Fighting for a Higher Standard of Care
Watching our parents, grandparents and other family members grow older can be stressful. We worry about their lives as the aging process eventually begins to take its toll. We strive to keep them living as independently as they are able for as long as possible.
Should complications arise, however, we may need to turn the care of our loved ones over to an assisted living, nursing home or long-term care facility. We expect these facilities to provide quality, thoughtful and compassionate care for our loved ones. While many of these places do provide excellent care, far too many do not. Unfortunately, the residents pay the price for a facilityâ€™s bad decisions.
Claims for Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
At the law office of Prieto, Marigliano, Holbert & Prieto, LLC, we hold the nursing home industry responsible for any negligence, abuse or substandard care suffered by residents. Our lawyers aggressively pursue personal injury and wrongful death claims against long-term health care providers who have failed in their basic duties to provide safe and medically appropriate care.
When our loved ones are allowed to succumb to bed sores, suffer from malnutrition and dehydration, are improperly monitored, experience slip and fall accidents or deal with the effects of medication errors, they are the victims of nursing home neglect and abuse. In extreme cases, physical and sexual abuse, financial abuse and wrongful death may occur at the hands of those we have entrusted to provide compassionate and professional care.
