Nursing Home Abuse

Delaware Lawyers Fighting for Victims of Nursing Home Negligence

When a loved one has been injured due to nursing home negligence, hire a Delaware attorney who knows how to take effective action. The laws on nursing home negligence can be complex, and experienced legal advice is important before a case is filed. At Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty, we have a solid record of success in these cases. We make sure that nursing homes are held accountable for the harm they cause to residents.

Injuries caused by the negligence of nursing homes include:

  • Broken bones
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Bedsores

Many injuries result from falls that should have been prevented. Others are caused by failure to monitor vulnerable elderly people who cannot care for themselves. Whatever the circumstances, the cause is often the same; they are often due to untrained and unsupervised staff who just do not care.

Attorneys Who Are Tough on Elder Abuse

At Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty, we have no tolerance for nursing home facilities that commit elder abuse and other negligence. When injuries occur, we fight aggressively in court to hold them accountable. Our lawyers have a reputation for tough and effective advocacy and have achieved seven-figure jury awards for personal injury victims.
