Largest Personal Injury Litigation Firm in the Kansas City Region
At Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, we know how wrenching it is to learn that an elderly loved one suffered the indignity of neglect and abuse while in the care of a nursing home staff. Often, victims of nursing home abuse do not speak up, fearing retribution by staff and other residents. They are afraid of the problems and anger that their family members may experience.
Our attorneys represent clients and their families in all nursing home negligence claims, including:
- Failure to diagnose or report a medical problem
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Bedsores, pressure ulcers
- Medication errors
- Assault by staff or other residents
- Elopement, wandering off grounds
- Mental and emotional abuse
We typically hear about nursing home negligence or abuse from the adult children or grandchildren of an elderly loved one living in a nursing home. They come to us confused and frustrated when the management or staff will not make simple changes to correct a potential problem. When an injury occurs, the nursing home owners are quick to blame the victim. After all, insurance companies and their corporate clients do not stay in business by reaching fair settlements. Unfortunately, that is why we need the courts.
Well-Resourced Kansas City Area Trial Attorneys
At Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, we know that most people do not want to hire an attorney. Unfortunately, recovering from injuries caused by nursing home neglect almost always requires more compensation than what management and their insurers are willing to pay.
Since 1984, we have always approached personal injury litigation from a single perspective: If it was not for the other party's negligence, nobody would have to go to court. By filing a lawsuit and obtaining significant settlements and jury verdicts, we appeal to the civil laws that uphold safety regulations for nursing homes. Unfortunately, it is often the only way to make a nursing home's dangerous practices stop.
We represent nursing home abuse victims throughout the Kansas City region, including Olathe, Lee's Summit and Overland Park.
