Nursing Home in America
As attorneys who represent individuals and families in nursing home negligence matters, we know that you can never plan for an incident where a loved one becomes injured or dies unexpectedly at a facility. During these stressful times, we appreciate the need to access concise and accurate information regarding the laws and regulations applicable to their care. The pages below have information on the laws, regulations and links to state agencies that oversee nursing facilities within each state. After accessing state pages, you may then refine your information by navigating to city-specific pages.
While there may be some situations that may be rectified with the intervention of a family member acting as a patient advocate, there are some situations involving patient injury or death that cannot likely be fairly resolved between you and a facility where an incident occurred. Our law firm is committed to providing you with the legal representation you deserve to hold negligent facilities accountable.
The decision concerning the engagement of a lawyer to represent the needs of your family is indeed a personal decision. While it is within your rights to refrain from any type of litigation, mistreatment or abuse of a nursing home patient should not take place in any facility— at any time.
Our firm represents individuals—never companies or corporations. Our nursing home negligence cases frequently involve:
- Development of pressure sores or bed sores
- Falls resulting fractured bones or internal injuries
- Medication errors
- Sexual abuse by staff or other residents
- Physical abuse or sudden injuries
- Untimely death of residents

As leaders in nursing home litigation, we have a trusted network of attorneys across the county whom we respect and trust. Even if our office cannot assist, we can help connect you with an attorney in your area who can assist you.
