  3. How Can A Nursing Home Negligence Attorney Help?



You’ve made the difficult decision to put your loved one in a nursing home. The staff there is supposed to take care of your loved one, but you suspect abuse or neglect. You may not even be sure. But you do know if there is abuse or neglect of your loved one, you want it to stop. The nursing home negligence attorneys at Deratany & Kosner are dedicated to finding the truth and protecting the rights of seniors.

If you’ve brought your concerns to managers at the nursing home facility, you may not be happy with their response. Typically, they’ll deny anything is wrong. Or they’ll tell you they will look into it, but nothing changes. You may even be told that your loved one’s declining condition is just part of growing old. Don’t believe them. You know when something is wrong.

Nursing homes either don’t want to admit that there is abuse or neglect going on in their facility. Or they are so poorly managed, they are not even aware of it. Either way, there is no excuse for the mistreatment of residents who are in their care. It is their job to look after the health and welfare of residents. When they fail to meet that responsibility, they need to be held accountable.

That’s what the attorneys at Deratany & Kosner have doing for more than 15 years. We are passionate about protecting the rights of seniors who feel helpless to stand up against abuse or neglect. We proudly serve as their advocates to make the abuse and neglect stop.


When we represent your loved one, we will find out what’s really happening. We have the experience and the resources you need to go up against nursing homes and insurance companies that deny there is a problem.

Our legal team will conduct a thorough investigation. We’ll review medical records, staff member backgrounds and nursing home reports. We’ll interview witnesses, including other staff members, other residents and other family members. We have a network of experts that we consult. If there is evidence of abuse or neglect, we will not rest until we find it.

We’ll build a strong case in support of your loved that can’t be denied by the nursing home or their insurance company. We fight to hold the nursing home accountable for what happened. Our attorneys can also help you and your loved one take legal action to seek compensation for medical expenses, emotional distress and other damages.

Holding nursing homes accountable in this manner also sends them a message. The abuse and neglect of seniors in a nursing home is never acceptable. They need to do more to protect residents and prevent further abuse or neglect.

Our attorneys are always focused on doing what’s best for you and your loved one. Our main goal is to make the abuse or neglect stop and keep your loved one healthy and safe.

Don’t worry about whether or not you can afford to hire us to represent you. You can. We work on a contingency fee basis. You owe us nothing until we come through for you.
