If you've decided to get a lawyer involved in what you believe is nursing home negligence or abuse, it's best to research and interview only attorneys who specialize in this area. Be sure to ask the lawyer how many of these types of cases they've handled, and ask how he/she plans to handle your specific case. Ask the lawyer how familiar they are with the elder abuse laws in your state, and make sure you can give them copies of all medical records and documentation of abuse if they request it.
