Nursing Home/Elder Abuse

Gallagher & Kennedy attorneys have unmatched experience and expertise in prosecuting claims of elder abuse. Our attorneys have brought claims for elder abuse under the Arizona Adult Protective Services Act against a wide variety of long-term and acute care facilities.  As our society ages, more and more Arizonans are forced to turn to nursing homes and other care facilities to look after their grandparents, parents, and other loved ones.  Unfortunately, many elder care facilities put revenues ahead of their residents, with tragic consequences for the most vulnerable members of our society.  When incapacitated victims of abuse and neglect can’t protect themselves, they and their families turn to Gallagher & Kennedy.

Representative elder abuse cases include:

  • Many significant settlements for victims of nursing home and elder care abuse.
  • $7 million settlement involving multiple deaths at a nursing home.
  • $1.5 million settlement for wrongful death of a 90 year old female.
  • $1.2 million settlement – failure to treat pressure ulcer.
