Nursing homes and assisted living facilities play a vital role in our health care infrastructure and must be trusted by patients and their families to provide appropriate medical care and attention to aging loved ones. Instead, an epidemic of nursing home abuse and neglect is plaguing our country.
Circeo Fannin lawyers have decades-long experience fighting for victims and families who have experienced neglect or abuse in nursing homes in courts in Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Ohio, Georgia, Missouri, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and other states all over the country. We have witnessed horrible and shocking scenes of patients with severe injuries caused by physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, and cases of neglect causing life-threatening injuries, including broken bones or fractures, dehydration and malnutrition, bruises, and pressure sores. Financial abuse such as stealing money, check forgery, and identify theft are also becoming commonplace.
This national tragedy is rooted in an aging population, with high demand and expectations for medical care, and a shortage of qualified medical staff and caregivers. Cases of nursing home neglect are grossly under reported because elderly patients don’t want to “rock the boat” for fear of retribution, or they may not be able communicate the problems effectively. Family members can assist by looking for signs of abuse and neglect, such as changes in eating and sleeping patterns, personality changes, unexplained bruising, or broken bones.
Nursing home victims have rights to damages. The lawyers of Circeo Fannin know how to uncover the secrets, analyze the facts, and help patients and their families pursue justice in the court of law. These cases require lawyers who are experienced with both state and federal law and whose knowledge of nursing home operations and management may identify systemic causes of mismanagement or negligence that clearly demonstrate liability.

Medical Malpractice is a leading cause of catastrophic injury, illness, and even premature death. Technology and rapid medical advances, along with the high expectation of success have led to serious life-changing mistakes by doctors and other health care professionals.

As consumers, we interact daily with all types of products that simplify and improve our lives. It is unfortunate when one of those products causes unintended harm to an innocent victim. Product liability cases arise from faulty, defective, or dangerous materials, equipment, or other merchandise that cause serious injury. The laws governing product liability vary significantly from other personal injury cases. These cases require experienced product liability lawyers who can determine fault in a product’s complicated, multi-layered manufacturing, distribution, and sales chain. Liability is typically determined by looking at the characteristics of the product itself and the actions of the manufacturer, seller, and distributor.
Product liability laws are designed to keep the public safe. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a defective or dangerous product, contact the experienced product liability lawyers at Circeo Fannin who know how to help victims get the compensation they deserve.
Losing a loved one under any circumstances is painful. Losing a loved one due to the negligent, purposeful, or reckless act of others is traumatic and may cause lifelong problems for close relatives who depended on the deceased for support. In these cases, relatives may be entitled to some form of compensation from those responsible for the wrongful death.
State laws vary regarding the type of compensation a decedent’s family may receive and the legal process required to pursue a claim. Economic damages are the most common form of compensation to cover direct costs such as funeral expenses, medical and hospital bills, and lost wages. Several components are considered when determining the financial damage. For example, if a family lost its sole provider, a greater amount may be awarded than to a single person with no dependents. Families may also look to the loss of future earnings their loved one would have provided to their family as part of their damages. There are non-economic damages that also may be included for the spouse and other dependents, such as loss of affection or loss of parental guidance.

Business and property owners owe a responsibility to their customers to provide a safe environment. They are required to provide adequate security to protect against criminal acts and to warn of known dangers. Property owners have an obligation to be aware of what criminal activity has been occurring around their property and take steps to keep their customers safe. Unfortunately, when property owners fail to have sufficient security measures such as adequate lighting, properly trained security personnel, and appropriate locks and alarm systems, customers can be hurt by violent criminal acts. A negligent security claim is brought by the victim of a violent, criminal act such as a shooting, rape, or assault that occurs on another person’s property, typically a business such as a hotel, grocery store, or mall.
The experienced trial lawyers at Circeo Fannin, who have tried cases in multiple states all over the country, will investigate the cause of the incident and recommend a strategy.

Car & Truck Accidents
With thousands of cars and trucks on the road each day, life-changing traffic accidents are an everyday occurrence. Texting while driving, carelessness, or split-second bad decision-making can destroy or end a life. Accident victims are often faced with grueling physical rehabilitation, long term emotional scars, and financial hardships, including overwhelming medical expenses and possible job loss related to the accident.
Accident victims can help themselves by following a few important suggestions. Once safely out of harm’s way, accident victims should call 911 and seek medical attention immediately even if their injuries are not obvious. It is important to take pictures of the accident scene from various angles and get a clear understanding of how the accident happened. Police officers will want to document every detail from your recollection. It is important not to discuss the accident with anyone other than the police officer, especially the other drivers at the scene of the accident, or admit to any wrongdoing. This will preserve the record of the accident and assist law enforcement and insurance adjustors.
