Dallas Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Fort Worth Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer
Few areas of personal injury law inspire as much passion in our attorneys as nursing home abuse and neglect. Prior to the beginning of Frenkel & Frenkel, Scott Frenkel formerly represented many nursing home cases and medical malpractice cases on behalf of defendants. We all have parents and grandparents who are or may need care someday in a nursing home facility. All of us hope to live long lives, and we know that growing old may mean that someday we will need to live in a retirement home when we are no longer able to take care of ourselves.
Contact us to schedule a consultation if you need the advice of a knowledgeable lawyer after your elderly or disabled family member suffered abuse or neglect in a long-term care facility in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Lubbock or elsewhere in Texas. Your mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, husband or wife may have been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect if he or she suffered harm or died due to any of the following:
- Falling accidents
- Elder abuse, including sexual abuse
- Unexplained bruising
- Medication errors
We are career personal injury attorneys with previous experience as insurance defense lawyers. We literally have the playbook of our clients' legal opponents. We know what it takes to prepare and present a compelling case for full and fair compensation before insurance claims adjusters, judges and juries.
In addition, we understand your desire to ensure that other nursing home residents will not suffer the same injustice as your family member experienced while in long-term care. One aspect of a successful outcome of a nursing home abuse claim or lawsuit is a commitment on the part of the nursing home or long-term care facility to put preventive measures in place for the sake of future residents.
Did Your Family Member's Nursing Home Falsify Records?
We have often found chart falsification which has led to enhanced cases resolution. In one instance, the resident’s Care Plan said it discussed management of the patient’s phantom leg pain BEFORE the amputation actually occurred. They will be more careful next time.
Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation. We are willing to listen compassionately and advise you about the next course of action after an injury or death that can be attributed to nursing home neglect or elder abuse.
