How our Atlanta lawyers can help you
Nursing home abuse and neglect cases in Atlanta are among the most complicated cases we deal with at our law firm. The reason why is that many nursing homes deny doing anything wrong. Instead, they often claim that such injuries or illnesses occur because the people living there are older and more susceptible to illnesses or injuries.
We know the truth. We know that some nursing homes cut corners to save money, resulting in serious injuries or illnesses. We know how to find the facts that matter. We frequently consult with experts and we’re prepared to do the work that needs to be done to uncover the truth.
