Houston, Texas Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Many people reach a point in their lives when they can no longer live on their own, and they need to constantly be in the care of another. For many of us, the ideal situation would be to allow our loved ones to reside in our own homes with us so we can give them the care they need, however, this isn’t always possible. Often, we end up having no choice but to put our loved ones into the care of nursing homes. Though there are plenty of wonderful nursing homes that provide great places for our loved ones to stay, this isn’t always the case.

If your loved one was abused or neglected in a nursing home, White Personal Injury is here to hold that nursing home accountable.

  • Wandering, also known as elopement
  • Overmedication of residents
  • Indications of physical or sexual abuse

Reporting a Bad Nursing Home in Texas & Filing a Claim

Fortunately, there are several things you can do to ensure your loved one is safe and that a neglectful or abusive nursing home is held accountable for its actions. To start, if you think your loved one has been harmed by a nursing home, you should do what you can to document it. This means taking pictures, videos, or otherwise gathering evidence to prove your case. Additionally, if you suspect your loved one is in immediate danger and isn’t receiving the medical care they need, you should call the police, who can get your loved one to safety. You should also report the incident(s) of abuse or neglect to nursing home management and to the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services at (800) 458-9858. Finally, you should retain the services of a competent nursing home lawyer who can bring a claim against the nursing home and fight for the compensation you and your loved one deserve.
