How much does it cost to hire an experienced nursing home neglect attorney like you? December 16, 2019 Ann Jacobs Our office handles nursing home cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you only pay us if we are able to recover money on behalf of your loved one and for their injuries, pain and suffering. If we agree to take the case we will front the necessary costs and expenses. These cases can be very expensive to bring because it requires the use of multiple experts to prove both the neglect of the home and the medical effects of the neglect on the individual. At the end of the case, as with most or all contingency fee lawyers, we would be reimbursed for those costs from the money recovered, in addition to our legal fees. Time is of the essence for these cases. The reason you want to pursue this actively and promptly is that evidence tends to fade. Witnesses to whatever happened at that facility will forget or move on. The sooner we can start gathering evidence and testimony from nurses, aids and others at the nursing home where the neglect occurred, the more evidence we will have to show a jury later. There is also a statute of limitations that requires that we file the case within a certain period of time, it is very important to talk to us sooner rather than later. There is no cost for consultations with the attorneys at Jacobs Injury Law – we are here to help you.
