However, when that death is the result of abuse or neglect, it is not an ordinary event, but something that requires investigation and aggressive legal action.

With more than 30 years of legal experience, we handle these often-complex legal matters, seeking compensation for the families and justice for the victims.
Causes of Nursing Home Fatalities
We consult with a wide range of experts who help us identify the negligence and determine how it led to the fatality. We work with medical specialists, safety experts and licensing professionals to build strong cases against nursing homes, residential rehab facilities, board and care homes, and other organizations that care for elderly patients. We file wrongful death cases for families whose loved ones died as a result of:
- Bedsores and infections
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Physical or sexual abuse
- Overmedication or under-medication
- Failure to monitor
- Transfer injuries
When events such as these lead to the death of the patient, responsible parties need to be held liable. Our Oakland, San Jose, San Mateo & San Francisco lawyers understand the sensitivity of such matters and know that families need time to grieve. We also know that only aggressive, prompt and knowledgeable legal action will raise awareness of the negligence with which many nursing homes operate and help prevent further wrongful deaths.
