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.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
