Nursing homes are supposed to be places where people can get specialized and around-the-clock care, attention, and support. The family members of nursing home residents trust management teams, healthcare providers, and staff members to do everything they can to make sure their loved ones are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. But that doesn’t always happen, and a shocking number of nursing home residents are abused or neglected every year in Nevada.
At Richard Harris Personal Injury Law Firm, our dedicated team of Las Vegas nursing home abuse lawyers fights to help residents and their families get compensation after being mistreated by nursing home employees. Not only are you paying for them to look after your loved one, but you’re also trusting they’ll take the proper steps to protect their well-being and even their life. Finding out that your trust was misplaced and violated can be devastating.
