Fighting nursing home negligence and abuse
In South Carolina, there are 195 nursing homes with more than 20,000 licensed beds. Too many times, large chains and corporations pursue of profit at the expense of quality care. Families whose loved ones are in these facilities can feel helpless as they watch their loved one suffer and decline towards death.
Abuse and neglect in nursing homes comes in many forms. Most often, it is caused by understaffed facilities or poorly trained caregivers that results in falls and fractures, dehydration, weight loss, and bedsores/pressure ulcers. Learn more about nursing home abuse and neglect here.

One of Greenville’s most experienced nursing home abuse lawyer
Andy Arnold leads Horton Law Firm’s nursing home litigation team. He filed his first nursing home negligence case in 1999.

Why sue a nursing home for neglect?
Whether to file a lawsuit is an intensely personal decision. Many decide to forego the experience and prefer to move on when their loved one has been seriously injured or died in a nursing home. However, others have a strong impulse towards holding wrongdoers responsible, and always hoping that in addition to a remedy in their case that a lawsuit can help bring about change in nursing home care.
Nursing home abuse lawyer Andy Arnold takes his cases personally; he understands that we all face the prospect of being dependent on strangers to care for us. So each case against a careless nursing home is an opportunity for us to affect change. Each case is a chance to “do unto others.” Change comes by taking a little bit off the bottom line for nursing homes who only care about profits. No single case will change the world, but one by one, each case presents a chance to improve the life of others. Families who fight back can affect the quality of care in nursing care in Greenville and Upstate South Carolina. This cause is Andy’s cause.
