McAllen and San Antonio Nursing Home Negligence Attorneys
Choosing to place an elderly relative in a nursing home can be an exceedingly difficult decision. However, most families are unable to provide the constant attention that elderly loved ones need, and they instead turn to nursing homes and assisted living facilities to fulfill this important responsibility. In these situations, families can take comfort in knowing that their elderly loved ones should receive better, more capable care and treatment in a designated nursing facility than at home.
Sadly, though, some nursing homes fail to provide the necessary level of care, instead allowing their residents to suffer from neglect and mistreatment. This abuse can have devastating consequences for an elderly individual, potentially resulting in serious injury or illness as well as psychological trauma. For this reason, nursing home abuse victims and their families are legally entitled to take action against abusive or neglectful nursing homes to secure compensation.
