Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence

When you place a loved one in a nursing home, you trust that he or she is receiving the best medical care possible provided by well-trained professionals.  Unfortunately, some nursing home facilities fail to provide a safe and secure environment for their residents.  Nursing home owners may be more concerned about their profit margins then about the care of their residents.  Such facilities are often understaffed, and the staff they do retain may be untrained, poorly supervised or overworked.  The end result: neglect or even elder abuse.  Residents may develop bedsores or life threatening infections.  They may be injured by medication and physician errors or suffer bruises or broken bones in a fall.  In the most egregious cases, your loved one may be intentionally injured at the hand of a nursing home employee.


If someone you love has been injured or has died as a result of neglect or abuse at a nursing home, we here to help you navigate the system and investigate all potential causes of your loved one’s injuries.  We are available to talk with you about your loved one’s condition  and help you start to find the answers to all of your questions.


We at Cooper Sevillano have committed ourselves to making our communities safer places.  Part of this commitment involves doing whatever it takes to prevent future harm.  We will aggressively pursue cases against nursing homes to ensure that you and your family receive the compensation you deserve and the nursing home is held fully accountable for the injuries resulting from its neglect or abuse.  Our attorneys stand ready to go to trial to both maximize your financial compensation and hopefully change the way nursing homes are run going forward.
