Elder Abuse & Neglect Litigation

Many facilities work hard to provide quality care, but when something goes wrong it is important to know your options for holding the caregiver accountable and hopefully provide a safer environment for the next vulnerable adult. Elder litigation is distinct from medical malpractice or common personal injury cases. Many federal and state regulations govern the care setting. Legal representation by someone who understands those nuances is critical. Suzy has worked extensively in representing elder clients and their families to bring accountability to elder care. Inadequate staffing, training, and/or resources are common themes in injuries and deaths in elder care facilities. Scheller Legal Solutions LLC can offer a variety of options to resolve care concerns, including representing the injured or deceased party in claims against the long term care facility, whether in mediation, arbitration, or litigation. Along with seeking legal damages, Suzy also focuses on prevention, such as seeking policy and procedure changes, increasing training in areas of concern, and encouraging advocacy on behalf of other residents. Suzanne Scheller, Esq. often works with co-counsel Kenneth L. LaBore, Esq. in many of her elder abuse and neglect litigation claims.
