Accountability for Harm
Many facilities work hard to provide quality care, but when something goes wrong, it is essential to know your options for holding the provider accountable and hopefully make a safer environment for the next vulnerable adult.
Elder abuse and neglect litigation is distinct from medical practice as well as common personal injury or wrongful death claims. Many federal and state regulations govern the care setting. Legal representation by someone who understands those nuances is critical. Suzanne Scheller has worked extensively in representing elder clients and their families to bring accountability for harm in the nursing home and assisted living care settings.
Focus on Prevention
Along with seeking legal damages, Suzy Scheller also focuses on prevention, such as seeking policy and procedure changes, increasing training in areas of concern, and encouraging advocacy on behalf of other residents. Suzanne Scheller, Esq. often works with co-counsel Kenneth L. LaBore, Esq. in many of her elder abuse and neglect litigation claims.
