"I highly recommend attorney Fred Willumsen. He is professional, thorough, forthright, and kind. He communicated well throughout the process, took the time to answer any question I had, told me just how things were, whether good news or bad. He advised well on decisions I needed to make, and his support team did a great job in helping to navigate and resolved my case with the best results possible. Thanks again, Fred!"– A.M.
I worked with Donal McRoberts and I can say without hesitation that he is one of the most caring and hardworking people I know. He helped me through the absolute worst time in my life. Not only with my case but he made sure I was getting the medical help I needed too. I could never thank him enough for all he did. He protected me the whole time, never letting myself or anyone else put me in a position that could hurt me (mentally). If you are looking for someone to be on your side whether it's be a quick case or a long haul Donal is who you need hands down.– Abby F.
I love this law firm Dominic went above and beyond for my case, everything went very well. I’m so thankful for all of the help they gave me.– Breanna S.

Recognizing Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
A key point to any nursing home abuse case is going to be recognizing that it is happening. We want you to always reach out to our Texas nursing home abuse lawyers even if you are not sure whether or not your loved one is a victim of neglect or abuse. You can collect any evidence even if you’re unsure whether or not it is actually evidence. As soon as you notice the first sign or abuse or neglect, we encourage you to reach out to one of our experienced attorneys. The sooner you can provide us with evidence the better.
Unfortunately, far too many cases go unrecognized because the signs and symptoms of neglect and abuse are not always obvious to us. Sometimes it’s a major incident like someone falling down the stairs at a nursing home facility and other times it’s a long drawn-out occurrence that you don’t realize is going on when you’re not there. Again, even if you only have a small suspicion that something is going wrong, we want you to reach out. You might see it in the way they act around you, the way they look, or the way that their room is being kept.
Poor living conditions is often a very noticeable sign of neglect or abuse. You might notice that their bedsheets aren’t being changed and you noticed that it smells terrible. This could be a sign that your loved one is being left for far too long on their own without having help getting to the bathroom when they need it. It could also be a sign that they do not have staff coming by and bathing them as they should be. If your loved one is not getting the attention they need or the proper nutrition necessary to function, or they are being abused by nursing home staff action needs to be taken right away to ensure their safety and well-being.
Our Texas nursing home abuse lawyers will guide you through your case every step of the way and can help you determine if you are entitled to damages.
Do I Have a Case?
We understand that people tend to be hesitant to file a claim against a nursing home because they’re afraid that they’re wrong about the situation. We would rather you be wrong then to miss out on seeking justice for your loved one. It is not always obvious so here are some examples that might make it a bit clearer for you:
There was a case where someone staying in a nursing home facility with Alzheimer’s was left unattended all day. The staff knew that her memory was rapidly deteriorating and she couldn’t get out of bed alone. During this period of being unsupervised, she forgot that she had a broken leg and fell out of bed. This caused further harm to her and eventually led to her passing.
There have also been many cases where a nursing home neglected their patients who came to their facility following a surgery that required the patient be placed in a clean and sterile living environment. In this case the facility failed to provide a clean environment and the patient was often left to lay in soiled sheets. In these types of situations it’s far too easy for the surgical wounds to become infected which can lead to a much longer recovery and can even be fatal.
Malnutrition and mental abuse are often hard to identify, but as soon as you note that your loved one is rapidly losing weight unexpectedly or that their behavior is changing, you should reach out to our Texas nursing home abuse lawyers to get the help you and your loved one need.

Nursing Home Case Value
When you or your loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse, we seek justice. This justice is going to be in the form of money damages. When someone is the victim of nursing home abuse there is often going to be money loss related to it. When someone is a victim of nursing home abuse and they survive, the family often endures these financial burdens. If the abused or neglected patient needs further medical treatment or they need to move to a new nursing home or care facility, this can also cause you and your family financial burden. You may also experience tremendous financial burden if you lost a loved one in a nursing home abuse or negligence incident.
Rehabilitation fees can be included in your compensation award. Rehab for your loved one can include physical therapy, psychiatric therapy, and numerous other treatments required to get them back to full or better health. It is important that we as Texas nursing home abuse lawyers understand the full extent of what they have gone through and what they will have to go through after being a victim to ensure we get them full compensation for all they have endured.
There is more to your compensation award than just the monetary losses sustained. You should also consider any and all pain and suffering that has occurred because of this incident. All of the pain and suffering that you and your loved one has endured because they were a victim of abuse or neglect is relevant to their compensation award. While we will not be able to easily value this aspect of their suffering, it is nonetheless an extremely important facet to them getting justice. This is considered non-economic loss.
If you reach out right away, we can get started building a strong foundation for your case as soon as possible. We hope that you do not hesitate and we will be there for you every step of the way.
