In New Mexico and throughout the United States, many people face circumstances that necessitate their taking up residence in nursing homes. This can obviously be an intensely emotional situation and finding just the right care facility is often quite challenging. Though no assisted living arrangement is perfect, nursing home residents have the right to reasonably expect that the care they are given meet with acceptable standards of safety and protocol regulations. Sadly, nursing home neglect remains problematic in many areas and often results in legal action when an injury has occurred due to negligence.
Many families currently rely on nursing home staff to protect the health and well-being of loved ones. The Harvey & Foote Law Firm is dedicated to representing victims who have suffered injuries because of substandard care in nursing facilities. If you are seeking legal guidance on behalf of a loved one who has been abused or suffered injury because of staff members' negligence, please request a free consultation through our office to discuss your situation.
Nursing home neglect might include physical, mental and/or sexual abuses of residents. Our experienced team of attorneys can help you seek legal accountability against all potentially liable sources whose apparent neglect has caused your family to suffer. Typically, the sooner you request legal help in such situations, the better because it is crucial to document an incident in as much detail as possible to collect the evidence needed to prove a claim.
At Harvey & Foote Law Firm in New Mexico, we work on a contingent basis. This means that you pay no fees unless we obtain a settlement or verdict on your behalf. To begin the process, we will launch a thorough investigation to review the facts of your nursing home neglect case, and offer sound legal counsel to recommend the best course of action to seek maximum compensation for damages.
