How Can a Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer in Myrtle Beach Help?
Such an attorney can provide crucial legal assistance and support throughout your case. Suppose you have a valid reason to take legal action. In that case, they will investigate the abuse to establish the facts about it, gather evidence to support the claim and build a strong case against the responsible parties.
Once everything is in place, they will file a claim with the liable party's insurance company and negotiate a reasonable settlement on your behalf. If settlement negotiations fail (and if you hire the right attorney), they might be able to fight for you in court.
Can I Negotiate With the Insurance Company Without a Lawyer?
No law in Myrtle Beach or South Carolina prevents you from negotiating with the insurance company on your own. However, this is not recommended, given that insurance companies only care about their best interests. Before you know it, you may end up settling for less than the full value of your claim. Because a nursing home has your best interests at heart, especially given that they only get paid if you win, you can count on them to advocate for your rights.
The Insurance Company Wants Me To Give a Recorded Statement About My Loved One's Abuse. Should I?
Do not give a recorded statement to the insurance company without first consulting with a nursing home abuse lawyer. Insurance companies or adjusters may use your statement against you to jeopardize your claim or minimize its value. One benefit of hiring an attorney is that they'll handle all the communication with the insurer on your behalf, ensuring you're not being taken advantage of.
What Parties Can Be Held Responsible for Nursing Home Abuse?
The nursing home facility, its staff, administrators, nurses, caregivers, and any third-party contractors involved in the care of the residents are examples of parties or entities that could be held responsible for abuse in such a scenario. After reviewing the facts of your case, your lawyer will let you know who to sue. Sometimes, more than one individual or entity can be liable.
Can I Sue if My Loved One Died in a Nursing Home?
Yes, you may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit if the death occurred due to negligence or recklessness of another party. Our wrongful death lawyers will work closely with our nursing home abuse attorneys to build a strong case for you if your claim is valid.

But now that you do, it's time to have the case reviewed by someone who understands such incidents and what the law says about them. Fill out our free case evaluation form to get started. You may have a valid civil claim or lawsuit against the other party.
