Columbia Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

 

Lexington Bed Sores Injury Attorney

The elderly, sick and disabled are vulnerable to abuse and neglect in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other institutions that care for those who cannot live on their own and defend themselves.

The attorneys of Popowski, Callas & Shirley, P.A., in Columbia, South Carolina, believe that nursing home residents deserve to be treated with care, dignity and respect.

Advocates for the Frail and Vulnerable

We pursue appropriate treatment and financial compensation for victims of nursing home abuse and neglect. By doing so, we not only help our clients recover financial compensation, we also encourage nursing homes throughout the area to follow accepted standards of care for all of their residents. If we feel that the person is being abused, we want to explore all options of care for the individual, and that might mean moving from the nursing home facilities.

If a family member is a victim of nursing home abuse and neglect, please contact our firm to arrange a free consultation. You can rely on us to pursue justice as well as financial compensation.

We represent people who have suffered nursing home abuse and neglect in a variety of ways, including:

  • Bed sores can develop when patients are not repositioned frequently enough. Complications can be fatal.
  • Falling accidents can often be avoided when a fall prevention plan is in place and the facility has enough staff members to assist residents.
  • Physical abuse includes slapping, hitting, kicking or otherwise striking a resident.
  • Sexual abuse of vulnerable nursing home residents by staff or other residents is far too common.
  • Malnutrition and dehydration are common signs of nursing home negligence.

If you even suspect your family member is a victim of abuse or neglect, please call our office at 803-799-2100 to arrange a free consultation. Our injury lawyers can help you explore your options. If legal action is called for, you can rely on us to fight for your family member the way we would for our own.
