Federal and state laws were put in place to protect the rights of elder care patients to protect these vulnerable individuals from elder abuse or neglect. In a setting where caregiving should be the primary focus, nursing home abuse is becoming more and more prevalent. From emotional abuse to physical assault to negligence, abuse and mistreatment of residents in nursing homes, elder care and assisted living facilities comes in many forms.
If you suspect your loved one is being abused or neglected in a nursing home or while in the care of an elder care professional, you need the help of an experienced nursing home abuse attorney to investigate and file a legal complaint on behalf of your loved one.
Trammell Piazza Law Firm’s skillful, zealous and confident nursing home abuse lawyers have recovered significant awards in nursing home abuse cases. The goal of our nursing home abuse lawyers is not only to recover compensation for nursing home residents who have been abused, but to deter other nursing homes for care centers from engaging in similar conduct with other patients and residents.
Nationally-recognized nursing home abuse representation.
Trammell Piazza Partners Chad Trammell and Melody Piazza are two of the most respected nursing home attorneys in the country with extensive trial experience and a record of numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and recoveries for nursing home neglect and abuse. Chad led a landmark case that achieved recoveries for a group of nursing home victims who would have been left high and dry with the sale of the company. He also headed up a team of attorneys who achieved a $4.7 million verdict for the wrongful death of a patient who suffered sepsis, MRSA and stage IV sores while in the care of a nursing home facility following hospitalization due to a stroke. The verdict proved that the facility’s aids and nurses were unable to do their jobs properly due to lack of training and chronic short-staffing in the facility.
Chad Trammell has deep knowledge and experience practicing on both sides of the aisle in civil defense cases for businesses, insurance companies and a large nursing home corporation and defending the interests of vulnerable victims of nursing home abuse.
