Why You Need an Attorney

Nursing home doctors, nursing assistants, and staff members have a responsibility to provide proper care for their residents. When they fail to do so, the situation is similar to when medical professionals fail to uphold the standard duty of care. Victims and their loved ones have the right to seek justice and fair compensation for their damages including pain and suffering, medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and more.

However, recovering this compensation is not usually an easy task. Having an experienced North Carolina nursing home negligence attorney on your side can make all the difference in your case.

The attorneys at our firm can help you by:

  • Immediately notifying authorities that you or your loved one is being mistreated/abused
  • Gathering evidence to determine who is to blame/liable
  • Putting together necessary documents, including medical records, to support your claim
  • Filing a lawsuit on your behalf and representing you during legal proceedings

We offer all our legal services on a contingency fee basis, meaning there are no upfront costs for you when you work with our team. Instead, our attorneys’ fees are paid as a percentage of your total recovery. In other words, in the unlikely event that we do not recover compensation in your case, you do not pay anything.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
