June 24, 2022 at 16:19
Atlanta, GA based Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. is making their team available to represent the victims of nursing home abuse. Given that elderly populations across the country have suffered greatly in recent years, the firm is adamant that justice be served whenever misfortune befalls an elderly individual at the hands of another individual or organization.
As people age, they become more vulnerable in myriad ways. In addition to becoming more physically frail, however, they can be at greater risk both mentally and emotionally as well, and this has led to several cases of abuse taking place at nursing homes. Unfortunately, despite the monumental amount of research their loved ones can commit before choosing a location that appears to be safe, this vulnerability can still be taken advantage of. In light of this, the firm advises their community to be vigilant, and should they suspect their loved one is suffering abuse at their nursing home or other long term care facility, the best response is to contact Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. for help.
The firm explains that elderly abuse can take many forms, and recognizing situations where such abuse is prevalent is often the first step in putting an end to it. For instance, some may not realize that care providers are required to follow advanced medical directives while the senior individual is under their responsibility. Forgetting or chronically ignoring their medical needs is abuse, and should be treated as such. Senior residents at such facilities may endure other issues as well, including poor hygiene, verbal abuse, dirty clothing, malnutrition and so on. The firm reminds their community that many have even fallen victim to financial abuse, such as where a trusted caregiver may coerce their patient into giving them money. Physical and sexual abuse may occur as well, and family members should take note at once if their loved one starts behaving erratically in any way.
Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. cares about their clients, and this translates to a personalized service that takes their needs into account at every stage. Whatever a client’s needs may be, they will become the firm’s top priority.
Elaine Blair says in her Google review, “Chris Adams was my attorney on my case. I had a car accident which wasn’t my fault. He got me the full liability limit. Lindsay was very helpful also. I had back surgery so I’ll have some pain the rest of my life but the settlement money will help me so much. Thank you to everyone that worked on my case and got me through this. A friend recommended the Ken Nugent law firm, and I’m glad he did.”
Certain clients even report having used the firm’s services more than once, and such testimonials serve to illustrate the consistently great service they receive. The firm believes that clients should have an excellent experience no matter which attorney ultimately begins working on their case, and this means a client can expect to work well with anyone they meet at Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C.
“Second time using this awesome law firm,” says Tim Pate in his review. “Was a first class experience from beginning to settlement.
