Nursing Home Abuse Cases
Parke has handled virtually every type of possible nursing home negligence case, including the following:
- Bed Sores Pressure sores
- Sexual molestation/Rape/Physical Assault
- Murder by a drunken employee
- Drop leading to fractured hips/femurs/pelvis
- Attacks by dangerous fellow residents on other residents at the nursing home
- “Mystery Injuries” where bed ridden and/or paralyzed residents suddenly develop fractured bones that are the result of trauma
- Chemical restraint/Over-medication
- Failure to timely diagnose a heart attack/stroke
- Preventable Falls
Parke has personally interviewed over 500 families seeking advice on how to deal with a potential issue of nursing home negligence.
Parke is very familiar with many of the medical terms and issues confronting our nation’s elderly in the nursing home setting.
Parke declines representation in the vast majority of cases that he reviews. Typically, he will spend anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000 to review a nursing home case. These expenses vary depending upon the number of experts and the number of medical records that are reviewed.
Assited Living Facility, Hospital, Round the Clock Care Facility Cases
Parke’s practice is not limited to nursing home negligence. He has also handled lawsuits against Assisted Living Facilities, hospitals and providers of around the clock care for mentally handicapped adults who are abused or neglected. Extensive identification of former employees is frequently employed and handwriting identification experts are routinely consulted for fraudulently charted medical care giver entries.
Catastrophic Personal Injury Cases
Parke has also previously represented a number of families whose loved ones were involved in catastrophic motor vehicle collisions involving flipped SUVs, out of control tractor trailers, motorcycle accident victims, and golf cart tip-over accidents. It is exceedingly important to move quickly whenever a catastrophic injury has occurred in order to secure key evidence at an accident site. Parke’s law firm relies heavily on the use of private investigators and accident reconstruction experts who are available to “parachute in” to an accident site in real time. Parke has also handled traumatic brain injury cases and very carefully selects premises liability cases that involve catastrophic injuries with medical bills extending into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
