New Braunfels Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Elder Abuse and Nursing Home Negligence Attorney Assisting Families Throughout Texas
In a perfect world, it would be possible for all of our loved ones to live at home. Often due to medical conditions or financial means, we need nursing homes and assisted living facilities to care for our loved ones. When entrusting a family member or loved one to a nursing home or assisted living facility, we assume that they will receive consistent, exemplary care in keeping with strict professional codes of conduct.
The truth, however, is much different. Each year thousands of residents are killed or injured while in the care of a nursing home or other care facility. The guilt and emotional trauma accompanying these events can lead family members to overlook their right to seek compensation and correct poor conditions.
An Immediate, Aggressive Response to Elder Abuse
Your first priority after a loved one is injured at a nursing home should be to remove them from the facility and get them appropriate care and medical treatment. At the Texas law offices of James Bettersworth, a nursing home abuse attorney can step in on your behalf – we can cut through the red tape of nursing homes and insurance companies to ensure the ongoing safety of a loved one. We can then thoroughly investigate the incident, assess injuries and establish the necessary link between the injury and the actions of doctors and employees.
We help clients with the following elder abuse issues:
- Improper training of employees,
- Failure to supervise employees and residents,
- Physical/sexual assault by employees and residents,
- Broken bones,
- Bed sores/pressure sores,
- Bed rail injuries, and
- Medication errors.
James Bettersworth understands the guilt and emotional trauma that accompanies an allegation of nursing home abuse. We work closely with family members throughout the process of investigating and filing a claim to ensure that they understand their rights, their responsibilities and the consequences of their decisions. When trust is broken, and our most vulnerable citizens are injured, you need a Texas attorney who knows how to negotiate or litigate a timely and successful resolution.
