Elder Neglect Lawyer Serving Families Across Texas
The Roper Firm, P.C., is able to help people harmed by any kind of neglect or abuse, including:
- Bedsores: Any time someone in a nursing home has a bedsore, it is likely evidence of negligence.
- Falls: Although falls are more common as people grow older, falls are often preventable. If someone you love was injured in a fall, the firm can look at what happened to see if the nursing home is responsible.
- Elopement or wandering: When people with dementia leave a nursing home without supervision, many bad things could happen.
- Malnutrition and dehydration: When individuals in a nursing home do not receive sufficient food or water, it can lead to compromised health or even death.
- Medication errors: Employees at nursing homes must take great care to make certain that each person in their care receives the proper dosage of medication. An overdose or failure to provide medication can have fatal results.
- Sexual or physical abuse: These incidents must be dealt with immediately and effectively.
However your loved one was injured, The Roper Firm, P.C., will fully investigate the cause of the injuries and how the nursing home failed to meet the accepted standard of care.
