Protecting Nursing Home Abuse Victims and Their Rights

Ringler Radio’s Larry Cohen and Heather Anderson discuss Beasley Allen’s work on nursing home abuse and neglect cases with the firm’s principal Chris Boutwell.

Chris currently handles cases filed against nursing homes that have seriously injured or caused the death of a patient by abuse or neglect.

Cases can involve instances of falling, choking, bed or pressure sores and elopement, where a resident wanders away from the facility.

Given the decline of quality of care across the industry, Chris gives tips on what to do if a resident has experienced neglect or abuse.

He also cautions residents about arbitration agreements that require them to give up their right to a trial and the possibility of holding bad nursing homes accountable.

Number one firm

I really appreciate the law firm, they look into every detail, they review everything with you not just once but several times to make sure everything is correct. They are a very good law firm and I would highly recommend them. They'll always call you back when you call with questions. They're number one in my book.
