How We Can Help You
Due to their advanced age, injuries sustained by elderly individuals generally take much longer to heal than those suffered by young people. In some cases, their injuries may not even heal completely. A minor fracture can rapidly develop into a lifelong disability if it is not detected and treated right away. This is why it is of the utmost importance for nursing home employees and visitors to treat elderly patients with attentive and compassionate care. When nursing home staff are negligent or abusive toward your loved one, Williams Newman Williams is here to fight on your behalf.
