Due to the aging of the baby boomer generation, more and more people are entrusting nursing homes and other long-term care facilities with the safekeeping of our family members and loved ones. Many nursing homes are excellent places to live, and provide all the resources needed for a high quality of life and medical care. Unfortunately, all too often, elderly and disabled residents do not receive the kind of quality care and attention they need and deserve.
Many of the institutions that provide long-term care for the elderly are owned by for-profit corporations. In an effort to maximize profits, these institutions often cut back on staff or hire cheaper and less qualified workers in an attempt to save money. As a result, nursing home neglect and abuse continues to be a growing problem.
Failing to provide the necessary care and attention to our elderly can lead directly to serious injury or even death. For over 30 years, the national law firm of Lopez McHugh has successfully represented nursing home residents and their families. We are committed to protecting these vulnerable members of society by taking legal action to hold these institutions accountable when safety rules are violated.
