Nursing Home Litigation

Nursing home and long-term care facilities in South Dakota are charged with providing the highest levels of medical and personal care for their residents. Unfortunately, too many nursing homes try to cut corners with personal care and treatment costs, leaving elderly and infirm residents vulnerable to personal injuries resulting from improper care and medical negligence.

Most residents of long-term care facilities are unable or unwilling to speak up to protect themselves. If you have an elderly or infirm loved one who you suspect may be the victim of negligence or abuse at the hands of staff or another resident in a nursing home anywhere in South Dakota, call Johnson Janklow Abdallah, LLP, for a no-cost case evaluation.

Common acts and indications of nursing home abuse include: 

  • Improper care, poor hygiene and skin care resulting in bedsores
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Negligent acts or omissions resulting in falls or fractures
  • Use of chemical or physical restraints beyond what is medically necessary
  • Undue influence over the resident’s finances
  • Intentional infliction of physical harm or unexplained injuries

If you have a loved one residing in a nursing home or care facility and you suspect abuse, contact Johnson Janklow Abdallah, LLP, immediately. Let our legal team be your advocates for the safety of those who need our protection the most.
