Nursing Home Abuse Attorney In Marshall County
We trust nursing homes and group living facilities to provide mental and physical care to elderly and disabled individuals. However, sometimes our trust is misplaced. When nursing home staff are negligent or abusive, it is the most vulnerable members of our community who suffer.
I am Don Thomas, Attorney At Law. At my firm, I help clients hold nursing homes liable for their abusive and neglectful behavior and obtain compensation for the injuries they inflict.
Located in Benton, my firm serves clients in Marshall County and throughout western Kentucky.
Stop Abuse. Hold Nursing Homes Liable For Their Bad Acts.
If your loved one was injured, or killed, due to nursing home abuse or neglect, I can help.
I am a serious and aggressive litigator. For more than 29 years, I have been representing clients in court. I know what it takes to build a successful personal injury case. I thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspected abuse. Were the facilities properly maintained? Is staff adequately trained? Was the patient being properly supervised?
Common forms of nursing home neglect and abuse include:
- Medication errors
- Pressure sores and ulcers
- Sexual assault
- False imprisonment
- Patient isolation
- Improper restraints
- Poorly maintained facilities
- Unsupervised activities
While no amount of money can make up for the physical, mental and emotional pain and suffering inflicted by nursing home abuse, financial compensation can help cover the expense of medical treatment and any costs associated with relocating a family member to a new facility.
Wrongful Death Claims
Clients often come to me after they suspect foul play caused the death of a family member who was in the care of a nursing facility. If a nursing home caused the death of your family member, you may have a wrongful death claim against the facility.
