Atlanta Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Georgia’s Nursing Home Residents Bill of Rights entitles residents to a number of guarantees, including—

  • The right to a full explanation of all medical treatments and their potential consequences
  • The right to make decisions about which treatments are best
  • The right to proper care, attention, and service
  • The right to stay at a nursing home that is free from abuse and neglect

Elderly and sick persons stay in nursing homes because they need specialized, round-the-clock care. When a nursing home or staff member fails to provide the necessary care by abusing or neglecting a nursing home patient, the injured person has a right to file a Georgia nursing home abuse lawsuit. We can help.


In Georgia, immediate family members are entitled to financial recovery from those who caused the death for the “full value” of a loved one’s life.

Although there is no true way to completely value the life of a human being, the law does provide for ways to establish the decedent’s future income, and other financial losses, including alimony, child support, and medical insurance benefits.  The law also provides for recovery for loss of a spouse’s companionship or loss of a child.

Compensation may also be requested for the decedent’s pain and suffering prior to death and any medical costs to treat the injury that caused the wrongful death.


There are times when even the strongest families need help.  That is especially true when faced with a severe injury or, even worse, the death of a caring provider.  When you hire the experienced lawyers at Jonathan W. Johnson LLC, you become our family. We work your case as long and as aggressively as necessary to get you and your loved ones a full recovery.
