Was The Nursing Home At Fault For My Family Member’s Injury?
When a person suffers a serious injury in a nursing home, family members want answers. Was the injury preventable? Was it caused by errors or neglect on the part of the nursing home?

We represent victims of nursing home injuries in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. We offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case.
Uncovering The Cause Of Nursing Home Injuries
Nursing homes often attempt to pass off nursing home injuries as the inevitable effects of old age. However, many injuries are caused by preventable accidents that someone failed to prevent. The reason we place our loved ones in nursing homes is because they need extra help and attention.
Our lawyers personally investigate every serious nursing home injury case so that we can fully understand what happened and hold those responsible fully accountable. We will:
- Talk with the resident
- Talk with other visitors and residents
- Talk to nurses, if we have access (nursing homes often do not provide access to nurses)
- Carefully review medical records
- Consult with outside experts when appropriate
The goal of this investigation is to determine what care your loved one received and whether it was commensurate with his or her needs.
