What is the first step in pursuing a nursing home abuse or neglect claim? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Many times a family member will sense that something is wrong in the care of the nursing home resident, and sometimes family members will hear directly from the resident that treatment is poor. If you decide to take action, it is important that you consult with a qualified attorney to review the matter.

The attorney will then undertake to assemble a review of the situation, which will include a review of the records for the nursing home outlining the care that has been given. 

If the case has merit, medical experts will be hired by the law firm to discuss the particulars of filing suit or presenting a settlement demand.
