Compassionate Representation for Elderly Victims & Families
As Americans are living longer lives than ever before, the proliferation of nursing home facilities has prompted many families to make the difficult decision of moving their loved one into a home that has the resources to provide daily care. Whether living in a nursing home is a personal choice or a decision dictated by health-related circumstances, all residents have the right to be treated fairly, safely, and with compassion. When families learn that their loved ones have suffered injuries as the result of preventable accidents or abuse, the experience that follows can be fraught with emotions and frustration. At Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C., our Washington, DC personal injury attorneys fully support elderly victims and families during this unfortunate time and strive to help them recover any damages they suffered.
Nursing home injuries can arise in many situations and in many forms. When elderly residents suffer any type of physical, emotional, or financial harm as the result of nursing home operators or employees, they have the right to take legal recourse and recover monetary compensation. Equipped with more than 85 years of collective experience, our legal team is intimately familiar with nursing home injury cases and the numerous difficulties they pose, including the reluctance or inability of victims to speak out.
