Nursing homes are held to high standards of care for their residents. In addition, all nursing home residents in Tennessee are protected by several rights, including the right to privacy; the right to dignity, respect, and freedom; and the right be fully informed of any medical decisions or treatment plans.
Whether it’s due to high turnover rates, poor staff morale, low pay, or inadequate training, nursing home standards of care and individual resident rights aren’t always upheld or respected. When that happens, residents may be abused or neglected, causing them to suffer from physical and mental ailments.
At Ponce Law, our Nashville nursing home abuse lawyers don’t tolerate nursing facilities that don’t prioritize the well-being and health of their residents above everything else. If you call us to handle your loved one’s nursing home abuse claim, you can count on us to:
- Prove the negligence or abuse occurred—Filing a compensation claim requires presenting proof that mistreatment occurred. We have years of experience helping nursing home victims and their families, and we know how to collect evidence that gets results.
- Negotiate to get maximum compensation—When insurance companies know they can’t easily deny claims, they often offer lowball settlements. We’ll fight to maximize your chances of getting full compensation for the suffering your loved one endured.
