Inexcusable Neglect and Mistreatment
Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer Oklahoma City
Few things are more tragic than seeing your loved one abused or neglected in a nursing home. You have entrusted the life of your loved one to an institution that cares more about their own profits than the welfare of their residents. Our firm is dedicated to holding nursing homes and their operators accountable when inexcusable abuse and neglect occurs. The facts of nursing home cases are often terrible and we are experienced in dealing with the State and Federal regulations governing nursing homes, as well as the Department of Human Services which oversees their operation. These cases, and their victims, deserve experienced lawyers that will help your family find out what happened and compensate you and your family for your loss. You and your family deserve a serious law firm that is established and does not seek its clients through mass advertising. Our clients seek us out because we are experienced at what we do and know how to handle your case.
The Tawwater Law Firm has worked on behalf of the people of Oklahoma for more than 36 years. We have helped hundreds of people through the tragic experience of catastrophic injury and wrongful death due to nursing home abuse and negligence. Our past cases have involved a variety of incidents, including:
- Medication errors
- Improper use of restraints
- Failure to monitor patients and properly turn to prevent decubitus ulcers
- Failure to provide basic necessities
- Surgical errors and other medical malpractice matters
- Physical abuse and neglect.
Many complaints of nursing home neglect have to do with a lack of necessary attention for people in extended care. In many such cases, the responsibility lies less with the individual staff members but with the large companies that own the nursing homes. Such companies have been known to cut staff in order to cut costs, thus depriving their residents of a basic level of care. We know how to examine a nursing home using forensic accountants and other experts to determine what nursing home operators do to improve profits at the expense of patient care.
The Tawwater Law Firm will take on any nursing home company, no matter how large, that jeopardizes the lives of seniors. If your case is against a large nursing home chain like Beverly Enterprises, Sun Healthcare or Peak Medical Corporation, or against a local owner who owns a single homes, our attorneys are able to help. In nursing home neglect cases, we not only want to make sure our clients receive compensation; we also want to make sure that the nursing homes never victimize their residents again.
