Our law firm has served the needs of northeast Georgia families since 1977. We’re well known for close personal attention to the needs of the clients we serve. The people who depend on us benefit not only from our legal experience and trial skills, but also from our willingness to support them through all of the challenges that a personal injury or wrongful death situation might present.

Skilled and compassionate client service in nursing home negligence cases

Nursing home negligence cases can be especially difficult. Our clients are often uneasy about trusting the care of their loved ones to an institution, and a nursing home or assisted living placement is usually a last resort for meeting needs that can no longer be addressed at home.

We work closely with our client families to investigate negligence or abuse claims and hold the responsible parties accountable. While the victims are usually elderly, the injured person might also be developmentally disabled or recovering from a serious injury in a convalescent center.

Our attorneys handle nursing home negligence and abuse cases involving such injuries as the following:

  • Severe bedsores
  • Physical neglect as shown by dehydration or malnutrition
  • Medication errors
  • Falling accidents
  • Injuries suffered while wandering away from the facility
  • Severe burns
  • Cases of physical or sexual assault by employees or other patients
