Assisted Living Facility Negligence Experts
Assisted Living Facility Negligence
Assisted living facility negligence and abuse are things no one wants to consider the possibility of when they are searching for a loved one’s next home. Unfortunately, many assisted living facilities in Georgia promise the world when they’re “selling” their facility, and when the resident becomes catastrophically injured by a fall or infected bed-sore, those same people will show up in court claiming, “It’s not our fault. This patient wasn’t appropriate for our facility, we don’t provide that level of care.”

ARE ASSISTED LIVING FACILITY STAFF REALLY JUST GLORIFIED BABYSITTERS?
The problem for these facilities, of course, is that the Georgia Department of Community Health issues mandatory regulations that require more than glorified babysitting. Plus, these facilities promise a level of care they know they can’t, or are unwilling to, provide. Yet these fraudulent and unscrupulous businesses continue to operate, continue to provide substandard care and continue to avoid taking any responsibility — all while gladly collecting exorbitant monthly fees. This conduct is truly reprehensible.
Along with the other practice areas Davis Adams handles, cases involving assisted living facility negligence are highly complex in nature and rife with opportunities for negligent parties to avoid taking responsibility. We diligently discover the important facts, retain world-class expert witnesses, and methodically prepare nursing home/assisted living facility cases for trial in a way that maximizes the opportunity for a verdict that provides justice for our clients.
WHAT IS THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR ASSISTED LIVING NEGLIGENCE?
When there’s an act of violence, such as a physical or sexual assault nursing home abuse cases sometimes fall under criminal law. Wrongful death cases where it could be shown that an act of gross negligence occurred that resulted in the death, criminal prosecutions for nursing home abuse can also occur.
Each state is responsible for enforcing the law. In instances of acute intentional or negligent harm or death, most have no set lawful time period or statutory restriction from the time the crime occurred or was discovered, to the time that the person is charged and prosecuted.
For civil law cases, such as the assisted living facility negligence and abuse cases that don’t meet the requirements to be considered as criminal actions. There is a firm statute of limitations set by the state. In Georgia, that limit is two years.

ASSISTED LIVING FACILITY NEGLIGENCE
Multiple Verdicts and Settlements in the Millions
Unfortunately, financial compensation is the only form of justice available under these circumstances. When determining the fair value of the case, we consider the following damages:
- Past and future lost earnings
- Past medical bills and future/projected medical expenditures like life-care programs
- Physical pain and distress
- Mental and emotional pain or distress
- The full value of a life and the loss of consortium (companionship) in wrongful death cases
Often, our clients are able to avoid the risk and emotional toll associated with taking the case to trial by settling through mediation. When mediation is unsuccessful, however, the right nursing home neglect lawyer takes the case to trial to determine our client’s compensation. If your loved one has suffered nursing malpractice, bed sores, lack of care, or any other issue of negligence in an assisted living facility, we can help.
