If you suspect that your loved one may be a victim of nursing home abuse, job one is to make sure the abuse is halted immediately. After that, it becomes important to transfer your loved one to another facility should that become necessary, and to seek compensation for the damage that has already been done. Don’t let an abusive nursing home get away with abusing its patients.
Contacting administrative authorities may succeed in getting the abuse halted quickly. It will not, however, result in compensation for the abuse your loved one has already suffered. To make that happen, you are going to need to collect evidence, admissible in court, that can establish every element of your nursing home under the “preponderance of evidence” standard.
Your loved one is entitled to full compensation for the abuse he or she suffered, and your claim might be worth more than you think. Compensation, of course, means cash – not persuasive arguments, not groundbreaking legal precedents. At Malman Law we understand this and we deliver.

We handle just about any type of personal injury claim, including:
The practical value of a nursing home claim (how much you are likely to actually receive) is based on several factors, including:
You can file a nursing home abuse lawsuit on your loved one’s behalf if:
Yes, you can, because a nursing home abuse claim is based on basic human rights, not contractual arrangements. Your loved one doesn’t need a contract to enjoy the right to be free from abuse.
Yes. Employees are considered agents of their employers – meaning that employers are almost always liable for wrongful acts or omissions committed by their on-duty employees. This is an important advantage, since a nursing home employee might lack the financial means to pay damages for a successful nursing home abuse claim. Having knowledgeable and experienced Bridgeport Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys on your side will help answer your questions and guide you through the process.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
