My mother was a high risk for a fall in a nursing home. The nursing assistant in charge of her care left her unattended in the bathroom for a moment and she fell off the toilet or tried to stand up and fell. We are not sure which happened as she...
You need to talk with a nursing home abuse and neglect attorney in your local area. You may very well have a legal case. I've had cases with similar facts in the last. I wish you well.See question

I am sorry to hear of your bad experience but I can tell you from roughly 15 years of handling cases against the nursing home industry, your experience is not unique. Whether your case warrants a lawsuit really depends upon what happened to your loved one while in the nursing home. You should call an experienced nursing home abuse and neglect attorney in Maryland to discuss in greater detail. Again, I'm sorry you had to go through this. I wish you and your family well.See question
Mother was maltreated at nursing home
The best thing you can do is look up local attorneys who handle nursing home abuse and neglect cases in your area. Don't look for a medical malpractice lawyer because the two types of cases are very different. There are several outstanding attorneys in Arkansas who handle these cases so you should have no trouble finding someone to give you an opinion on whether you have a legal case to pursue.

We're going thru an injury claim for my mom
The answer sort of depends on what the going rate is in the community and if there are any laws that affect the percentage attorneys can charge. On medical type cases, such as a nursing home case, I've seen attorneys fees range from 40% to 50% of the gross recovery, plus the attorney is also able to recover all expenses put into the case. Your best option is to talk with attorneys in your area to get a better handle on what is common in your area.See question

You should talk with a Texas medical malpractice attorney. There are some questions about statute of limitations and who to sue that should be discussed directly with someone with direct knowledge about these issues. I don't know where Cedar Hill is at, but there are plenty of good, qualified medical malpractice lawyers in Texas right here on Avvo that you can look up. Good luck to you.See question
Is it best to get the medical records from the medical facilities myself, before retaining an attorney, or let the attorney get the records?
There is no right or wrong way to do this. In most cases I, as the attorney, collect the records, but in other cases I will have the client do it. It basically boils down to which strategy makes sense for your particular set of facts. Retain an attorney who are you comfortable with and discuss which strategy works best for your case.

My mom is in a nursing home and I feel as though because of neglect she is in the hospital now. She has a uti accompanied by a 107 temp. Utis don't just happen. They are caused by not being clean. She even has to get surgery because of this.
A temperature of 107 is not easy to miss. I've only seen that one other time in a St. Louis case I handled. I would certainly question why the nursing home didn't get your mother to a hospital sooner. You should definitely talk with a Missouri-licensed attorney who handles nursing home neglect cases. I wish you well and hope your mother recovers quickly.See question

That is a Tennessee specific question. As such you really need to speak with a Tennessee licensed attorney who can answer these questions for you. My recollection is that TN has a very short statute of limitations (maybe even as short as 1 year) but again, call a TN lawyer about this. Given the possibility of a short statute of limitations, you should contact a TN lawyer right away. I wish you well.See question

Sounds to me like you need to talk with an elder law attorney who has handled cases like this before. If you have talked with attorneys who can't help, you probably just need to keep making calls. This kind of situation is not so rare that there aren't lawyers available to help. Sorry to not have anything more specific for you other than to keep talking with attorneys. I wish you well.See question
