Nursing Home Neglect and Elder Abuse Attorneys
No fee if no recovery.
Was your loved one a victim of elder abuse or nursing home neglect? Before you hire a lawyer, consider this.
Nursing home litigation is one of the most complex areas of law. Any law firm that takes a nursing home neglect case must know a maze of Massachusetts and federal nursing home care laws and regulations. They have to know all the evidentiary issues backwards and forwards and need an in-depth understanding of medical and health related issues along with working relationships with competent medical experts. Health care liability claims also require an understanding of the nursing home budgetary process, medical technology, medical billing, nutrition and geriatrics.
Most patients in nursing homes are also dealing with multiple medical issues. Medical treatment is continuous and usually involves multiple medical providers and specialists, which creates mountains of medical records that contain complex medical concepts and terminology. Nursing home medical records are more detailed than other types of medical records and going through all these medical records is time consuming. An attorney cannot just dabble in nursing home abuse and neglect law.
