Negligence & Abuse Of Seniors

Representing Mississippi Families in Nursing Home Cases

When we move a family member into a nursing home, we are placing our trust in that facility to provide that person with the same loving attention that we would in our own home. Family members are often shocked to find out that the nursing home may have neglected their loved one - or even worse, abused them.

At the law firm of Bailey & Womble in Batesville, our lawyers represent families in northern Mississippi who fear their loved one was abused or neglected in a nursing home. Our lawyers have a track record of successful settlements and jury verdicts in all types of personal injury cases.

Representing Your Family's Interests

Nursing home negligence lawsuits are usually initiated by the children or family members of the resident after they notice signs of abuse or neglect. These signs may include:

  • Dehydration or malnutrition
  • Bed sores suffered by an immobile patient
  • Unexplained injury or death
  • Injuries caused by a patient wandering away from the facility (called elopement)
  • Lack of mental alertness or other symptoms that could be caused by misuse of prescription drugs

Nursing homes in Mississippi are held to a high standard to provide proper care for their residents. If you suspect that your loved one is being neglected or abused, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. If we believe that you have a meritorious claim, we will hire experts to review nursing home records and interview staff members to find out if there is enough evidence to pursue a legal claim.
