Manassas Nursing Home Negigence Attorneys

When abuse or neglect occurs, a violation of certain regulations and statutes is almost always involved. At the law office of Weimer & Boyce, our attorneys work with investigators, medical experts, and inspectors in cases involving nursing home abuse and neglect. Our office subpoenas staffing records, employee files, video footage (if available), copies of internal memos, and information regarding former complaints or citations involving a nursing home. Our lawyers interview attending staff and managers regarding policies and procedures, as well as investigate circumstances surrounding the injuries suffered by our client.
