If you suspect that a loved one of yours who resides in a nursing home is a victim of nursing home abuse, neglect, or medical malpractice, you should take action immediately. All three of these acts can be injurious to an elderly person, and sometimes even fatal. To aid you in your quest to put an end to abuse/neglect and recoup damages, you’ll want an experienced attorney on your side. But how can you find a good Boston nursing home lawyer that you can trust with handling your case?
- Use Google
When you have a question that needs an answer Google can be a great place to turn. “What are the signs of Nursing Home Abuse”, or “How can I find the top Nursing Home Lawyer” are the questions our client search in Google and Bing before signing up for a free consultation.
- Ask for Referrals from Family and Friends
Another way to find a lawyer near you whom you can likely trust is to ask other family members or friends, or even coworkers and associations, for a recommendation. If someone you know and trust has had a good experience working with a Boston nursing home lawyer near you, they may be a perfect fit for your case as well.
- Schedule a Free Case Consultation
After you have found a lawyer or two near you using referrals from family or friends or the Massachusetts Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service, you should schedule a free consultation with each lawyer before you hire them. A free consultation is an opportunity for you to learn more about the lawyer and how they’ll handle you’re case, their personal background and case history, and what the outcome of your case may be. If a lawyer attempts to charge you for a free consultation, or tells you that they’ll work on your case, but will charge hourly or upfront fees, this is an indication that they aren’t the right lawyer for you. A good Boston nursing home lawyer will only collect a fee if your case is successful.
