When your family makes the difficult decision to place an elderly relative in a nursing home, it is reasonable to expect they will receive the best possible care.
Unfortunately, reality does not always meet expectations. Families rightfully feel wronged when a nursing home uses neglectful or abusive practices that injure their loved ones.
We are eager to help and assist you in holding the correct people responsible when you or a loved one is injured from a nursing home’s negligent or abusive practices.

Our client, Christine, fell victim to her nursing home’s neglectful practices. She fell out of bed and hit her head while in the care of a Grace Healthcare (now called Tucker Wellness & Rehabilitation Center) employee. Christine died from the injuries she sustained when she fell because of the employee’s lack of training.
Recently, a jury awarded Christine’s family $1.8 million for the pain and suffering Christine suffered before she died.
