HOW A NURSING HOME ABUSE ATTORNEY CAN HELP
Nursing home physical abuse cases can be complex. A nursing home resident who is physically abused may be uncommunicative or unable to describe an incident. Some victims are coping with illnesses that result in a loss of mental capacity such as Alzheimer’s. No matter what type of malady you are suffering from, you can work with a Santa Rosa nursing home abuse lawyer at The Law Offices of Freeman & Freeman for the help you need in seeking compensation for your recovery.
The nursing home may have hired someone with a violent criminal background or failed to take any action after receiving reports of a resident who is being abusive. Our firm knows how to investigate a physical abuse case by examining nursing home records and hiring practices, as well as interviewing potential witnesses. We work hard to make sure the nursing home is held accountable so your family can receive justice.
