The Pintas & Mullins Difference
While our attorneys are skilled advocates with an outstanding track record of success in state and federal court cases throughout the country, we recognize that the most aggressive, expensive, and time-consuming litigation strategy may not always be the best solution for every personal injury client and his or her family. In every situation, therefore, we seek to identify the primary objective of our clients, design a solution to fit that objective, and implement that solution in the most efficient manner possible. Our clients have come to expect the highest quality legal services, attention to detail, and results, all at a fair and reasonable cost. Clients can rely on us to be approachable, responsive, efficient, and effective. We offer free consultations, home and hospital appointments, and contingency fee arrangements, which means that we do not get paid unless you do. Our lawyers like to be part of the solution, not the problem, and take an active, personal role in each case, respond promptly to inquiries, and report regularly on case developments.

Nursing Home
Nursing Home Injuries
As a larger percentage of our population grows older each year, we increasingly depend on elder care. Unfortunately each year, there are over one million reports of elder abuse in nursing homes. According to numerous studies, the most common types of elder abuse fall under the following categories:

-Neglect: occurs when a caregiver is negligent or indifferent to the well-being of the elderly person under their care. If a nursing home does not provide the necessary level of care required for the well-being of their resident, they may be negligent. Often, the neglect is not intentional, but rather a result of under-staffing problems at the nursing home.

-Abuse: of nursing home residents by a staff member or other residents includes physical, mental, and even sexual abuse.
-Physical Abuse includes everything from physical evidence
of assault, such as bruises and broken bones, to
untreated infections and bedsores.

-Mental Abuse may be more difficult to detect by the loved
ones of a resident, but it can be just as damaging as
physical abuse. This type of abuse includes isolation,
threats, or intentional negligence.

-Sexual Abuse at nursing homes involves sexual harassment
or sexual conduct that is forced on a resident without
consent, and can also cause severe physical and emotional
harm.

Common Warning Signs of Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect:

Some common warning signs of abuse or neglect in nursing homes include but are not limited to the following:

-Sudden and severe weight loss, or other signs of malnourishment
-Bedsores: Bedsores are ulcers, caused by pressure placed on parts of the body. They can be caused by a number of factors, including an immobile resident not being turned appropriately. Bed sores vary in severity, and often initially appear as persistent red areas on the skin. If left untreated, these sores can become so deep that they reach the muscle, bone or tendon. The elderly have a higher risk of developing bed sores due to thin skin, malnutrition, and poor circulation. This type of neglect is preventable, but healing becomes more difficult if the sores are left untreated.
-Frequent bruising, cuts or open wounds
-Unexplained fractures or broken bones
-Over-medication, which is characterized by symptoms of lethargy, permanent involuntary muscle movements, seizures, and even sudden death.
