Hughey Law Firm has successfully represented victims of elder abuse and neglect throughout South Carolina, including at Franke Health Care Center. Your loved one’s case is not the first instance of alleged mistreatment by representatives of Franke Health Care Center. Let us fight for financial recovery, as this may be the only way to ensure that this facility does not allow anyone else to suffer mistreatment again.
How Hughey Law Firm Can Seek Justice, and a Financial Recovery, for Your Loved One
We handle two general types of elder mistreatment cases, both of which are heartbreaking:
- Cases where the victim survives their abuse or neglect
- Cases where abuse or neglect tragically causes the victim’s passing
Our team will assist you in either of these circumstances. Our responsibilities will be similar whether we are pursuing a wrongful death or personal injury case, as our team will:
Identify Those Liable for Your Loved One’s Abuse or Neglect
Potentially liable parties include:
- An individual employee of Franke Health Care Center who perpetrated abuse or neglect upon your loved one
- Administrators at Franke Health Care Center who failed to prevent, detect, stop, or report your loved one’s mistreatment
- Any resident who abused your loved one
- Any other parties who might have stopped, reported, or remedied your loved one’s mistreatment but failed to do so
Someone is negligent when they fail to act reasonably, and such unreasonable behaviors cause harm to someone. This is the standard of liability that we’ll use in your loved one’s case against Franke Health Care Center.
Gather Evidence and Documentation
Our team will gather evidence that indicates the liable parties’ responsibility for your loved one’s damages. Such evidence may include video footage of mistreatment, incident reports documenting mistreatment (and the facility’s lack of appropriate response), witness testimony, expert testimony, and your loved one’s own accounts of mistreatment.
The Hughey Law Firm team will also document your loved one’s damages and may do so using:
- Doctors’ records
- Medical bills
- Expert testimony about post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other symptoms of abuse and neglect
- Invoices for moving expenses and other costs stemming from your loved one’s mistreatment
- Any other documents that help prove your loved one’s damages
We’ll gather every document, account, or other resources that prove the harm your loved one has suffered.
Fight for the Settlement Your Loved One Deserves
Our team will represent your loved one in settlement negotiations. We hope to resolve their case this way and will argue hard on your loved one’s behalf. However, it is ultimately the liable parties’ decision whether to offer fair compensation.
Take Your Loved One’s Case to Trial
We can take your loved one’s case to trial if necessary. Trial generally becomes an option when liable parties refuse to settle fairly. Our team will keep you informed as your loved one’s case develops.
Hughey Law Firm has earned many substantial recoveries for our clients. Our case results against negligent assisted-living facilities and nursing homes include recoveries of $1.375 million and $1 million. We never settle for anything less than our clients deserve.
