Washington DC and Maryland Nursing Home Accidents and Injuries Law Firm

Nursing Home injuries are far too common and largely due to poor training of workers. Many nursing homes are poorly staffed with insufficient numbers of personnel available to care for the vulnerable population of elders. The workers who are available are often overworked, fatigued and unskilled.

Many nursing home corporations pay their workers a very low wage. This makes it difficult to attract highly skilled and experienced talent.

The lack of pay for the front-line nurses and workers occurs against a backdrop of high pay for senior managers and enormous profits for the large nationwide nursing home corporations.

We expect a lot from nursing homes when we entrust our loved ones with their care. And our elders deserve no less. 

Nursing homes have a duty of care to their patients and residents and are required to ensure their safety and well-being. If you believe that your loved one has been injured or neglected at a nursing home, please contact us immediately.  

Our firm represents individuals and families in nursing home abuse and neglect cases. We have the experience of going up against large corporations and insurance companies in order to right these wrongs. If a nursing home caused your loved one’s injury, our experts and lawyers will find the evidence. Our job is to then hold the negligent actor responsible for causing a serious injury.

Contact us for a full investigation in order to determine whether negligence was the cause of the injury. If there was negligence, we will find the evidence. And we will attempt to make sure there is compensation for all damages, including pain and suffering.

When Should I Contact a Lawyer?

There is a time limit for initiating a personal injury lawsuit. In Washington, D.C. and Maryland you have three years from the date of the injury to make a claim.  Wrongful death matters are treated differently in the District of Columbia where the time limit is two years. In Maryland, there is a three-year limitation on wrongful death cases.

These types of cases require extensive investigation including attempting to determine ownership and control documentation and prior complaints. They often require a detailed review of all medical and health records. So it is very important to move quickly if we are to pursue a cause of action against the responsible party. If you wait too long, you may be unable to file suit. 

When you reach out to us, your personal injury attorney will thoroughly analyze your case and conduct a full investigation to determine what went wrong.
