Compensation and Justice in Cases Involving Nursing Home Abuse
Fortunately for victims of nursing home abuse and their families, nursing homes must keep detailed records of the care and services they provide to their residents. The lawyers at Godbey Law will examine these records, interview witnesses and review medical files in the investigation of your case.
We will work to build a strong case designed to uncover what really happened and expose the injustice of your loved one’s treatment at the facility. We will work to maximize the compensation you receive.
There is a two-year statute of limitations in cases involving elder abuse and neglect. Even if your loved one has passed away, it still may be possible to obtain answers, justice and compensation.
