    What should I do if I suspect nursing home abuse?

    If you suspect your loved one is being abused or neglected in a nursing home in Columbus or elsewhere in Franklin County, it’s important to take steps to protect your family member’s health and their rights. Each circumstance is unique, but there are steps families should consider taking in many cases. These include:

    • Seek immediate medical attention for your loved one.
    • Contact the police if you believe a crime has been committed.
    • Tell the nursing home you believe your loved one is being abused or neglected.
    • Ask the nursing home to respond to such allegations.
    • Call a Columbus lawyer right away to thoroughly investigate such allegations.

    Don’t wait to take action. In such cases, the sooner you act, the sooner your loved one can get the help they need, medically and legally. That’s why it’s important to talk to an attorney right away who is familiar with handling complex cases in Columbus.

    How do I know if I have a medical malpractice case?

    Doctors, surgeons and other medical professionals sometimes make mistakes that result in very serious injuries or even fatalities. When this happens, that’s known as medical malpractice. But how do you know if you have a case? What should you look for?

    Here again, every case often presents its own unique challenges, but there are certain warning signs or indications that you may have a legitimate medical malpractice case. This includes:

    • Your medical condition is worse after receiving medical care.
    • Your original medical condition does not improve.
    • Different, serious medical issues arise afterwards.

    When these situations come up, seek immediate medical attention, perhaps even from a new doctor or at the nearest emergency room if you believe your life is at risk. Then, talk to an attorney who knows how to handle medical malpractice cases in Columbus. The stakes are high. Your health and financial well-being could be at risk.

    Medical Malpractice
    What makes many Columbus car accidents so complicated?

    You might think your legal case will be straightforward. Someone else clearly caused your injury or an injury to a loved one. However, when a crash happens fast and you are left dazed and confused, the insurance company will seize on every opportunity to delay, dispute, or deny your claim. Car accidents in Columbus often turn out to be complicated legal cases for numerous reasons,

    including:
    • The person who caused your car accident denies doing anything wrong.
    • The person at fault claims you or a loved one caused the injury.
    • Witnesses disagree on what happened or who had the right of way.
    • You’re blamed for the accident in the police report.
    • The at-fault person’s insurance company denies your claim.

    The stakes are high. Depending on the severity of the injury and the length of the recovery, your injury claim could be worth tens of thousands or millions of dollars. Car insurance companies know this, and they’re in it to protect their bottom line. That’s why they take a hard line when dealing with such serious cases. That’s where an experienced car accident attorney can make a real difference.

    We take these cases very seriously, too. That’s why you can count on us to build the strongest possible legal case on your behalf. We do the work that needs to be done to find the evidence that matters. We know how to negotiate effectively with insurance companies.

    Many insurance companies agree to cooperate with us once they see we have a strong legal case. If they do not agree to work with us, we will not hesitate to file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf. We are not interested in settling for a quick lowball settlement. We’re prepared to go to court for you and fight for the compensation you rightfully deserve.

    Your rights matter. We can fight for you. Contact our law firm today.

    The clock is ticking. You only have a limited amount of time to take legal action. This deadline is known as the statute of limitations – in Ohio, that’s two years for most personal injury cases, but it may vary depending on the situation. If you wait too long to file a personal injury lawsuit or take other legal action, you could miss out on your opportunity for justice.
