How can a nursing home abuse attorney help my mother after she has been physically restrained against her will?
While it may seem like you can handle things involving your mother, such as moving her to another facility where she will be safe and pursuing a claim against the nursing home for the abuse she endured, a knowledgeable attorney is going to be able to help you out tremendously. For example, turning to an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer will:
- Help keep your mother safe. A lawyer experienced in nursing home abuse will know what research to do in order to make sure your mother is moved to a reputable nursing home that doesn’t have any past or present abuse allegations.
- Hold the nursing home accountable. Lawyers with experience in these types of cases will know how to prepare your claim and what to do to make sure the nursing home and person(s) at the nursing home are held accountable for the wrongs your mother endured.
- Get your family the compensation you deserve. Victims of nursing home abuse and their families might not know how much their case is worth. When they try to settle their cases on their own, they typically receive far less money than if they were to have an experienced lawyer on their side who knows what the case is worth and will pursue it to the fullest.
