Our elderly loved ones deserve to feel safe, secure, and cared for at their nursing home facility. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for a resident to suffer abuse or neglect. Do you have reason to think this has happened to someone you love? If so, don’t hesitate to reach out to a Puyallup nursing home abuse lawyer for legal assistance.
We can investigate what’s happened and let you know if we feel you can take action such as filing a lawsuit against the nursing home. At Ladenburg Law, we do not charge upfront for our services. You’ll only pay a fee if we’re able to win a settlement.
Even though elder abuse is prevalent in Washington State and across the country, there are a few things you can do to help lower your loved one’s chance of becoming a victim. These efforts may also halt further abuse from happening.
The CDC has some additional helpful information on how you can prevent elder abuse, and the steps to take if you feel it’s happening to someone you know.
You might be wondering if your loved one has grounds to sue their nursing home or long-term care facility. After all, your family signed all that paperwork during the registration process. The good news is that under Washington State law, residents cannot sign away their rights when it comes to personal losses of property or injury (see RCW 70.129.105).

Every situation is different. As a result, it’s important that you reach out to a skilled lawyer who can carefully evaluate what happened.
Bringing a case against a nursing home is complicated and time consuming. You can be assured that the nursing home will make sure to secure aggressive legal representation to defend their rights. Make sure you come to the table with legal representation, too.
At Ladenburg Law, we only accept personal injury cases. With decades of combined experience, we deeply understand this area of the law. In the event we’re unable to negotiate a fair settlement, we’ll be prepared to file a lawsuit and argue your case before a jury or judge.
