As the U.S. population ages, more seniors are spending their later years in care facilities such as nursing homes and assisted living complexes. Sadly, some of these organizations are understaffed with poorly trained personnel. As a result, injuries and death from neglect and abuse happen far too often.
Because of the unique vulnerability that senior citizens and those living in skilled nursing facilities face, it is important to make sure that these institutions are accountable to those they serve. It is also critical that elderly loved ones receive the treatment and care they need and deserve. At Piering Law Firm, we work to obtain payment for injuries suffered in nursing homes and other facilities.
Contact us if your loved one has been a victim of abuse or neglect in a nursing home.
