Contact us today for personalized attention and vigorous representation. We handle nursing home neglect cases in New Orleans and surrounding communities of southeast Louisiana.
Many nursing homes and assisted living centers are under-funded and managed for maximum profit. The sad reality is that residents in these facilities may be neglected and mistreated. Immobile patients may not get even basic care, nourishment and medicine.
Our team has handled lawsuits against nursing homes for substandard care, negligence and mistreatment, such as:
Bedsores (pressure ulcers) from neglect of bedridden patients
Falling injuries (slip-and-falls, falls from a bed, toilet or shower)
Malnutrition and dehydration
Medical malpractice (failure to diagnose life-threatening conditions)
Physical and emotional abuse
Utter neglect (patients left in their own excrement, etc.)
