Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Tulsa Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Attorneys
More than 43 percent of the U.S. population age 65 and over will reside in a nursing home at some point during their lives.
When you choose a nursing home, you trust that your loved ones will receive proper care. However, often times that trust is broken and a resident is injured through nursing home abuse or neglect. Who will stand up to the large medical facilities who have betrayed your trust? Who will be there to make sure they pay for violating that trust?
Standing Up for the Rights of the Vulnerable
At the Laizure & Thetford Law Firm we have more than 25 years of experience and have recovered millions of dollars in judgments and settlements on behalf of families whose trust in a nursing home was betrayed by the neglect or abuse of their family member.
We have handled literally hundreds of cases of nursing home abuse and neglect. For example, we have recovered sizeable verdicts or judgments on behalf of our clients in cases involving:
- Bed sores or decubitus ulcers
- Falling accidents
- Medication errors
- Preventable falls that result in serious injury
- Failure to monitor a patient’s medical condition
- Intentional abuse
- Sexual assault
- Wound care neglect
These events can all result in catastrophic injury to or the wrongful death of loved ones.
The principles of equal rights shouldn’t change just because our loved ones have reached an advanced age. The generation of family members who are now reaching nursing homes have paid a great price for the liberty and freedom of our country and they deserve better when it comes to health care, no matter which facility you may choose for them.
