Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
in Austin, TX
When no one responds after she hits the call button repeatedly, the frail woman shakily clambers out of bed and heads to the bathroom on her own. She has only made it halfway when she falls, fracturing her hip. The painful injury never heals and she dies within months.
We assume that a nursing home is better equipped to provide round-the-clock care and supervision. So it is natural to be outraged when an elderly parent suffers injury or dies prematurely because of neglect or substandard medical care.
If you are suspicious about a death, an accident or the rapid decline in your loved one’s health, Leonard B. Gabbay, P.C. in Austin, Texas, can demand answers and justice.
Nursing Homes Should Protect, Not Harm
Going into a nursing home is scary for elderly people who are incapacitated by physical conditions or mental infirmity. The economic downturn has caused elder care facilities to cut corners more than ever on staffing levels and quality of care. This in turn puts patients at greater risk:
- Bedsores in bedridden patients who are not turned regularly
- Dehydration and malnourishment from lax monitoring
- Undiagnosed medical conditions
- Falling injuries for lack of staff to assist them
- Medication errors
- Mental, physical or sexual abuse
We obtain the patient records and investigate the facility’s safety record and the backgrounds of staff members. Personal injury lawyer Leonard Gabbay and his team are committed to fighting nursing home abuse and neglect.
We love what we do, and we’re good at it.
