Protecting the Rights of Vulnerable People in Florida and Nevada
Caring for our sick or elderly relatives can, despite our willingness and love, simply be beyond a family member's skill or ability. When care needs become more than family members can provide, it may become necessary to transfer the responsibility to a long-term care facility, such as a nursing home or assisted living facility.
Unfortunately, abuse and neglect often occurs in the very nursing homes that are responsible for the care of vulnerable residents. Many nursing homes are for-profit enterprises that put more emphasis on the bottom line than on adequate staffing and training. It is the residents who ultimately pay the price, and suffer from bed sores, malnutrition, dehydration, hip fractures, and even verbal, physical and sexual abuse. Sometimes, even death results. When these tragedies happen, an experienced nursing home malpractice attorney can help to get justice for you and your family.

At the Nursing Home Justice Center, we are dedicated to providing professional legal representation from compassionate Las Vegas nursing home abuse attorneys. We thoroughly prepare each case, taking it through mediation and all the way to trial if necessary. When we investigate, we rely on nursing, geriatric, and administrative experts who examine nursing documentation and dig into underlying staffing and financial issues.
As tenacious as we are at building an effective case, we never forget the human side to our work. Our office is a friendly environment where we sit down with families to carefully listen to their concerns, and to offer them comfort and support. We help families look at the warning signs of neglect in long-term care facilities, such as:
signs of continued weight loss
development of pressure sores/decubitus ulcers
unexplained skin tears, and bruises
emotional changes, such as depression, and fear
certified nursing assistants (CNAs) who are overworked
improper supervision of patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia
use of chemical or physical restraints
