How Can a Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer Help Me?
Get the Decatur law firm with healthcare expertise
You might wonder why you need a nursing home abuse and neglect attorney in Georgia, especially if you have already filed a formal complaint. In Georgia, the Office of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman investigates these allegations. In addition, local police may be involved if you believe a crime has occurred.
It is important to understand that these local and state agencies are focused primarily on finding out what happened and if a violation occurred. They are not focusing on whether your loved one is receiving the medical care they need and the financial support your family deserves during this difficult time in your lives.
That’s our job. Our experienced Georgia nursing home abuse lawyers at Kurle Justus, LLC put your family’s needs first. We know how to handle complex cases because we have years of experience dealing with them throughout Georgia. One of our lawyers even worked in the healthcare field as a respiratory therapist for more than 10 years.
As a result, we know what evidence to look for in these cases. We know what questions to ask. We have the drive and the dedication to do the job right. Your loved one does not have to suffer in silence. We can be your family’s voice for justice.

Don’t wait to take legal action. Your loved one’s health and safety could be at risk. It’s also important to understand that you only have a limited amount of time to take legal action in Georgia in these cases. Under state law, the deadline (known as the statute of limitations) to file a lawsuit or take other legal action involving nursing home abuse or neglect is two years. That might seem like a long time, but the longer you wait, the more difficult it often becomes to find the facts you need to build a strong case.
