harm as a result of negligence and abuse. This includes pursuing personal injury claims stemming from issues such as:
- Decubitus ulcers (bedsores)
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Broken bones and bruises
- Sexual abuse
- Psychological and emotional abuse
- Medication errors
Who Is Responsible?
The answer to this question will be the key to your case. Our team of lawyers will thoroughly investigate the case to determine which entities played a role in your loved one's injury. Then, we will pursue compensation from all responsible parties, such as nursing homes that have made risky or illegal hiring decisions, pharmacists who have filled incorrect prescriptions and aides who have abused patients.
Putting A Stop To Elder Abuse And Neglect
We pursue maximum compensation on behalf of abuse and neglect victims, providing them with the resources they need to recover from injuries. The compensation also serves the purpose of holding negligent parties accountable and making an example out of those who would betray the trust of families who entrust them with the care of their loved ones.
