Georgia Nursing Home Abuse Litigation Attorneys Represent Families

Protecting seniors from abuse

Most nursing homes are conscientious about providing effective round-the-clock medical assistance in a compassionate, wholesome environment. However, any industry that cares for the frail is naturally vulnerable to accusations of neglect or mistreatment.

While neglect occurs more often than anyone would like, many claims are unsubstantiated. Because it is often the word of a nursing home worker against the word of an elderly person, sorting out the truth can be difficult. The nursing home abuse attorneys at Jason & Bradley, LLC provide representation to all parties involved in litigation over suspected abuse. Our attorneys bring claims for residents and their families.

Our attorneys handle cases involving accusations of a failure to provide proper and adequate healthcare or appropriate supervision, resulting in:

  • Injury or fracture from fall
  • Bed sores (pressure ulcers)
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Physical abuse
  • Mental abuse
  • Sexual abuse

Protecting seniors’ rights to safe, effective healthcare

Nursing homes are supposed to provide comprehensive and attentive care to our loved ones. When that care turns to abuse, however, the consequences can be devastating. Unethical nursing home staff prey upon the vulnerable and the frail. Compounding the problem, some patients have no family to witness the abuse or they suffer from ailments that prevent them from speaking out. Jason & Bradley, LLC helps victims of nursing home abuse obtain safe, effective healthcare and receive compensation for injuries suffered at the hands of negligent or malevolent nursing home staff.

We do not tolerate violation of patients’ rights. We demand compensation for their injuries, their movement to a safe place, punishment of individuals who are engaging in abuse and the immediate remedy of violations at the nursing home facility.

Rights under the Nursing Home Reform Act

The 1987 Nursing Home Reform Act (NHRA) established a minimum standard of care for all patients receiving care in nursing home facilities. Prior to passage of this landmark legislation, nursing facilities and care were largely unregulated. Unfortunately, abuse still continues. NHRA states that each resident should enjoy these basic rights while living in a nursing home facility:

  • Dignified existence
  • Self-determination
  • Privacy
  • Communication with people inside and outside the facility
  • Access to services
  • Freedom from physical abuse and neglect
  • Protection from misappropriation of property
  • Accommodation of medical, physical, psychological, and social needs
  • Freedom to file a complaint if rights are violated

Our attorneys are committed to making sure the elderly receive the care they deserve by advocating for victims of abuse, we hold nursing homes to a higher standard.
