Nursing Home Abuse / Neglect

According to Adult Protective Services, there are approximately 240,000 cases of elder abuse documented each year in the United States and many of the incidents are occurring in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

In many cases, accidents and injuries in nursing homes are a result of neglect and in some instances can be attributed to intentional harm.

The elderly need to be protected against irresponsible and often criminal nursing home operators and must rely on their families and loved ones to represent them if they have suffered damages due to negligence. Even though the State of California has enacted the Adult Civil Protection Act for the purpose of guarding against elder abuse, it is extremely important that you consult with an attorney if you suspect that there has been a case of elder abuse.

Calton & Burns, Attorneys at Law, have over 25 years experience in personal injury matters. Our experienced team of lawyers will investigate the facts, evaluate your claim, determine which parties and insurance companies are responsible, and handle all of the details of preparing and presenting your case.

Your ability to make a claim for personal injury rests upon three factors:

1. First is liability, that is, who caused the accident and is legally responsible;
2. Second is the establishment of an amount of damages to which you are legally entitled, and;
3. Third, the ability to collect the damages, specifically what sources, such as insurance or individual assets, are available for payment of a settlement or damage award.

As attorneys we help our clients establish the liability, evaluate and prove the damages, and collect the settlement or judgment. We handle all of the details and are prepared to help our clients get through the hardships and stress created by elder abuse.

As lawyers, we act both as advocates and negotiators on behalf of our clients. We handle personal injury claims on a daily basis, ranging from simple whiplash injuries to catastrophic injury and death claims.
