Orangeburg Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers
People place the people they love — their mothers and fathers — in nursing homes because they want the best for them. These loved ones require a high level of care, and family members trust that nursing homes can provide this level of care during what should be their "golden years."
For this reason, it is especially devastating when loved ones become the victims of nursing home abuse or neglect. At Proffitt & Cox, we understand the pain that families experience. Our Columbia, South Carolina, law firm is dedicated to standing up for nursing home abuse victims and their families by holding nursing homes accountable through legal action.
Our Columbia nursing home abuse attorneys represent people injured by many types of elder abuse or neglect. We also represent the surviving families of residents who were killed by the negligent actions of a nursing facility. Regardless of the seriousness of your loved one's situation, we can help with issues such as:
- Bed sores (also called pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers)
- Wandering off/elopement
- Medication errors
- Repetitive falls
- Failure to diagnose or treat infection or other medical conditions
- Physical abuse (assault)
- Sexual abuse
- Wrongful death
