Houston Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys
Most Nursing Home Injuries are Preventable
When we entrust a parent or other relative to a nursing home, we expect that he or she will be properly cared for and not come to harm. Nursing homes are required by law to uphold certain standards of care for all patients. Staffing shortages, poor training and the desire to make a profit can get in the way of meeting these standards. If you believe your family member has suffered an injury at a nursing home that was caused by negligence, you need to consult with a Texas attorney handling medical malpractice cases.

Everyone at our office has sympathy for what you and your injured family member are going through.

We know what your loved one has been through and how it has affected all of you. We are more dedicated to a successful outcome because we care about what happens to all of you.
More Common than Many People Think
Nursing home negligence is unfortunately a regular occurrence. When families find their loved ones being mistreated, the nursing home administrators brush it off as “that happens at this age.” This is not true. Many injuries at nursing homes are the result of medical malpractice.
The Most Common Nursing Home Injuries in Houston Involve:
- Patient on patient violence
- Bedsores, also known as pressure ulcers
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Injuries from falls
Our lawyers will help you find the answers as to what happened and why, and help you hold those responsible for the harm done to your loved one accountable for their actions.
