Nursing Home Neglect & Elder Abuse

While many nursing home caregivers perform their duties admirably, an intolerable number of elderly individuals suffer abuse and neglect at the hands of professionals who do not always realize — or care — how their actions impact their patients. Physical, verbal, and emotional abuse or neglect in any form is unacceptable, and the attorneys of Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. pledge to protect the rights of nursing home inhabitants.

Our Northwest Indiana nursing home negligence lawyers have in-depth knowledge of state and federal laws in place to prevent elder abuse and neglect, such as the Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987. We can help you begin the process of investigating abuse and filing a claim against a facility or caregiver. We walk clients through the process of reporting a complaint to the Department of Health’s Division of Long Term Care and all related tasks prior to initiating a lawsuit. We understand the stressful and emotional nature of reporting nursing home negligence and are respectful of your feelings in every meeting, including your complimentary consultation.

To get started, call (219) 212-2462. We are ready to help you and your elderly loved one.
