Nursing Home Negligence and Elder Abuse

Southern California Elder Abuse and Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

“We Thought We Could Do It Better”

Nursing homes, like any business, need to balance the needs of clients (residents) with the management and control of expenses. When injuries and wrongful death occur, questions regarding care, staffing and negligence often result. Were workers trained properly? Did they have the time to provide the care residents needed? And were errors made when following doctors’ orders and in prescribing medication?

The nursing home negligence attorneys at Gates, O’Doherty, Gonter & Guy, LLP are highly experienced in handling nursing home negligence and abuse cases. Our professional history is focused on trial work; our four partners founded our firm in 2001 after years at large firms. Our motivation for founding a new firm was a single thought — we could do it better — after observing attorneys’ reluctance to try cases in court. Our partners’ legal experience now includes:

  • Hundreds of cases handled in the courtroom
  • Approximately 400 cases handled to verdict
  • A verdict success rate of approximately 96 percent

We believe that a courtroom trial often offers the best chance for a fully successful resolution. When your case is strong, we will provide a full assessment of your legal options and risk. We have obtained numerous successful results in nursing home negligence cases involving:

  • Bed sores
  • Falls
  • Falls from beds
  • Elopement/leaving a facility without authorization
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to follow doctors’ orders
