Nursing Home Negligence
& Abuse

Seeking Justice for Victims of Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse

When you place a parent or another loved one in a nursing home, you expect his or her medical needs will be met and he or she will be treated with dignity and respect. Unfortunately, chronic understaffing, poor training and other failures lead to nursing home negligence and abuse far too often.

At Hay & Knight, PLLC, we are proud to devote a substantial part of our practice to protecting the rights of nursing home residents near our office in Somerset and statewide.

As experienced attorneys, we have an extensive understanding of the state and national regulations that govern nursing homes. We also have the skills and resources it takes to hold negligent nursing homes and medical professionals accountable, obtaining compensation for victims.

A Compassionate and Committed Approach to Serious Cases

Father-daughter legal team Richard Hay and Sarah Hay Knight are among Kentucky’s most respected attorneys in the area of medical malpractice. Inside and outside of the courtroom, we work hard to show that we will not tolerate substandard nursing home care or elder abuse in this state.

If you believe your loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible to learn whether we can be of service. Call 606-679-2214 today for a free consultation.

Signs of abuse or neglect may include:

  • Bed sores, decubitus ulcers
  • Falls or unexplained bruising and injuries
  • Infections
  • Dehydration
  • Weight loss
  • Improper trach or feeding tube care
  • Bowel and bladder injuries
  • Improper trach, feeding tube and catheter care

We devote significant resources to our clients’ cases to help ensure we achieve the best possible results for them. We provide compassionate, personal counsel to our clients throughout the process, and we advance all fees so they do not have to be burdened by financial expenses during the legal process. This means you pay us nothing unless we win a settlement or verdict for you.

As a family law practice, we understand the impact nursing home negligence has on the victim and their family.
