Nursing Home Neglect

Skilled Kansas City Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers

As the population of elderly Americans increases, the demand for quality nursing home care intensifies. This increased demand, especially for nursing homes that accept Medicaid and Medicare, often creates a great disparity in the quality of care that is offered. Many nursing homes are understaffed, the employees are under trained, and many nursing home administrators fail to perform routine background checks. These conditions leave many nursing home residents susceptible to nursing home abuse and neglect.

The nursing home neglect lawyers at Holman Schiavone, LLC, in Kansas City, Missouri, are committed to providing uncompromising legal representation to people that have suffered nursing home injuries.
