Explore your legal options
Elder Abuse and Nursing Home Abuse cases in the State of California must be reported within a certain amount of time of the injury or abuse occurring. This period of time depends on many factors, including how the injury was discovered, when it was thought to occur, when it actually occurred, and who is thought to be at fault. Don’t wait to call a qualified and skilled personal injury attorney until it is too late to pursue legal action. Call us right away so we can discuss your potential compensation.
If you or your loved one were abused, neglected, or injured, you may be wondering how to determine if the caretaker will be considered at fault. The most conservative approach to take is to file a claim as soon as possible after the injury (or after the injury is discovered). That’s because the statute of limitations is quite short, and depends on available information, evidence, and reporting. The only way to properly file a claim and to protect your rights after a personal injury is to hire a good attorney. Call us today.
