Legal Assistance


Alerting
the state about a specific nursing home abuse offense does not always bring you the justice that you and your loved ones deserve. Taking legal action is often the quickest and most direct route to obtaining justice for nursing home abuse.

The State Takes Action

The state agent handling the case is supposed to contact the individual who filed the nursing home abuse complaint to discuss it in more detail. Many states tell you that they will contact you within a few days of receiving your complaint.

The agent is then supposed to make a surprise visit to the facility to investigate the specific complaint. In the case that the alleged offense is found to be true, the state will take whatever steps they feel is appropriate.
