How To Get Help

The news that a family member or loved one has been victimized as a result of nursing home neglect or abuse can be devastating. You know that you need legal help, but the thought of consulting a lawyer of filing a lawsuit raises many questions. The best way to help your lawyer is to supply as much documentation as possible related to the wrongful events. Here are some suggestions how to prepare for working with us:

  • Maintain a diary or log of everything that happens. To help us understand what happened, write your story, providing us with a narrative containing as many details as possible, including names, dates and times.
    • Be consistent by making notes after every visit or phone call. Identify any changes you or anyone else notices in the patient’s appearance, demeanor and speech. If the patient claims that he or she was subjected to neglect or abuse, try to write the victim’s exact words and record the date.
  • Keep copies of any complaints you made to the nursing home, to government agencies, or to anyone else, along with copies of any replies you may have received.
  • Keep copies of the patient’s contract with the nursing home and any documents the nursing home sent, such as announcements, changes to policies, incident reports, etc.
  • Obtain medical records for all treatment for the injuries resulting from the abuse or neglect.

The relationship between you and your attorney is critical in fighting for your relative or friend’s rights and dignity. Be honest with your attorney about the issues. Talk openly about your concerns about the impact of the claim. If you are not sure what your attorney expects of you, speak up.
