We Must Prove the Seneca Nursing Home Neglected Your Loved One
Unlike outright abuse, which can leave clear signs of its existence on your loved one, neglect can be more challenging to spot. The National Consumer Voice For Quality Long-Term Care cites the following definitions and examples of nursing home neglect:
- Improper positioning that leads to bedsores and muscle contractions
- Lack of hygienic care that leads to incontinence and skin damage
- Inconsistent support to ensure proper eating and nutrition
- Lack of or limited mobility support or access to needed mobility devices
- Limited interaction with fellow residents or disinterest in normal activities
If you notice ignored calls or unattended residents during your phone calls or visits, this could also be a sign that your loved one is dealing with neglect or an understaffed nursing home.
When we manage your case, our Seneca nursing home neglect lawyer thoroughly investigates the nursing home and its staff. Our team also makes sure we collect the evidence that proves the neglect that took place, its cause, and your case’s value. We never stop fighting for you or negotiating for a settlement on your behalf.
Assessing the Costs of Your Recoverable Damages
Nursing home neglect can lead to many short- and long-term follow-up care and expenses. Your elderly loved one might require counseling and other support to deal with the psychological trauma of neglect. In addition to requesting compensation for the cost of restoring their mental health, we also help you request:
- Required medical treatments
- Mental and emotional distress
- Ongoing pain and suffering
- Treatment-related travel costs
Our team will collect evidence of your loved one’s neglect and evidence of the cost of their neglect-related expenses. We also carefully calculate the value of your case to ensure we drive settlement negotiations in the right direction.

The Importance of Complying with South Carolina’s Statute of Limitations
In South Carolina, every civil case has a statute of limitations. It defines how much time you have to file your lawsuit before it is too late. According to S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530, you generally have up to three years to file your lawsuit. If the statute of limitations expires:
- You cannot file your lawsuit.
- The court will dismiss your lawsuit without hearing it.
- You will have no legal avenue for seeking compensation
On your own, it can be challenging to pinpoint the date of the neglect. Our legal team will help you identify the date and comply with the statute of limitations, which can protect your right to seek compensation in court.
