Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
You will need to apply for guardianship of the person and estate if you want to sue the nursing home here and manage the case on her behalf.This is a contingent fee case, you don't pay the lawyer until there is a recovery against the home here.These can be pretty lucrative cases since there was real trauma and harm.You want to call the lawyer referral below through our state bar of Texas.You are also able to move your mother to another facility if she in on medicaid if they have a bed available if you choose to do so.
I am sorry this happened to her, I hope you will pursue this matter.
Contact us by phone:(###) ###-####(Toll Free), Monday - Friday, CST, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The call-in service is closed on legal holidays.
You also want to report this to the Ombudsman here.They represent all residents, they can also help with relocation here as well.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again I wish her the best and you too.
