There are hundreds of nursing homes throughout Tennessee, but they’re not all created equal.  Although many nursing homes are built to generate a profit, most still value resident health, safety, and security.

But when nursing homes are excessively profit-oriented, the owners and administrators can put residents in danger by understaffing, hiring inexperienced workers, and turning a blind eye to mistreatment of residents. This negligence can go on for years while residents suffer in silence. In some cases, it can even lead to residents becoming seriously ill, injured, or even dying.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville nursing home abuse lawyers know how serious mistreatment of the elderly and disabled can be. Residents are often in poor health or advanced age, and that makes them highly vulnerable to both abuse and neglect.

For example, residents may develop significant bruising and pain if they are handled too roughly by staff members. When residents don’t get enough food to eat and water to drink, they can become weak and dizzy, which can increase their risk of a devastating or even fatal fall.

It’s important for families to blow the whistle on potential abuse and neglect right away when they spot it. Going to administrators and managers doesn’t always work, as they often simply deny that anything is amiss.

Our lawyers know how to quickly and accurately determine when abuse or neglect is occurring, and we work hard to get residents and their families maximum compensation. Contact us today for a free consultation.

    Due to a personal injury accident, not my fault, I needed to find a lawyer to help me with my case. I chose Ponce Law due to TV advertising and proximity to my home. Throughout the process they were helpful explaining steps being taken. They were helpful in reducing some of the subrogation expenses which ultimately put more of the settlement in my pocket. Thank you to David Wyatt & Taylor Desmet for their assistance throughout this process.

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
