Indiana Attorney Provides Strong Nursing Home Abuse Defense
Knowledgeable Indianapolis lawyer handles claims of mistreatment
Nursing homes provide comprehensive care and support for thousands of elderly Indiana residents. In many cases, the seniors who live in these facilities have significant medical problems that are unrelated to the care they receive. At my Indianapolis firm, Richard Kaufman, Attorney-at-Law, I represent nursing homes and similar care facilities who have been accused of mistreating the people they serve. Whether the specific allegation involves physical harm, financial misappropriation or other types of purported malfeasance, I can assess the legal issues quickly and guide you toward a successful result. My firm skillfully negotiates fair settlements and is willing to take a case to trial when that is the best option.
Firm helps nursing homes oppose all types of misconduct allegations
My firm works on behalf of nursing homes and their insurance carriers to defend against any claims that are brought, including those alleging:
- Physical abuse — Aliments such as bedsores, contusions and fractures are often blamed on nursing home personnel. My firm gathers the relevant factual and medical evidence to uncover the true cause of the problem. In many cases, the injury in question can be traced to other sources such as a preexisting condition.
- Neglect — I assist nursing homes when residents or family members claim that falls, nutrition problems, or other difficulties are due to the provider’s negligence.
- Financial misconduct — If your nursing home has been accused of overcharging residents or misappropriating funds, I conduct a thorough investigation to challenge these assertions and defeat plaintiffs’ claims.
With more than 30 years of experience litigating complex matters in state and federal court, I can give you a thorough overview of your situation during an initial consultation.
