Holding Nursing Homes Responsible For Negligence
The lawyers at Sparr, Belville & Brown, LLC in Oshkosh know that nursing home injuries resulting from abuse or neglect are becoming more frequent. Sadly, because nursing homes are usually for-profit operations and are not often fully reimbursed by government programs, many nursing home operators cut corners, fail to have sufficient staff, and hire untrained staff. Abuse and neglect of seniors in nursing homes can result in physical and emotional injuries and premature death. If you see signs that a loved one is being abused or neglected in a nursing home, contact our elder abuse law firm immediately. We have provided clients with personal legal representation throughout the state of Wisconsin for over 30 years. WE CAN HELP.
