When Nursing Home Negligence Causes Death
Georgia Nursing Home Wrongful Death Attorneys: Prieto, Marigliano, Holbert, & Prieto, LLC.
Nothing is more devastating than the loss of a loved one. At this difficult time, contacting an attorney may not be your first thought. However, if you believe your loss may have occurred as a result of neglect, abuse or a nursing home crime, it is important to engage the services of a lawyer as soon as possible. While you might not be taking action, the nursing home or nursing home employee who played a role in the loss of your parent, grandparent or any other loved one, may be speaking with their attorney and colleagues in a concerted effort to raise a defense.
Perhaps more shocking is the fact that a negligent nursing home or nursing home employee may even alter charts, convince witnesses to rethink their positions or engage in attempts to taint or otherwise conceal incriminating evidence of their own failure to monitor patients, medication errors, abusive behavior or any other negligence that resulted in the wrongful death of your loved one. Contacting an attorney as soon as possible after you suspect negligence is always the best way to protect your rights.
Years Of Experience With Wrongful Death Claims
Tragically, a significant percentage of the nursing home abuse and neglect cases we handle involve fatal injuries. That is why our attorneys are aggressive and resourceful when handling wrongful death cases. Clearly no amount of money can bring back a family member who has been fatally injured, but it can be a source of relief and closure to hold negligent parties responsible for their actions. Moreover, our firm has witnessed that nursing homes will often take positive, corrective actions when a large settlement or jury verdict forces them to examine their processes and procedures.
