Home Health Care

Personal Injury or Wrongful Death Claims

In today’s world of escalating medical costs, many people receive treatment in their homes, cared for by personnel from licensed or certified home health care agencies. If a loved one has been treated for illness or injury at home, and has suffered injury because of negligence or carelessness in the treatment, you want an experienced attorney to provide strong representation.

At Doolan Platt & Setareh, LLP we bring decades of experience to individuals who have been injured because of the negligence of home health care agency workers or who have suffered neglect or abuse by any medical professional treating them in their homes. We intentionally keep our practice small, carefully selecting the cases we handle so that we can provide a high level of personal service and attention to every client.

We understand the importance of getting a timely recovery for injuries and reject the notion that a personal injury lawsuit must take years to complete. We are committed to providing high-quality legal services in an efficient and effective manner, using our skills in negotiation when appropriate or taking your case to trial, if necessary to protect your interests.

Our Home Health Care Injury Practice

We provide comprehensive counsel to people who have been injured by the carelessness or negligence of home health care professionals, handling injuries such as:

  • Pressure ulcers, also known as bed sores, pressure sores or decubitus ulcers
  • Dehydration or malnutrition
  • Fractures or head/brain trauma from falls
  • Medication/prescription errors
  • Sepsis or infection
  • Elopement injuries (when the patient is left unattended and wanders away, resulting in injury)
  • Wrongful death
  • Other injuries resulting from elder neglect or abuse

We also work extensively with individuals and their families in situations where there has been neglect or abuse, particularly in cases involving older patients. Frequently, these people are treated by employees who lack the necessary training or education to address all the contingencies that may arise. The result is often tragic.

At Doolan Platt & Setareh, LLP we are committed to helping you get justice for yourself and your loved ones, helping you hold the correct parties and institutions accountable for their actions. This includes assisting those who have been harmed by improper treatment at a nursing home facility.
