Toronto Nursing Home Negligence/Elder Abuse Lawyers
We fight for the rights of your loved one
When we make the difficult decision to place loved ones in a nursing home, we trust that their needs will be met and that they will be treated with respect. Sadly, that is not always the case. Some seniors are the victims of negligence or abuse. At Smitiuch Injury Law, our personal injury lawyers fight for their rights.
Elder abuse and nursing home negligence are things that no family wants to think about. Deciding to transition into a long-term care facility is stressful enough without having to worry about your loved one being the victim of negligent or abusive behaviour. Our lawyers recognize that navigating cases of nursing home negligence requires experience and skill and are committed to providing you and your family with help when you need it the most.
Experienced nursing home negligence and elder abuse lawyers
A confident relationship between a family and a loved one's caregiver is imperative. Having the trust that you've placed in the person or establishment in charge broken is devastating. We understand that when it comes to navigating nursing home negligence or elder abuse charges, there is so much more than financial compensation that has to be considered.
Our personal injury lawyers provide professional, caring guidance to individuals who have experienced abuse or negligence including:
- Improper feeding and hydration
- Pressure sores and bed sores
- Sexual and physical abuse
- Failure to provide adequate security
- Inadequate patient checks
- Improper staffing
- Failure to follow physician's orders
- Failure to follow government regulations
We take a comprehensive approach when it comes to handling cases involving elder abuse and nursing home negligence. We regularly consult with third-party experts, such as private investigators and medical professionals, to ensure that every detail of the case is considered. We are committed to advocating for you and your family with the dignity and respect that you deserve.
Our firm has been fighting for clients since our founding in 2001. Clients are at the centre of everything we do here. Our goal is to help your loved one get the best possible outcome. You can expect honest and helpful advice from an experienced lawyer who will fight for the rights of your loved one.
Providing helpful legal guidance to those who need it the most
You may not be sure whether or not your loved one is experiencing negligence or abuse, especially if your loved one is unable to communicate with you due to poor health. You know your loved one, however, and you know when something is wrong, so we encourage you to talk to us about your concerns.
