Elder Abuse & Neglect

Elder abuse and neglect can take on many forms. It can range from a resident right violation such as the failure to knock on a resident’s door before opening it or the failure to respond to a call button in a timely manner to the failure to supervise a resident, which results in falls, the failure to provide proper nutrition and hydration, the failure to manage medications and the failure to obtain emergency medical attention for a resident in need.

Regardless of the type of abuse or neglect, residents have the right under state and federal law to file civil claims to recover for the harms they have experienced.

Our Recent Cases

$13.5 Million Dollar Verdict

10 elderly residents sued a nursing home for the neglect and abuse suffered at the hands of the operators. They alleged the failure to provide proper care for fall prevention, wounds, nutrition and hydration and medication management.

$6 Million Dollar Fee Award

For the cases which go to trial, we will always seek attorney’s fees directly from the defendant so that you do not have to pay us any fees from your award. In other words, we ask the Court to order the defendants to pay us our hourly fees. Fee awards are not granted for cases that result in a private settlement.



Susan did an amazing job representing our family in a complex and emotionally challenging legal matter. Susan was in it for the long haul, becoming both a trusted advisor and a voice of compassion throughout the process. Susan and her team always brought professionalism, empathy, dedication and skill to our case. She achieved a very positive outcome for us, and we couldn't have been happier with her representation. I would absolutely recommend her and SKG Law.

Tom Smith, Lafayette
