Lafayette Nursing Home Negligence & Abuse Lawyer

When putting our loved ones in a nursing home, we expect they will receive quality care. Unfortunately, many nursing homes are short-staffed and our loved ones do not always receive the attention and care they need and deserve. When your loved one has been injured or harmed as the result of nursing home negligence, you need an experienced medical malpractice attorney on your side.

At Tauzin & Lorio, Attorneys at Law, we have over 18 years of experience representing the families of neglected and abused nursing home residents. Our commitment is to seek compensation for any injuries, illnesses or wrongful death caused by medical error. Contact us today for a free initial consultation. We will evaluate your case promptly.

Do not accept excuses if your loved one was harmed as the result of nursing home negligence. Contact an attorney who knows how to help.

At our Louisiana law office, we conduct all necessary investigations. We interview nurses, supervisors, patients and others to understand why the abuse occurred. We gather medical reports to see if adequate medical care was given. Medical professionals are held to the highest standard of care. Our firm holds doctors and nurses accountable for their failure to provide this care.

We represent families whose loved ones were hurt as the result of:

  • Failure to take a complete medical history
  • Improper administration of medications
  • Malnutrition
  • Inadequate medical care
  • Bed sores (also known as "decubitus ulcers" or "pressure sores")
  • Failing to adequately supervise confused or mentally ill patients
  • Improper hygiene
  • Lack of supervision of staff members

Many signs of nursing home negligence are spotted only by visiting family members. If you notice signs of abuse or neglect, contact a lawyer at Tauzin & Lorio, Attorneys at Law. We will help you file a claim against the nursing home, nurse, attendant, administrator or other negligent parties.
