Handling Cases of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect in Georgia
As our parents and other family members grow older and are no longer able to care for themselves, many of us entrust them to nursing homes or assisted living facilities. We do so with the expectation that our loved ones will receive diligent care and attention from the nurses, aides and other staff.
Sadly, some nursing homes are owned by companies that care more about profits than patient care. This often leads to short-staffing or hiring poorly trained staff. In turn, residents are frequently neglected or even abused by overworked and harried employees.
For more than 70 years, Garland, Samuel & Loeb in Atlanta has been diligently representing Georgia clients who have suffered serious injuries because of the recklessness or carelessness of others. We have successfully tried or settled numerous cases, obtaining judgments of more than $9 million* for clients. Call us at 404-975-0459 for a free initial consultation and case review.
