NURSING HOME
NEGLIGENCE

Atlanta Nursing Home Negligence Attorney

Nursing homes are in the business of caring for people who cannot take care of themselves. This is what they are paid for. When they fail to do this, and the result is an injury to an elderly person, the nursing home should be held accountable. This is important not only in terms of getting compensation for the victim, but to prevent the same acts of negligence from occurring again and again at the same nursing home.

At the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm, we take aggressive action against Atlanta nursing homes in cases involving elder neglect or abuse. If your elderly loved one has been hurt at a care facility, we will take action to get full compensation.

Why Did the Neglect Happen?

While a thorough investigation is often necessary to prove exactly what happened, it is often very clear what the root cause of the neglect was. A nursing home that does not have sufficient staff or that hires poorly trained staff cannot expect to properly provide for the needs of elderly people. Unfortunately, nursing homes do this all the time in an attempt to save money and protect their bottom lines.

Briggs Winston We handle nursing home abuse cases involving:

  • Bedsores and infections
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Falls
  • Medication errors
  • With more than 20 years of experience on our side, we know the importance of reviewing videotapes and gathering every piece of evidence in order to prove our case.

Bedridden patients are susceptible to a number of health conditions that mobile patients typically are not. This can be especially true for patients who don’t have the ability to move themselves or roll over on their own. One of the most prominent of these conditions is bedsores. Bedsores are blisters that can develop when a patient stays in one position for too long without being moved.

Patients who are prone to bedsores need to be moved regularly in order to avoid excessive pressure, especially on the shoulder, hip and pelvic bones. By receiving this basic but critical care, nursing home patients can avoid these painful and often problematic injuries. If your loved one has developed bedsores while under the care of a nursing home, you should speak to a personal injury attorney to learn more about your legal options and if you have a claim for damages.

Seeking Maximum Compensation for Your Loved One’s Injuries

Also referred to as pressure ulcers, bedsores can progress into severe wounds that destroy healthy flesh and muscle if left untreated. The worst part about these injuries is that they could all be avoided if the nursing home staff would take the time to help their residents to roll over on a regular basis. Failure to do so creates avoidable and unnecessary pain and suffering for your loved one.

We know the standard of care that nursing homes are held to, and we are here to hold them accountable when they fail to meet it.

Wrongful Death
“My husband died in a terrible trucking accident, leaving me a widow and my son without a father. The trucking company (that killed my husband) initially refused to accept responsibility for my husband’s death. I hired Winston Briggs and turned everything over to him. During this very difficult time, Winston took total control of the case and filed suit in federal court in Virginia.

“While cycling with a group in Roswell, I was hit by a car, resulting in emergency hospitalization for multiple injuries, two surgeries, and months of rehabilitation. The driver, who was charged with improper passing, was uncommunicative, as was his insurance company.

I sustained injuries when I was hit by a car riding my bicycle. The driver contended I was at fault for the collision. In researching attorneys, W. Winston Briggs came highly recommended as a personal injury trial attorney. I hired Mr. Briggs and his firm took over my case.
Cyclist Bruce Fernald, Atlanta, GA
I injured myself requiring surgery when I fell at a hotel in New Orleans while on business. The insurance company for the hotel initially denied responsibility for my injury and then later offered me only a modest sum to settle the case, claiming there were multiple problems with my claim. I retained Winston Briggs to handle my claim and he did the rest.

I have been fortunate to find (surfing the web) W. Winston Briggs Law Firm to take over my case after almost a year of being with a “highly recommended season” attorney who was unable to serve the defendant, claiming he was “too big to be served,” here in Atlanta?
