Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence

Nursing Home AbuseThe oldest and wisest among us should be able to enjoy their golden years. Instead, too many of our friends and relatives in nursing homes are abused in uniquely harmful and humiliating ways, or they fall victim to accidents that could have been prevented.

Most nursing home operators and employees are kind, honest, and professional. The small minority that acts with malice or neglect can cause pain not only to the injured senior but also to family members.

What is nursing-home abuse?

Though many residents of nursing homes are loving grandparents and great-grandparents, the nursing home might view them as unruly children and thus treat them abusively. If and when younger family members — often the ones footing the bill — learn of possible abuse, neglect, or carelessness, nursing home administrators and staff sometimes shrug it off, attributing the “problem” to clumsiness or senility.

Former Insurance Defense Lawyer Will Fight For Your Rights

During the 1980s and 1990s, attorney Harry Williams worked for an insurance company defending auto accident injury claims. That experience provided him with inside knowledge of the tactics and strategies insurance companies use to avoid paying injury claims. Today, he only uses his knowledge and skills to help people who have been injured recover money for their injuries, medical bills, pain and suffering, and loss of normal life.

“The insurance company and its lawyers fought us for over 3 years. Harry Williams was everything I wanted in a lawyer.  He was compassionate, honest, knowledgeable, experienced, professional and unafraid of the courtroom. In the end, Mr. Williams prevailed against the insurance company and safeguarded my financial future.  I am thankful to God that Harry Williams was there to help me with my case.”
