There is perhaps no greater injustice than nursing home neglect. Victims are vulnerable, frightened and often unable to protect themselves. Despite claiming to provide safety and personalized attention, understaffed and poorly operated nursing homes throughout the country cause injury and death to thousands of elderly and infirm residents every year due to neglect, misconduct and abuse.
At Spangenberg Shibley & Liber, we believe that it is the responsibility of legal professionals to seek justice and protect the rights of the most vulnerable in our society. Our attorneys have a proud record, going back to our very beginnings more than 65 years ago, of standing up to nursing home management companies that violate residents' rights and safety for the sake of profits.
Our legal actions on behalf of elderly plaintiffs and their families have even been instrumental in helping to shape the Ohio Revised Code § 3721.13, often referred to as the Ohio Nursing Home Residents' Bill of Rights.
