Medical Malpractice & Nursing Home Abuse/Neglect

In most jobs, an error will not kill anyone. That does not necessarily apply to jobs in health care.

People entrust their lives and the lives of loved ones to doctors and other health care professionals. However, they are not infallible. They make mistakes. And when they do, patients can suffer injuries or death.

If you suspect that you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice or nursing home abuse or neglect, the skilled  Nashville Medical Malpractice Defense Lawyers at Parker & Crofford can help. They rely on their extensive knowledge and experience to help determine if you have a case—and develop a legal strategy to attain the best possible outcome for you.

Medical malpractice

Even with years of training, mistakes can and do happen. Any medical professional or entity can make an error in judgment or cause an accident due to negligence or misconduct.

When a medical error occurs, the results can be catastrophic for the victim. The experienced personal injury lawyers at Nashville’s Parker & Crofford fight for victims of all types of medical malpractice.

Health care professionals who provide care that is below generally accepted standards should be held responsible. However, proving negligence is not always easy. Doctors and hospitals have insurance companies whose lawyers work hard to resolve your case as quickly and as favorably for their client as possible.

The experienced medical malpractice attorneys at Parker & Crofford work harder to protect your rights and attain a fair verdict or settlement for you. In a recent lawsuit brought by Parker & Crofford against a home health agency, a jury awarded $2.4 million to a plaintiff who suffered an arm infection as a result of negligent nursing treatment during IV therapy.

Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in Nashville

The decision to move a loved one into a nursing home is rarely easy. Even with hours of research, references, and visits, you can never be certain about the care and treatment they will receive. Mistakes happen. And, tragically, so does abuse.

Nursing home neglect and abuse is common and includes physical, emotional, and psychological abuse such as—

  • Unexplained injuries or bruises
  • Bedsores and infections
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Over- or under-medicating
  • Unsanitary living conditions
  • Rapid weight loss or gain
  • Falls, dislocations, and fractures
  • Negligent supervision
  • Financial abuse and exploitation

When a loved one suffers abuse or neglect in a nursing home, you need an attorney who understands and empathizes with your situation. The compassionate lawyers at Parker & Crofford fight tirelessly for your loved ones.
