Medical negligence cases encompass a variety of different problems that many people face and occur in all types of locations including:
• Long-term acute care facilities

• Group residence homes
In all of these facilities, there are a number of different scenarios where negligent behavior is evident. Our malpractice and negligence attorneys routinely handle cases involving:
• Medical errors
• Drug errors

Financial abuse through over billing and improper insurance filing practices is one of the most common types of legal actions our attorneys handle.
There are many causes of nursing home neglect including:
• Understaffed facilities
• Failure to communicate with the patient, family member and other members of the patient’s healthcare team
• Fraudulent concealment of mistakes
In many cases, incidences of abuse or negligence are not reported by the facility and family members are unaware of problems. Family members must be proactive in monitoring their loved one’s medical and financial care and report suspicious actions promptly. Our malpractice attorneys are able to help you investigate claims, examine medical records and develop a strong plan of action to compensate you for harms caused by another’s negligence.
