Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer
Proudly Standing For the Rights of the Elderly
The decision to place a loved one into a nursing home is one of the most
difficult decisions you may ever have to make. You look for a home with
friendly and attentive staff, clean facilities, and a comfortable environment.
Unfortunately, your loved one may suffer from neglect in even the nicest
looking nursing home.
At The Soileau Law Firm, P.C., our Pasadena nursing home lawyer is solely
dedicated to the rights of injury victims. We believe that our elders
should never receive a substandard level of care, and should never suffer
due to a caretaker’s negligent behavior. When you retain our firm,
we will tirelessly pursue justice on your behalf.
What is Considered Nursing Home Neglect?
Nursing home neglect encompasses a wide range of negligent behavior, on
the part of doctors, nurses, and other staff alike. Since neglect is essentially
a failure to provide proper treatment, it is usually far easier to spot
the signs of neglect than the neglect itself.
Warning signs of nursing home neglect include:
- Unusual or unexpected weight loss
- Dehydration or malnutrition
- Bed sores or other pressure ulcers
- Dirty sheets, clothing, or facilities
- Clothing which is unsuitable for the weather
- Unusual change in behavior or hygiene
We can help you pursue justice on behalf of your loved one. Call our firm

Nursing Homes Have a Duty of Care
Nursing home staff, which can include doctors, nurses, and other care professionals,
all have an obligation to provide a minimum standard of care for their
residents. When they fail to maintain this standard, they may be considered
to have breached their duty to care for the elderly person.
If you believe your loved one received inadequate, insufficient, or improper
treatment, call our Pasadena nursing home attorneys immediately at (713) 581-9042.
Negligence Cases Pose Unique Legal Challenges
As a general rule, you should always seek qualified legal counsel when
pursuing a personal injury claim. For nursing home negligence cases, this
is especially true. To prove that the duty of care was breached, you frequently
must rely on testimony from medical experts, and evidence must be collected
carefully to prevent the nursing home from covering up their tracks.
At The Soileau Law Firm, P.C., our Pasadena nursing home lawyers take great
pride in the preparation of our client’s cases. When you choose
our firm, we will thoroughly investigate the unique details of your case
in order to secure the best results possible.
