Beasley Allen Report examines issue of Nursing Home Neglect

This week’s guest, J.P. Sawyer, practiced law at the Beasley Allen Law Firm for about 11 years, before returning to his home town of Enterprise, Ala., to “hang out his shingle” in private practice in early 2011. While at Beasley Allen, he practiced mainly in areas involving product liability and nursing home negligence, which are types of cases he still handles. He speaks with Beasley Allen Report host Gibson Vance in particular about the issue of nursing home negligence. Tragically, family members may discover that the facility and/or caregivers they entrusted to make their loved ones safe and healthy were negligent in their duties. This negligence may result in injury or even the death of a loved one. Sawyer recommends families and caregivers do their homework when choosing a facility, including personally visiting the facility if at all possible, and investigating the ratio of staff to patients to ensure there is adequate care to meet your loved one’s needs. However, even in cases where families feel they have been careful, sadly, incidents of negligence or even more serious instances of abuse or neglect may still occur. An attorney can help families investigate these emotionally devastating situations.

Beasley Allen is one of the most professional organizations I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They are respectful, understanding, efficient, and above all compassionate. They take the best care of their clients in every way possible. They keep us informed and aware of things involved in their clients cases. Their counsel is stellar in the industry.
