What does a nursing home lawyer do for you?
If you’ve observed these signs in a loved one and suspect they’re experiencing nursing home abuse or neglect, the next step is to notify the head of the nursing home and ask them to investigate. If you are considering hiring a nursing home abuse lawyer, it’s important to know what services are provided.
The primary goal of a nursing home abuse lawyer is to assist victims in obtaining financial compensation if they were harmed by anyone in a nursing home. Most lawyers who handle these cases, including Pallermo Law Group, work on a contingency basis, meaning there is no upfront charge. We will only get paid if we are successfully win compensation for the victim of abuse.
So what exactly does this process entail? At the first meeting, the objective is to determine if the victim and/or their family can take legal action. This is the resident’s opportunity to tell their story and discuss the circumstances of the allegations, as well as the full history of their nursing home care.
After the first meeting, an attorney will help navigate all the legal steps that are involved in a lawsuit. This includes filing the case, helping you gather necessary documents for evidence, negotiating settlements, resolving the lawsuit, and more. Attorneys also give victims a good chance at getting a settlement. Some big nursing home can hire expensive corporate attorneys, so having someone who is experienced in this area of the law will put victims on a more even playing field in court.
