Nursing Home Negligence
Nursing home doctors, nurses and staff are held to a high standard of care, and for good reason. When we place our elderly relatives under the care of nursing home facilities, we need to trust that they will receive proper care and attention from long-term care professionals who are in charge of residents’ safety and well-being.
If you have suffered serious injury or illness or lost someone you love in a nursing home, rehabilitation center or assisted living facility, our lawyers can help. At Joel L. Katz, L.L.C., our Annapolis nursing home negligence lawyers have more than 125 years of combined legal experience. We will take the time to listen to your situation, provide you with an honest, accurate assessment of your case and aggressively defend your rights.
We represent clients throughout Maryland who have been harmed in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and inpatient rehabilitation centers as a result of:
- Elder abuse: When nursing home doctors, nurses and staff physically or emotionally abuse their residents, it is a serious violation of the residents’ rights.
- Negligence: Some cases do not involve intentional abuse or violence, but rather a lack of proper care in providing services. When budget cuts, insufficient staffing and failure to do adequate background checks lead to harmful errors, the facility can be held liable for the damages that result.
- Medical malpractice: In some nursing home cases, the problem is caused by medical malpractice, misdiagnosis or medication errors committed by doctors and other medical care providers.
