Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse

Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Attorneys in New Mexico

When an elderly relative or loved one moves into a nursing home, assisted living center or other elder care facility, the family has the right to expect a high level of care and treatment. Unfortunately, residents are often vulnerable and nursing home staff and administration do not always provide an acceptable level of treatment. In some cases, this mistreatment can result in serious and fatal injuries.

If you suspect that your loved one is suffering due to nursing home neglect or abuse, don’t wait to see if the situation will improve on its own. Speak with an experienced advocate as soon as possible to protect your loved one from further abuse and to pursue compensation for injuries caused by mistreatment. The law firm of Doerr & Knudson, P.A., has the experience and resources to help.
