Fighting for Justice in Missouri. Every Single Day.
As a law firm that specializes in nursing home neglect and abuse cases in Missouri, Terry Law Firm covers the entire state of Missouri. This means that residents of any city or town in Missouri can contact Terry Law Firm for legal representation and assistance with nursing home neglect and abuse cases.
By providing statewide coverage, Terry Law Firm is able to ensure that all residents of Missouri, regardless of where they live, have access to experienced legal representation and the resources they need to pursue justice and hold long-term care facilities accountable for their actions.
Physical injuries are one of the most visible and often most devastating types of harm that can result from nursing home neglect and abuse. Some common examples of physical injuries associated with nursing home neglect and abuse include pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores, which can develop when a resident is left in the same position for long periods of time without proper care and attention. Other physical injuries may include broken bones, falls resulting from inadequate supervision or safety measures, malnutrition or dehydration, infections, and medication errors.
Psychological harm is another significant consequence of nursing home neglect and abuse. Residents of long-term care facilities who are subjected to neglect or abuse may experience depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental health issues as a result of their experiences. They may also become socially isolated or withdrawn, which can further exacerbate their psychological distress.
Finally, nursing home neglect and abuse can also result in significant financial losses for residents and their families. This may include the cost of medical treatment and rehabilitation for injuries sustained as a result of neglect or abuse, as well as the cost of legal fees associated with pursuing a nursing home neglect or abuse claim. In some cases, nursing home neglect and abuse may also result in the loss of property or financial assets, such as when a resident is subjected to financial exploitation by staff or other residents.
Given the serious nature of these injuries and the potential for long-lasting physical, psychological, and financial harm, it is essential that nursing home neglect and abuse cases be taken seriously and pursued with the utmost care and attention. This may involve conducting a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the alleged neglect or abuse, consulting with medical experts and other professionals to determine the extent of the harm suffered by the resident, and negotiating with nursing home administrators and insurers to obtain fair and just compensation for the resident and their family.
Overall, Terry Law Firm’s focus on nursing home neglect and abuse cases is an important one, as these cases play a crucial role in holding long-term care facilities accountable for the care they provide to their residents. By advocating for the rights of nursing home residents and their families, Terry Law Firm can help ensure that residents receive the care and attention they need and deserve, and that neglect and abuse are not tolerated or overlooked.
