Attorney Representing Victims of Nursing Home Abuse in Alabama
Nursing home negligence can be very difficult to overcome for those who have suffered at the hands of their caregivers and for the families of the victims. This type of negligence may involve physical acts of abuse, emotional abuse, or negligence and the failure to provide for basic needs, such as feeding patients, attending to personal hygiene or repositioning them. Care center neglect is a type of medical malpractice, and the care facility and staff could be held liable for any injuries or deaths that occur because of careless actions. Unfortunately, abuse and neglect in nursing homes have become a serious problem, in many cases because workers are underpaid and poorly trained. If your loved one is residing in a care facility and has shown signs of abuse or when you believe that your loved one has suffered neglect, visit with a nursing home abuse attorney from Cartee & Lloyd, Attorneys at Law, in Tuscaloosa. We’ll work with you to get justice for your family.
