Nursing Home Injury Attorney
The decision to place a loved one into a nursing home or assisted living facility is usually a difficult decision.
Each and every year millions of American Families are confronted with the decision of whether to place a parent, grandparent, relative or loved one into a facility where their medical needs and day-to-day living needs can be met. We all want to believe that all of the care givers will provide the same standard of care we would give, but, the truth is that nursing home abuse and nursing home neglect is becoming an epidemic across the United States.
And now even worse, many Texas Nursing Homes, thanks in part to weaken Texas Health Care Laws, are providing more and more substandard care. And adding insult to injury, most Texas Attorneys will not even consider helping.

It is despicable, that each year in the United States, over 2.1 million seniors are the victims of some form of neglect or abuse. What is even more shocking is that for every case of nursing home abuse and neglect that is reported, there may be as many as five more cases that go unreported. That places the number at over 10 million acts of negligence or abuse each year.
Disturbing evidence now suggests that abused elders tend to die earlier than seniors who are well cared for, even in the absence of life-threatening and chronic conditions.Common Injuries:
- Unexplained bruises and cuts
- Broken bones
- Soiled clothing or bed linens
- Unsanitary living conditions
- Bed Sores
- Fractured Hips
