Seattle Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers

When we put our older or disabled family members into the care of nursing homes, adult living centers or in-home care providers, we trust that they will be treated well and have a better quality of life than they would have on their own. When that trust is broken and we find our loved ones are being abused or neglected, the perpetrators need to be held responsible for their actions.

Safety and Security for Our Loved Ones

The Washington State legislature has identified a class of people who because of their age, physical or mental condition are considered vulnerable and has put into place certain protections and regulations concerning their care and well-being. The idea was to define what abuse and neglect are and then have a way to prevent this treatment as well as to hold people and institutions accountable. Actions that fall under this statute are:

  • Physical abuse
  • Mental abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Neglect
  • Exploitation
  • Financial exploitation

An institution that is found to be negligent in any of these areas opens itself to litigation on behalf of the client in its care by the client's family.

The lawyers of Johnson Flora PLLC are available to speak with you about the mistreatment of your loved one at 866-894-1906 or you can contact us online for more information.

Tacoma Attorneys Representing Victims of Elder Abuse

You may find that your loved one is covered in bedsores or bruises and the care facility or care provider brushes them off as "something that happens at his or her age." This may be an attempt to cover up abuse and neglect on the institution's part. Your family member should be healthy and well taken care of. After all, that is what you pay them for.

Listening to Your Story

Our Seattle nursing home neglect attorneys will sit down with you and listen to your story. We feel that keeping a smaller caseload enables us to give your case our full attention. We will research the treatment and medical records of your family member, speak with witnesses and facility staff and consult with medical experts on how your vulnerable adult should have been treated. We have more than 65 years of bringing medical malpractice cases to a successful conclusion. We will work vigorously to do the same for yours.
