At the Mercy of Negligent Care Providers
Making the decision to put an elderly family member in a nursing home or assisted living facility is never easy. Although we expect our loved ones to receive optimal care in these facilities, this is often not the case. When something goes wrong, it is critical the elder care facility is held responsible.
The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, acts swiftly to investigate the facility’s standard of care and past violations, and determine if the substandard care meets the threshold of neglect. We aggressively pursue monetary damages and can help families find another facility to provide the level of care their loved one deserves.
We represented the family of a person who died of dehydration because the air conditioner malfunctioned and the room temperature rose to 110 degrees. We obtained wrongful death damages for failure to monitor the resident. Our law firm has secured numerous verdicts and settlements against supervised care facilities.
