We hope and pray that our loved ones that are unable to take care of themselves will get proper care at these facilities. Unfortunately many of these facilities do not spend the time or the resources to properly take care of them. As a result and over years of practice I have investigated and pursued cases involving skin breakdown, commonly referred to as bed sores, malnutrition, dehydration, falls and fractures, improper or wrong medication and weight loss, often referred to as failure to thrive. Many of these problems are a direct result of the facility having improper or insufficiently trained staff. Some of these facilities take a profit over patient approach, which is born out by the results of Neglect and Improper Care.
At the Law Office of Jeffrey L. Victor, P.C., you and your family will meet directly with Mr. Victor. Mr. Victor will investigate the case and will often retain nursing experts and geriatric doctors to evaluate the case from a nursing / medical standpoint to determine if the facility was negligent and the damages caused by their negligence. Many of Mr. Victor's cases against these facilities are settled prior to filing them in Court, as he prepared to go to a settlement conference with expert reports in hand. If the case does not settle pre-litigation on terms agreeable to his clients, Mr. Victor is prepared to take the case to Court and go to trial on the matter calling in experts to testify as to what happened and why the facility is negligent. Mr. Victor has been a trial attorney for over twenty five years . Mr. Victor is a member of the American Association for Justice- Nursing home litigation group. Mr. Victor is admitted to the practice of law in Arizona, Michigan and Federal Courts.
Mr. Victor will review abuse and neglect cases. Some of the types of cases are as follows:
- Skin breakdown, bedsores and pressure ulcers
- Failure to avoid dehydration, malnutrition, bed sores, falls and medical problems
- Failure to promote a safe and healthy environment
- Failure to provide necessary nursing and medical services
- Failure to provide correct medication and dosage amount

- Hip fractures resulting from fall(s)
- Failing to prevent infections
- Injuries requiring hospitalization
