After you remove your family member from a negligent nursing home, you should contact a lawyer specializing in elder abuse or nursing home neglect/abuse cases. Nursing home abuse lawyers are well-versed in all the laws in your state regarding elder cases, and they will be able to tell you whether or not you have legal standing to sue the nursing home because of your family member's poor treatment. These lawyers can be found by word-of-mouth, the Yellow Pages or online via the law firms' Web sites.
