    Relocating a loved one to a nursing home can be a difficult decision to make. While choosing a nursing home, questions are usually asked about staffing levels, patient care, and activities to stimulate residents. Just knowing that someone will be there any time help is needed for your loved one is comforting.

Linton, Jr., and Tobias J. Hirshman are committed to helping victims and families of nursing home injury, abuse, and neglect.

    Some nursing home injuries may seem typical, but they indeed can be prevented with quality care. Injuries such as bedsores, falls, prescription drug errors, dehydration and malnutrition are all preventable injuries. If you suspect that your loved one has experienced any of these injuries, it is important you seek a compassionate, experienced attorney as soon as possible to document all necessary evidence for your case. At Linton & Hirshman Attorneys at Law, we will work directly with you to isolate every detail of the case.
