Determining Liability In Pursuit Of Justice

Although nursing home residents can die even with loving and attentive care from staff members, other times, fatalities and injuries are the result of inadequate care. Many law firms may handle nursing home neglect claims, but the right lawyer will know how to prove if there is a direct causation between your loved one's accident and any negligent care.

At Gilder & Howell, Attorneys PLLC, we consult with industry-leading experts when preparing our personal injury claims for a favorable resolution. We know how to prove if substandard care was given and caused:

  • Bedsores or decubitus ulcers
  • Falls
  • Patient wandering
  • Restraints
  • Overmedication
  • Abandonment
  • A lack of timely care

We understand that these types of injuries may not simply be the result of negligent care; they may occur when nursing staff are abusing residents. We take these types of cases just as serious and will fight until justice is served.
