If you have come to this Web page after a close family member was injured or died a suspicious death as a resident of a nursing home or assisted living facility, you have our condolences. At Ted B. Lyon & Associates, we understand the emotional pain people feel when a mother, father, husband, wife, son or daughter has suffered harm or died a painful death in an apparent nursing home abuse or neglect case.
We also understand you need more than sympathy at this point. You may feel compelled to seek a just outcome that will hold wrongdoers responsible. In fact, many families who seek out an attorney after a nursing home abuse or neglect case are primarily motivated to prevent similar incidents. Monetary compensation is a secondary motivation in many cases.
At the same time, families may also be left with many extra expenses to deal with, as well as loss of companionship of a beloved next of kin. They soon realize the need for a lawsuit to recover costs and compensate intangible losses associated with the sudden death of a loved one.
To learn how we can help you, call us at 866-576-3748 for a free consultation.
Is it Time to Consult With a Texas Nursing Home Abuse Law Firm?
Most families put their loved ones in nursing homes reluctantly, only after exhausting other options for care of the ailing or infirm aged or disabled family member. You may have conducted extensive research as you looked for the right place for your older or disabled parent or spouse or adult child to live. Perhaps the facility seemed clean and well-organized, and the staff seemed caring and competent.
However, before you knew it, your family member in a nursing home took a turn for the worse without a clear explanation. You may have voiced concerns to supervisors, only to have your misgivings disregarded. Then an accidental injury or death occurred. Perhaps your loved one fell and broke a hip, developed bedsores or became debilitated due to dehydration or malnourishment. Overmedication or another type of medication error may have been a factor.
When something doesn't seem right, this is an appropriate time to contact one of our Dallas County elder abuse attorneys. The Law Firm of Ted B. Lyon & Associates can help find out what happened and pursue compensation for the injured person or family members.
