How can a nursing home abuse attorney help me?
You might think you don’t even need a lawyer if a nursing home employee or resident injured your loved one while living in a nursing home.

Don’t wait to take legal action. In Ohio, you often only have three years from when the abuse took place to take legal action against a nursing home. This deadline is known as the statute of limitations. Three years might seem like a long time but the longer you wait to take legal action, the harder it can often become to find the facts you need to build a strong legal case. Evidence disappears. Memories fade.
