Oklahoma City Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

If you want to find out more about nursing home negligence and abuse, we have included some common questions and answers below. This can help you gain a new perspective on this important subject. We also welcome you to contact our firm to speak directly with Oklahoma City nursing home abuse attorneys Matthew D. Martin III and Danielle P. Fielding about your specific concerns.

What can I do to prevent nursing home abuse in the first place?

As a friend or family member of a person in an Oklahoma nursing home or assisted living facility, you can play your part in preventing abuse by being as involved as possible in their care. Call and visit frequently, and make sure you make unexpected visits so you can see how things run on a day-to-day basis. Stay in close communication with your loved one, and watch carefully for signs of abuse, which may include weight loss, unexplained injuries, depression, withdrawal, and bedsores.

How do I know if I have a case?

An injury or illness alone is not necessarily proof of abuse or mistreatment. You will need to prove that your loved one experienced abuse or a substandard level of care at a nursing home in order to hold that facility or caregiver responsible. That is where Martin + Fielding comes in the picture. Our Oklahoma City nursing home abuse lawyers can investigate the matter to determine precisely what caused your loved one’s injuries, and we can pursue a lawsuit thereafter.

What types of nursing home abuse cases do you handle?

Our team handles all forms of nursing home abuse, neglect, and negligence. This includes, but is not limited to: physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, malnutrition, medication errors, dehydration, bedsores, medical malpractice, wandering or elopement, and falls.

What is my case worth?

The value of your nursing home abuse case will vary depending on the extent of injury and its impact on your loved one’s life. We can carefully review every aspect of your claim to determine what settlement or award you may be able to recover.

What will it cost to work with your firm?

At Martin + Fielding, we work on a contingent fee basis. You pay no up-front costs and do not pay any fees for our legal services unless – and until – we recover a settlement or award on your behalf. You only pay if we win.
