Nursing Home Abuse Attorney in Discovery Bay
When you place a loved one in a nursing home, it can be one of the toughest decisions you may ever make in your life. You are going from being a caregiver to putting your trust in others to take over and provide a safe and loving environment for your family member.
Many times, nursing home care is above reproach, but in some cases, a family member may become the victim of abuse or neglect, turning a difficult time into an agonizing problem.
Abuse and neglect can take many forms ranging from bruises, cuts, bed sores and unexplained injuries to ignoring or isolating a patient, improperly administering medicines, allowing them to live in unsanitary conditions, or committing financial abuse such as stealing from a patient’s account, identity theft or forging signatures so that an employee can realize an illegal benefit.
The Cartwright Law Firm’s attorneys in Discovery Bay have helped numerous families recover from instances of nursing home abuse. We have worked closely with law enforcement officials where criminal abuse is suspected, and with families to help them seek compensation for abuses their family member may have suffered.
Our goal is to make sure victims of nursing home abuse are physically, financially and emotionally protected. We pursue legal action against perpetrators of abuse to ensure our clients are fairly compensated for the pain and suffering they endured.

We take pride in our success, but we are just as proud of how we treat our clients, protecting their rights and helping them to regain a sense of normalcy in their lives while we work through difficult legal situations.
