When Wilkes & McHugh opened its doors in 1985, nursing home abuse and neglect lawsuits scarcely existed. Although many cases of nursing home abuse and neglect were documented, very few firms would challenge nursing home corporations when they provided bad care.
Attorneys with Wilkes & McHugh have been recognized across the nation as “pioneers” in nursing home abuse and neglect litigation. We were one of the first law firms to help families hold nursing homes accountable when they engaged in abuse of their residents.
We’ve come a long way in the fight for residents’ rights, but too many frail elders are still paying the price for nursing home abuse. Nursing homes should be held liable when they pay more attention to their bottom line than to the potential for abuse to be inflicted upon their residents.
Our firm has a proven track record of holding nursing homes and other elder care facilities accountable for abuse. Because nursing home abuse and neglect claims often involve the same companies we’ve faced time and time again, we don’t have to spend the time and resources it takes to learn what many other attorneys are discovering for the first time. Our highly-experienced nursing home abuse team works hard for the best results possible in nursing home abuse cases.
Lawyers with Wilkes & McHugh have helped thousands of families achieve justice when their loved ones suffered abuse in a nursing home. We want to help you, too.
