Thomas Law Offices has over a decade of experience helping families seek justice on behalf of loved ones who have been abused, neglected, or otherwise harmed in nursing homes and long-term care facilities around the nation. Tad Thomas himself has spoken multiple times on live TV about the work our firm does and the changes we hope to instill by representing victims and families.

No one deserves to be harmed in an institution that is committed to providing care. Unfortunately, elderly residents in nursing homes and similar care facilities are often the most vulnerable– and oftentimes, nursing homes are allowed to operate without the proper systems, policies, and checks in place that can stop harm and abuse from occurring. This is why the legal team at Thomas Law Offices is so passionate about helping prevent nursing home neglect and abuse however we can. Our loved ones deserve more.

As part of our mission to continue helping families protect their loved ones from harm and abuse, we are proud to present a brand new website that is dedicated to informing viewers about nursing home abuse and neglect. We’ve named the site My Nursing Home Abuse Guide because the content is organized in user-friendly guides aimed to help inform and educate. The site covers everything from informational guides on warning signs and risk factors for abuse to information on neglect, prevention tips, common abuse injuries like bedsores, information on laws facilities must follow, and information on reporting abuse and how to go about taking legal action if doing so is an option. The site also has a blog that will cover recent news and in-depth information.

We encourage you to browse the site and see what you may learn. A list of all of the available guides on it can be found here.

The content on My Nursing Home Abuse Guide is aimed to help families, loved ones of seniors, and seniors learn everything they need to stay informed about their potential legal rights, but it is intended to be informational only. If you feel that a loved one may be getting abused in their long-term care facility, Thomas Law Offices may be able to help.
