Why Hire Our Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers?

At Schiller & Hamilton, when we say that we fight for you, we mean it. Here are reasons that the Beaufort, SC community relies on our team when they need help following nursing home abuse or neglect:

Representation in compensation claims

We represent victims in claiming compensation following nursing home abuse. While compensation can’t undo the suffering that a victim has endured, it can provide justice for victims and accountability for offenders. Our lawyers can investigate, evaluate your case and pursue justice.

Investigation and case-building

It’s common for nursing homes to deny responsibility and do everything they can to avoid paying compensation. Our lawyers know how to investigate to build evidence and get answers. Our team starts with learning your story. Then, we launch an investigation.

Compassionate representation

We know how devastating it is to be a victim of nursing home abuse. As we talk to people at consultations, we see the pain in their faces, and we hear them. It’s important to us that we represent each client with compassion and understanding. We’ll take the time to answer your questions and explain each step in the case.

Do I Have a Case for Nursing Home Abuse Compensation?

Examples of nursing home abuse are:

  • Assault and battery
  • Inadequate fall protection
  • Failing to provide food and adequate nutrition
  • Inadequate medical attention
  • Dehydration, inadequate water
  • The home falling into a state of disrepair
  • Inadequate temperature control, extreme hot or hold
  • Financial exploitation
  • Social isolation
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional abuse, taunting, threatening, belittling

For example, slip and fall risk is something that needs to be addressed in every nursing home. Dangers around the home should be mitigated like slippery floors, carpeting and handrails. In addition, a person’s risk factors should be addressed, like whether they need walking support or shoes with extra grip.

If a lack of reasonable care contributes to nursing home abuse, or if intentional harm occurs, you may have a claim for compensation. As skilled Beaufort injury lawyers, we pursue every option for you to receive a monetary payment for what you have endured. Contact us for a personal evaluation of your situation.
