Chandler Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer
Serving Arizonans Statewide
Elderly people are supposed to enjoy their “golden years” after they have spent their lives working and raising a family. Unfortunately, elderly individuals have an increased risk of injury due to fragile bones such as hips, and other health conditions. It takes a much less-serious accident to cause major injuries such as broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or paralysis in an older person.
In Arizona, There are nearly 200 separate nursing homes with, in total, almost 20,000 beds. The National Center for Elder Abuse classifies the major types of abuse as including: physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, neglect, abandonment, and financial or material exploitation. With at least 20,000 elderly Arizona citizens in nursing homes and countless more in Arizona assisted living facilities, abuse of an negligent nature is likely and does occur.
At Allen & Associates, PLC, we help the elderly and their families seek compensation for injuries caused by neglect, abuse, abandonment or exploitation. Attorney Jamal F. Allen will prepare your case, investigate your injuries and fight to get you the compensation you deserve.

Assisted Living, Adult Foster Care, Elderly Abuse Lawyer, Jamal F. Allen
Adult living facilities and nursing homes are responsible for the care and well-being of our seniors. When they are negligent in their care or abusive to their residents, serious injuries can occur. We represent elderly clients who have suffered a range of injuries in care facilities, including:
- Bed sores
- Broken bones
- Physical abuse
- Sexual Abuse
- Financial Exploitation
Not every bed sore or bruise is necessarily a sign of abuse or neglect. If you are suspicious of the care you or your loved one is receiving, attorney Jamal F. Allen can help you understand your options and investigate the adult care facility negligence, nursing home or in-home care nurse. He will give you an honest assessment of your claim to help you build a case against those responsible for the injuries.
Vulnerable Adult Statute
Arizona’s vulnerable adult statute seeks to protect the elderly in their golden years. This law is intended to protect older people from care-facility negligence, abuse, identity theft and fraud.
Under this law, if a crime is committed against an older person or a person with diminished mental capacity, the perpetrator can face criminal and civil sanctions. Furthermore, if you are in a position of trust and confidence, you have an extra duty to protect incapacitated or vulnerable adults.
The vulnerable adult statute is another tool provided by the state and used by our law firm to help bring a sense of justice to your claim. We will use the statute and other Arizona law to fight for everything you and your family are entitled to, including fair and just compensation.
