If your elderly loved one had an injury in their assisted living facility and negligence played a role, we can help. We can hold the facility accountable for their wrongdoing and get your family compensated.
An assisted living accident lawyer from Pintas & Mullins Law Firm can investigate the Omaha facility, gather evidence, and pursue a financial award covering your loved one’s injuries and other damages. You do not have to go through this harrowing experience alone. We can handle the entirety of your case while you focus on your loved one’s health and safety.
How We Can Help
When you decide you want to file a claim against the assisted living facility, know that an assisted living facility and its team of lawyers may fight it fiercely. It can benefit you to have one of our lawyers in your corner to defend you. We will do all the heavy lifting because your family has enough on their plate.
Some of the ways we help include:
Investigating the Assisted Living Facility
One of our lawyers can investigate the facility to observe the caregivers’ behavior and collect necessary evidence. Evidence includes pictures and videos of your loved one’s injuries and footage from surveillance cameras. We will speak with other residents and visitors to see if they have crucial information regarding the facility’s quality of care. We will also talk to caregivers about their concerns.
We can look into possible maintenance and health violations from the past to prove our case.
Pursuing Compensation From the Facility
Once we have built a solid case against the facility and have proven negligence, we will begin settlement negotiations with its representatives and insurance company. We will attempt to resolve the claim out of court, but this is not always possible. The insurance company might not be willing to pay your family the amount of compensation you deserve.
If we cannot reach a fair agreement on the settlement amount, we have no problem filing a lawsuit and taking the case to court. We will tirelessly fight for justice and a fair monetary award for your loved one.
We will leave no stone unturned in your case. We will do all the work while you spend time with your loved one, ensuring their recovery in a safe environment.
Recoverable Damages That May Be Available to You
Your loved one will need medical care after an assisted living accident, and the expenses add up quickly. Your family should not be paying for anything as your elderly family member suffered injuries through no fault of their own. The defendant should pay for treatment and other damages, not you.
Besides medical bills, other damages your family may be able to recover include:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Permanent or temporary disability
- Cost of transfer to another facility
We want to ensure that this legal case does not further damage you and your loved one’s situation. With our dedicated representation, we will fight for fair and just compensation.

Accidents Due to Neglect in Assisted Living Facilities
While residents of assisted living facilities do not require as much supervision as nursing home residents, they still need assistance. When the staff does not look after residents, avoidable accidents can happen.
If you suspect abuse or neglect caused your loved one’s injuries, you should not hesitate to involve law enforcement. Your family member deserves to be well taken care of—you should not have to wonder if their assisted living facility is treating them right. Accidents that can happen due to neglect in these facilities include:
Slip and Fall
You should not have to worry about your loved one slipping and falling as the facility should be free of hazards, and a caretaker should be with them if they are prone to falling. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “falls are a threat to the health of older adults and can reduce their ability to remain independent.”
An employee may either overmedicate a resident, administer the wrong medication, withhold medication, or cause a resident to suffer an overdose. None of these failures should ever occur. There is no excuse for them, and we can hold a facility liable for your family member’s injuries from a medication error.
If your loved one had a choking episode, they might not have received the assistance they needed while eating a meal.
Malnutrition and Dehydration
Malnutrition and dehydration are common problems in nursing homes. If you discover your loved one is not receiving the nutrients and hydration they need in order to thrive, this is a form of neglect.
An Omaha accident lawyer will not allow the assisted living facility to get away with their revolting behavior. When we fight to hold the facility accountable for their negligence, we are fighting for your innocent loved one and all other elderly residents of assisted living facilities who deserve the best care. This is a prevalent problem we want to end.
