A Duty to Protect
Nursing homes have a duty to protect and care for your family member. After all, that’s what they’re paid for. When they fail in this duty, negligence has occurred and they can be held liable for it. Many nursing homes cover up these incidents to avoid investigation by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) and to protect themselves from the repercussions brought by family members.
Our elder law attorneys investigate the nursing home’s records for past complaints or issues with the DADS. We find the cause of the problem, such as negligence in hiring or lack of staff monitoring residents’ behavior, and show the damage done to your family member.
By holding the nursing home accountable for the harm done to your loved one, you may prevent this from happening to other families in the future.
