How a Kansas City Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer Helps Protect Your Family

If you believe a loved one has suffered nursing home abuse, seek the expertise of skilled Kansas City nursing home abuse lawyers like the professionals at Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet. Our team evaluates your case, determines liability, and advises you on the appropriate legal action to take. They will also guide you through the legal process and advocate on your behalf. Here are some of their methods.

Gather Evidence

To build a strong case, it’s essential to collect as much evidence as possible. This may include medical records, photos of your loved one’s injuries, witness statements, and any other documentation related to the nursing home's history of abuse or negligence.  

Negotiate with Insurance Companies

Often, care facilities and their insurance companies prefer to settle nursing home abuse cases out of court to avoid negative publicity and potentially larger punitive damages. Your attorney can negotiate a settlement with the insurer that adequately compensates your family member’s damages.

File a Lawsuit

If negotiations with the nursing home or its insurance company don’t result in a fair settlement, your attorney can file a lawsuit. This initiates the formal legal process, and the skilled legal team at work to prove liability and secure compensation through litigation.

Attend Trial

If a fair settlement cannot be reached, your case could go to trial. At Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet, we have the reputable abilities to represent you in court, presenting evidence and arguing your case before a judge and jury.
