Neglect, Elder Abuse and Mistreatment Should Never be Tolerated
Nursing homes are often understaffed and underfunded which can cause a number of problems. Nurses are over worked and over tired and thus may be unable to provide a high standard of care. Without adequate funding many nursing homes cannot provide a comfortable living environment. However, this is not the fault of the patients and yet they are the ones that are suffering from this neglect.
Regardless of the reasons surrounding the neglect, abuse or mistreatment, it is important that your loved one has a chance to speak out and gain compensation for damages caused by nursing home neglect. Our attorneys are qualified and experienced Minneapolis injury lawyers handling all aspect of personal injury, including those caused in a nursing home environment.

Most nursing homes are advertised as comfortable and safe places for the elderly to live. However, if the truth reveals that this is not the case, then you have the right to be concerned and demand justice. If you suspect that something is not right, then we can help. Some of the things to keep a watch for include a change in personality, sudden weight gain or weight loss, bruising or sores on your loved one’s body and a fear or anxiety towards the staff or the home in general.
