Know Your Rights Regarding Nursing Home Neglect

When we send loved ones to a nursing home, we have a right to expect that they will be treated with kindness, compassion and respect. We have a right to expect that they will receive a high level of care.

Tragically, many nursing home patients receive substandard care. Due to understaffing, poor staff training and other cost-cutting measures, many nursing homes fail to provide the quality care that nursing home patients need.

If your loved one has been injured due to receiving inadequate care at a nursing home, contact The Helms Law Firm.

We Take Nursing Home Negligence Seriously

You have a right to be angry if a member of your family has been injured due to the negligence of a nursing home. You placed your trust in a facility and a team of professionals that was supposed to provide a high level of care to someone you care for deeply.

Nursing homes’ patients are particularly vulnerable due to age, injury or illness. When nursing homes cut corners and prioritize profits over people, they should be held accountable for their actions.

Put Our Experience To Work For You

Nursing homes’ physicians, nurses and staff are not likely to simply admit their faults. Nursing homes have insurance policies and are defended by experienced insurance defense attorneys who work on their behalf to deny liability and minimize the damages that accident victims receive.

Attorney Jeff Helms has been going up against the insurance companies and advocating on behalf of accident victims for more than 30 years. He knows how to analyze and value claims, investigate accidents to seek evidence that may demonstrate liability, and work with medical experts and other necessary expert witnesses to establish the full extent of damages in complex nursing home injury claims. You can rely on The Helms Law Firm to work diligently to protect your rights and provide the strong advocacy you need.
