Nursing Home Abuse
Your loved ones deserve to be treated correctly.View transcript
MR. IRA SLAVIT: One of the more difficult types of phone calls that we receive is from someone who is a family member who is either a resident at a nursing home who was neglected or abused or possibly passed away. Obviously, that person and their whole family is overwhelmed by the sense of loss. Often there are no witnesses to what happened at the nursing home either. At Levine & Slavit it's important that we get all the records as soon as possible to preserve the evidence. And it's also important that we get a thorough investigation to see if there are laws other than negligence laws such as civil rights violations that may help the family get some sense of peace. We take these cases seriously. We are aware that there are other avenues besides just the negligence case that can be brought against a nursing home. If you or someone you know is in this type of circumstance, please give us a call. Ask for Leonard or Ira and we will discuss this with you as a free consultation.
