Nursing Home Negligence
It is a sad but true fact in our state, but abuse of our elderly occurs all too frequently. The elderly are among the most vulnerable people in our society, especially when their living situations are such that they cannot defend themselves.
Nursing home abuse can take many forms, but all of it is tragic emotionally, physically, and financially. As our elderly population increases and our society and lives make it necessary to choose nursing home care over in-home care, we must be attentive in protecting the elderly from abuse. Knowing the signs of nursing home abuse and contacting a lawyer from the Olivio Law Firm, PLLC when abuse is evident, is critical in the fight against nursing home abuse and neglect.
Understanding types of nursing home abuse may go a long way to preventing it in our society, or at the very least protecting your loved ones from suffering its consequences.

My experience with Michael was remarkable. I was injured in a car accident, overwhelmed by my symptoms and inundated by paperwork. While I was trying to make a difficult decision related to surgery, Michael negotiated the highest settlement available under the law.
