Handling Nursing Home Neglect And Abuse Cases

If you are concerned that an elderly parent in a nursing home is the victim of neglect or abuse, contact the Winston-Salem law firm Comerford Chilson & Moser, L.L.P. We have extensive experience in the litigation of nursing home neglect and abuse claims, and we are prepared to discuss your family’s situation in a free and confidential case evaluation.

Our lawyers can investigate and present your injury claim in cases involving such instances of negligence or elder abuse as the following:

  • Errors in prescribing or administering medications
  • Untreated bedsores
  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Allowing physically or mentally infirm residents to wander the building or the grounds unattended
  • Falls from bed, wheelchairs, or in bathrooms
  • Physical or sexual assaults by other residents or by nursing home staff

We Know How To Prove Nursing Home Neglect

One case we settled involved a broken neck suffered by an elderly man with a history of cranial surgery who fell out of his wheelchair during a race organized by nursing home staff. Another case involved sexual abuse by an employee of the home.

At Comerford, Chilson, & Moser, we accept nursing home neglect and abuse cases on a contingent fee basis. We investigate and document your elderly relative’s injuries and damages, and present your claim for compensation. We collect an attorney’s fee only if we achieve a successful result through settlement or trial.
