Elder Abuse & Neglect Litigation

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.

Inadequate staffing, training, and/or resources are common themes in injuries and deaths in elder care facilities. At Scheller Legal Solutions, Suzanne offers a variety of options to resolve care concerns, including representing the injured or deceased party in claims against the long-term care facility, whether through mediation, arbitration, or litigation.
