Montgomery Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Montgomery Nursing Home Injury LawyerThere is currently an epidemic of nursing home negligence sweeping the country that has the potential to grow even worse as millions of Baby Boomers prepare to retire. The Montgomery nursing home abuse attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC don’t focus solely on representing injured clients; but genuinely care about the state of the nursing care industry and how to make positive changes through education and legal action. One of the most effective means society has to combat substandard care is the ability to take our business elsewhere when learning of a center’s negative history. This is why we have assembled a list of the worst rated facilities in your area for your benefit.

Montgomery Senior Demographics

Montgomery has earned a place in history as the location of the first capital of the Confederate States of America, its involvement in the civil rights marches from Selma and the Montgomery Bus Boycott. It is the capital of Alabama and home to numerous state agencies and colleges. Its economy also flourishes due to the presence and influence of high-tech manufacturing companies such as Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama.

The city’s population of over 201,000 makes it the second largest city in the state and the senior population represents 11.8% of the total. Many more residents are soon to be counted as seniors with the imminent retirement of so many Baby Boomers in the coming years. Those seniors looking to maintain active social lives with their peers or to take advantage of the numerous classes and assistance programs offered can turn to the Crump Senior Center, which is situated in the heart of the city for ease of access to residents. Programs and activities include exercise classes, group games, concerts, plays, daily lunches, group trips and transportation assistance.

Primary concerns: The Golden Living Center nursing chain runs numerous nursing centers across multiple states.

There was no data available concerning this center’s staff, but if the chain’s other facilities are any indication, such data would only serve to lower this facility’s score.

When to Seek Legal Guidance

One of the most common questions that our Montgomery nursing injury lawyers entertain concerning abuse and neglect is at what point they should obtain legal counsel when suspecting the mistreatment of someone they care for. We are happy to offer advice at any point and actually believe that it is better to assuage fears rather than allow someone to continue suffering. The following signs are more definitive, however, and you should definitely move toward legal action if you notice them.

  • Your loved one’s environment appears dirty or you discover that your loved one’s hygienic needs are not being met.
  • Your loved one develops bedsores or existing sores worsen toward later stages.
  • Your loved one is admitted to the hospital and you aren’t satisfied with the explanation you are given.
  • You notice physical signs of abuse or neglect such as bruises, illness, infection or unexplained weight loss.
  • Your loved one begins to show sudden changes in demeanor such as rage, depression, anxiety or rapid mood swings. Another indicator is behavior that changes while in the presence of caregivers.

Client Reviews

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
