Langsam Law LLP

Nursing Home Negligence

Reviewing the cases related to nursing home negligence or hospitals is a priority that needs proper monitoring and attention. It is also believed that inadequate nursing care results in medication errors and nursing home negligence attorneys can help in such cases to maximize recovery. Lawyers at Langsam Law investigate the entire scenario and hire qualified experts that can help with successfully resolving your nursing home negligence lawsuit. Each case is handled with utmost care and compassion, in order to reflect the probable result and also help nationwide nursing home corporations, which control the nursing home care facilities. Nursing homes often don't provide appropriate facilities that cater to patients' needs, which can result in negligence such as bed sores. A doctor can also be held liable in cases related to wrongful deaths. So if you’re looking for an experienced nursing home lawyer, Langsam Law is here to give you expert advice.

This burgeoning area of the law has become particularly relevant with the growth of nursing home facilities in response to our aging population. It involves a nursing home’s failure to provide an acceptable standard of care to its patients, resulting in injuries which may range from debilitating bed sores to amputation of limbs and even death. We are presently handling a case which involves a nursing home’s failure to properly diagnose the onset of gangrene in a diabetic 75 year old man, resulting in the amputation of both legs.
