Fighting Nursing Home Neglect And Abuse
When you entrust your loved ones to the care of a nursing home or other long-term care facility, you deserve to receive competent and diligent care. Unfortunately, the elderly and infirm are often neglected in nursing homes. If they receive bad treatment, they often cannot stand up for themselves.
Concerned About The Care Your Loved One Is Receiving? I Can Help.
I am Steve Crell, an experienced personal injury attorney who understands the ethical, legal and medical problems that can occur in nursing homes because I have witnessed it firsthand. I am the past president and a member of the board of directors of Hooverwood Nursing Home, a nonprofit nursing and rehabilitation center specializing in Alzheimer’s care.
I have worked with the Indiana State Department of Health and other oversight agencies to investigate and litigate nursing home patient care and treatment violations. I recently helped the family of a nursing home resident recover a $200,000 settlement for injuries she sustained from nursing home abuse. I also recovered $175,000 for a resident of a certified long-term care facility who was raped in her room at the facility. My personal involvement in nursing home administration has given me vast insight in nursing home injury issues as well as legal obstacles.

Compensation And Justice For Victims Of Nursing Home Negligence
Nursing homes are legally and contractually obligated to meet standards of care for each patient. Rich and poor patients alike have the right to competent care. When nursing home staff members fail to follow doctors’ orders, fail to monitor patients’ health, allow patients to fall or be injured by fellow nursing home residents, fail to prevent patients from leaving facility grounds with authorization or deliberately abuse patients, there are often grounds for an actionable claim.
I work with doctors, nursing consultants, nursing home administrators, and other professionals and experts to determine injuries and to find out what went wrong. I recently handled a case that resulted in the wrongful death of a nursing home patient who was physically attacked by another resident, and will fight for you when your loved one has suffered from negligence, sexual assault and battery in a nursing home.
