How We Help
In a time of need, many individuals turn to the assistance of medical professionals to help with the care of their parent, grandparent or spouse. Whether in a nursing home, assisted living facility, home health or in a hospital setting, they expect the care their loved one receives to be humane. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. In fact, the incidence of elder abuse is growing rapidly, and each day, thousands of our elderly suffer.

Elder abuse, also often called senior abuse, takes a variety of forms. At the forefront of elder abuse advocacy are the attorneys of McIver Brown, one of the nation’s leading elder abuse law firms.

We Recover For Families like Yours, in Cases Like This
At McIver Brown, we understand the devastating effects that elder abuse can have on you and your loved ones. As one of the few law firms challenging corporations responsible for elder abuse, our experienced attorneys remain dedicated to holding health care facilities accountable for the injury and suffering caused by their negligence.
How Elder Abuse Lawsuits Improve Care For Others
Many times, health care facilities are understaffed or hire unqualified attendants. This is not an accident, but a profit-driven business decision by the corporate owners of these facilities. This results in staff negligence of the elder’s basic needs. When a health care facility fails to live up to the standard of care expected of them, whether the failure is one of neglect or abuse, the facility may be liable for the consequences. At this point, the senior abuse attorneys of McIver Brown challenge the facility in court. This type of action creates an incentive for health care facilities to take responsibility for their actions and to better improve their standard of care. We believe that by taking action, we can prevent future occurrences of elder abuse from happening in the future.

"Tragically only 20% of nursing home abuse and neglect is ever reported, and because people are unaware of time limitations on their case, they often wait until its too late to take action."
