The Legal Help You Need When a Nursing Facility Has Harmed Someone You Love

When you made the decision to place your loved one in a nursing home, it was a decision you took very seriously. You most likely researched several facilities and felt you chose one that would take good care of your elderly parent, spouse or other loved one. If your loved one sustained injury due to neglect or abuse, you can take legal action to protect his or her rights and obtain compensation.

When nursing homes are more concerned about their profits than the people they should be caring for, this is a huge disconnect.

The Law Offices of Linda Ross in San Francisco provides compassionate and effective legal help to victims of neglect and abuse at nursing homes, assisted care facilities, group homes and other facilities offering skilled nursing care. We offer free initial phone or office consultations and handle nursing home abuse and neglect claims on a contingency fee basis. Call us now at 415-692-7689 or contact us online.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

People are placed in nursing homes when they can no longer care for themselves. They may need assistance with eating and using the bathroom. They are not as mobile or agile as they once were and require almost constant supervision. When nursing home workers neglect their duties, serious injuries and death can occur. Attorney Linda Ross is dedicated to seeking justice on behalf of the elderly.

Our law firm protects the rights of the elderly and holds negligent institutions accountable. We seek compensation for your losses and strive to ensure no other family has to experience what your family has. Talk to us about abuse and neglect in the forms of:

  • Bedsores and ulcers
  • Falling accidents/failure to assess for fall risk
  • Undiagnosed illnesses
  • Wandering off/elopement
  • Physical assault/sexual assault
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Inadequate medical care

Many occurrences of nursing home abuse and neglect are related to staffing problems. Our law firm uncovers the root cause of the neglect, from inadequate staffing to failure to perform background checks on nursing home employees.

Financial Exploitation of Elders

In addition to the physical injuries, nursing home residents can be taken advantage of financially. Our law firm handles claims that involve:

  • Annuities and life insurance fraud
