The attorneys at Corr|Downs have extensive experience advocating on behalf of vulnerable adults who have been subjected to abuse, neglect, abandonment or financial exploitation by private caregivers or nursing homes. We have successfully settled and litigated vulnerable adult cases ranging from sexual abuse and harassment to wrongful death. Our attorneys also understand the emotional toll these events have, particularly on the families who trusted these facilities to care for their loved one. Our experience, and diverse professional backgrounds, allows us to support families through both the emotional and legal process of addressing these wrongs.
By bringing claims pursuant to Washington’s Vulnerable Adult Statute (“VAS”), our attorneys seek to hold nursing homes and caregivers accountable for the abuse, neglect, abandonment or financial exploitation of vulnerable adults in their care. A successful VAS claim entitles the vulnerable adult, or their family, to monetary compensation for pain and suffering, financial loss, and attorneys’ fees incurred in the process. If you feel you believe you or a loved one were subjected to abuse, neglect, abandonment or financial exploitation while residing at a nursing home, adult family home, assisted living facility, behavioral health facility or while being cared for by an in-home caregiver, you may have a VAS claim that would entitle you or your family to compensation. We conduct a free initial assessment of your case to determine if we can provide assistance. We take most cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not pay any attorneys’ fees unless you win or recover compensation.
