If you intend to sue for nursing home neglect or elderly abuse, be prepared to face the opposing parties' claims. The best way to protect yourself in a court case is to have everything documented. Make sure you've included doctors and the insurance company on all correspondence, keep a list of everything that seems wrong or out of context in the nursing home. In some court cases, the person who was actually abused or neglected will have to testify, so make sure that your elder abuse lawyer takes care to let you know what will happen in court.
