I recently switched to Montlick and Associates after my previous lawyer, Scott Pryor Law, was unable to win my personal injury case or even secure an offer. My experience with Montlick and Associates, particularly with Nives Juric, has been nothing short of phenomenal.Nives Juric took on my case after it was dropped and, within just two months, secured two full settlement approvals. Her expertise and dedication have instilled confidence that the final settlement will be achieved with the same efficiency and success.If you’re in need of a personal injury lawyer, I highly recommend Montlick and Associates. Their commitment to their clients is exceptional, and Nives Juric’s results speak for themselves. They turned my previously hopeless case into a series of victories. Don’t hesitate to seek their assistance for your personal injury needs.
Montlick & Associates was professional, informative and kindly answered all of my concerns. I highly recommend these personal injury attorneys.
I was in an auto accident in December and I contacted Montlick for representation and from day one they made me feel like my case was as important to them as it was to me. Amy and Cate was very polite, professional, well informed and easy to reach. This made me feel very comfortable with this firm. My case manager Amy was awesome, she was always quick to call me back when I needed to speak to her and she called me at least every two weeks to keep me posted on my case even if there wasn’t any developments. My attorney Cate Powell was also great to work with, she too kept me very well informed on my case every step of the way. Up to the very end when we closed my case, they both explained everything very clearly, and made sure that I was comfortable with everything I was signing and made me feel welcome and appreciated. I would highly recommend Montlick Law to anyone with a personal injury. They will take great care of you.

Atlanta Nursing Home Victims

It Happens More Than You Think.

Common forms of nursing home abuse include:

Physical abuse refers to illness, pain, injury, functional impairment, distress, or death as a result of the intentional use of physical force and includes acts such as hitting, kicking, pushing, slapping, and burning. According to a study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO), two out of three nursing home staff  have reported neglecting/abusing a resident.

Sexual abuse involves forced or unwanted sexual interaction of any kind. This may include unwanted sexual contact or penetration or non-contact acts such as sexual harassment.

Financial abuse is the illegal, unauthorized, or improper use of a resident’s money, benefits, belongings, property, or assets for the benefit of someone other than the resident. A whopping $2.6 billion each year is lost due to financial abuse and makes up 13% of nursing home abuse instances.

Emotional abuse encompasses both verbal and nonverbal behaviors that inflict anguish, mental pain, fear, or distress on a resident. For example humiliation, disrespect, threats, harassment, and geographic or interpersonal isolation. According to a study completed by the National Center on Elder Abuse, psychological and emotional abuse equates to 1/3 of all nursing home abuse cases.

General Neglect is a failure to meet a resident’s basic needs such as water, food, shelter, clothing, hygiene, and essential medical care.

Suspect Abuse? Here’s What to Look For.

Often residents experiencing nursing home abuse cannot communicate with their family and friends about what is taking place. Warning signs include:

  • Sudden changes in resident’s behavior
  • Social isolation
  • Dehydration
  • Bed sores
  • Inadequate clothing
  • Malnutrition and weight loss
  • Persistent odor of urine or feces
  • Failure to provide assistive devices such as eyeglasses, dentures or hearing aids
  • Frequent urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • An attempt by a caregiver to cover injuries with clothing or bed linens
  • Delay between an incident causing injury and notification of a doctor
  • Frequent falls
  • Inadequate restraints for the level of confusion and activity of the resident

Compensation Counts.

When experiencing abuse at the hands of a nursing home, eligible restitution may include:

  • All medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma and mental anguish for both the victim and their loved ones
  • A loss of enjoyment of life
  • A permanent disability directly caused by abuse
  • Punitive damages

Hospital stays are expensive. Often times so is the after care that may be required. Montlick fights for the compensation you deserve.

Abuse Can Be Hard to Spot

Some cases of abuse will be harder to recognize as they don’t leave physical marks. Pay close attention to the behavior and mental state of your loved ones as it will help you determine if something is wrong.

Who’s to Blame?

The nursing home may be found liable if:

  • The staff was not properly trained
  • Proper hiring standards were not in place
  • Standards were ignored leading to a dangerous individual being hired
  • Failure to adequately supervise staff
  • Failure to report abuse

Nursing home abuse and neglect cases require deep legal knowledge and skill. Thankfully, at Montlick, we have both. Contact us today.
