“Slip and Fall” or “Trip and Fall” Injuries When you’re at a store, restaurant, or in any public area, you trust that the owner has kept it safe for you to walk around. Property owners who create or allow unsafe conditions can cause serious injuries to visitors in a slip and fall or trip and fall accident. Our attorneys know how to show that an accident was the fault of the property owner and help you get the money to cover the costs of your injuries.
Nursing Home/Assisted Living Facility Injuries From Neglect or Mistreatment. When the parent-child relationship gets reversed by age or illness, it’s agonizing. Just putting a parent in a home where they can get proper care can be heartbreaking. But it’s your worst nightmare when your mom or dad suffers injury or even untimely death because the home you trusted overlooks or ignores proper care and safety.
While state and federal law regulate these facilities to prevent tragedies, it’s not enough. Residents suffer from chronically understaffed facilities, unqualified providers, and substandard care.
Sadly, you can’t always expect the home to be totally honest or even helpful in answering your questions how your loved one suffered harm. When a resident gets hurt, sometimes the same employees who took mom or dad in with warm welcomes and reassurances offer only hurried meetings with short responses that don’t really address what you asked.
And facilities tend to fight these cases hard. Holding the facility accountable can be very complex, sometimes requiring several experts. If your parent or loved one gets harmed at a nursing home or assisted living facility, don’t look the other way. If you don’t speak up for them, no one will. We’ll work to answer your questions and see what can be done to vindicate the rights of the fragile person you trusted them to professionally care for.
Here’s free info that can help you spot whether your loved one suffers from improper care:
Medical Malpractice. We deeply admire doctors. But victim compensation is often the only meaningful way to deal with irreparable injury or death from substandard care. We have a select practice for these cases, limited to cases that:
- Do not involve a Spartanburg County radiologist, urologist, orthopedist or neurosurgeon.
- Involves permanent injury or death.
- Occurred no more than 18 months ago.
If your case meets these criteria, we welcome the chance to discuss it with you to see if it merits further investigation.
