Holding Dangerous California Nursing Homes Accountable For Their Victims
Most people who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities do so because they need help caring for themselves and attending to daily tasks. Nursing homes are paid a great deal of money to take on this important responsibility.
When nursing home staff neglect their duties or abuse a resident, the victim can suffer permanent injury and horrible trauma. Elder abuse in nursing homes can even cause a resident’s death. Led by founding attorney Douglas A. Schenck, The Schenck Law Firm has represented victims of nursing home abuse and their families for more than 20 years. Our office is in Newport Beach, California.
Highly Experienced With Complicated Nursing Home Litigation
Many times, elder abuse or neglect is the result of understaffing as the company that owns the facility tries to maximize profits by choosing not to hire enough staff to properly care for the resident population. Understaffing leads to gaps in care, which in turn can lead to dangerous conditions like:
- Bed sores
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Medication errors
- Residents wandering from the facility
- Improper placement in restraints
If your parent, grandparent or other loved one was hurt because there were not enough staff members to provide prompt and regular care — or if staff purposely abused him or her — Mr. Schenck can help you seek justice. He has the real-world legal knowledge necessary to take on multimillion-dollar nursing facility corporations and their legal departments. He will investigate what happened and gather evidence to show exactly why the nursing home was negligent in providing care, and how this negligence led to your loved one’s injuries or death.
