Fairfax Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Skilled Nursing Home Litigation in D.C. & Virginia

The facilities and caregivers responsible for caring for the elderly have a duty to treat patients and residents with dignity and an appropriate level of care. Sadly, this does not always occur. Negligence and abuse can cause serious injuries or even the loss of elderly loved ones – brought on by the very people to which their well-being was entrusted.

At Shevlin Smith, we are committed to holding caregivers, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities in Virginia and D.C. accountable for substandard care, neglect, and abuse. We are skilled litigators with over 130 years of collective experience to apply to nursing home litigation. If you suspect abuse, mistreatment, or neglect, now is the time to talk to a Fairfax nursing home negligence attorney at our firm. We can review the matter with you to determine not only how to stop the abuse from continuing to occur, but to bring the at-fault party to justice.
