Brian Orlow: “The first thing you should do if you feel neglect in the nursing home, is speak to someone at the staff, not at the lower level, a management level and higher as you can. Find out if they’re aware of the different problems of your relative. Also, what you should do is speak to your social worker in the nursing home because maybe if you feel that you’re not getting any positive feedback from the upper staff, then maybe they can help and maybe you can get it switched to a new nursing home.
After that, I would call a lawyer and find out your rights and maybe you would have a lawsuit against the nursing home. With a nursing home it gets a little tricky with the statute of limitations so there are different statutes. That is why as soon as you feel you might have a case, you should call a lawyer. It costs us nothing to call and that’s why I always encourage people because it’s just a phone call. We don’t charge unless we take the case and then it’s on a contingency fee basis which means we don’t charge unless we recover something for you.”
Adam Orlow: “As a matter of fact, over the course of the case it will cost you nothing. Our fee is only a portion of whatever it is that we can recover for you. So if we don’t recover anything, we don’t get a fee.”
