Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse

Missouri Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Attorneys

Nursing homes can provide needed care and assistance to their residents, but, unfortunately, they can also provide the opportunity for abuse of vulnerable individuals. When those terrible tragedies arise, the experienced, trusted trial lawyers at the law firm of Steelman, Gaunt & Horsefield fight vigorously for the protection and retribution of our injured and neglected clients.

If you are concerned about the well-being of an elderly friend or family member living in a nursing home, contact us immediately. We will take quick action to ensure that your loved one is safe and receives the care and recovery they need. In addition to representing nursing home abuse victims, we also advocate on behalf of victims of elder care negligence in the home.

Our firm represents vulnerable adults who have been victims of:

  • Neglect
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Inadequate monitoring or security
  • Bedsores or ulcers
  • Untreated conditions
  • Improper restraints
  • Nursing home falls
  • Wrongful death

Nursing home abuse and neglect cases are extremely fact sensitive. These facilities must comply with detailed regulations regarding the documents they have to maintain and the information that must be kept on file. You need an attorney who is familiar with the complexities of the nursing home system and how to obtain the necessary information in these cases. We can help.

If you or a family member has been subjected to abuse or neglect in a nursing home, contact a nursing home negligence lawyer at Steelman, Gaunt & Horsefield right away to discuss your rights. We can help you get the compensation, care, and protection you deserve. We collect no attorneys' fees unless we are successful on your behalf.*
