Because of attorney Joe Griffith's experience in litigating nursing home cases, he will be able to quickly pinpoint and review the relevant information contained within the abundance of paperwork from the nursing home. He is familiar with the specific types of documents maintained by nursing homes, the many federal and state requirements governing nursing homes and the issues unique to nursing home abuse and neglect cases.
For example, because of the advanced age or preexisting medical condition of nursing home residents, the nursing home often tries to argue that injuries were unavoidable or inevitable because of the resident’s health instead of the nursing home’s own negligence. However, if the nursing home’s conduct caused harm, worsened an existing condition or hastened the decline or death of a nursing home resident, thereby causing additional and unnecessary pain and suffering, the nursing home should be held responsible. Whether the nursing home’s failure to properly care for and treat your loved one resulted from corporate greed valuing profits over people’s welfare, systemic problems such as inadequate staffing of caregivers or simple human error, the nursing home has a duty to protect and care for each of its residents and should be held accountable for such failures when they cause injury or death.
