Dedham, Massachusetts Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Lawyer

The town of Dedham, Massachusetts has played an important part in American history.

In 1793 was selected as the shire town - or county seat -- for the newly created County of Norfolk. In 1803 the Norfolk and Bristol Turnpike traveled through Dedham, and it provided an essential route between Providence and Boston. New taverns were set up in Dedham, to cater to travelers and to also act as way stations for the stagecoach lines. More railroads were established and by 1854, the Boston and New York Central Railroad traveled through Dedham

Experienced Dedham, Massachusetts Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Attorney

Is someone you love now living in a nursing home in the town of Dedham? It's all too true that these patients aren't just anonymous "patients" - they are someone's father, mother, sister, brother, uncle, aunt or another relative. They might even be your grandparents. What kind of care is your loved one really receiving? Obviously, you want your family member to receive the very best in care, just as you yourself would administer to them. But that isn't always the case.

Because of that, nursing homes need to be held responsible for providing the best of care. What if you discover - or merely suspect - that your relative isn't getting proper, adequate care? You may, unfortunately, discover that your relative has bed sores, or is dehydrated from not receiving enough fluids. You may uncover that your loved ones have broken bones, suspicious bruises, or are uncharacteristically depressed and withdrawn, or suffer from frequent infections. They may even suffer from ridicule or emotional abuse. These are all symptoms of a dangerous underlying situation, and these situations can cause serious injuries, unwarranted, preventable pain and suffering, and even, in some cases, wrongful death.

If you have suspicions - or any evidence - that your loved one is not being cared for properly or adequately, or is subject to negligent treatment at the hands of a nursing home, that's the time you need to immediately speak to an experienced lawyer. Don't wait. Contact us immediately for a free consultation, to prevent further injury to your loved one in a nursing home.

Client Reviews
When I fell in that supermarket and knew I had broken my leg, one of the first things that went through my mind was, "How am I ever going to take on a company this size and receive any decent compensation for what's happened to me?" Because of you, I received a sizable settlement payment for my injury. I hope more people learn about the kind of legal talent you offer.
The act of placing my father in a nursing home was probably the most painful decision I've ever had to face. You took our case on, and you and your associates fought the owners of this business, tooth and nail. You never gave up. As a result, my father's estate was paid considerable money for his pain and suffering.
My whole life changed on a dark day in December 1989, when I was hit and pinned against a wall by a commercial delivery truck. I was almost DOA at the hospital Emergency Room. Because of my injuries, I cannot work full-time ever again. Because of you and your colleagues' work, I received a large settlement.
My mother had suffered a heart attack in the fall, and the hospital doctors completely missed this in her vital signs and EKG. My mother died the next day, and she didn't have to. But because of your diligence and talent, her estate received a very large settlement payment, along with revised ER protocols to prevent such errors in the future. For my mother and future patients, we thank you for what you did for her.
When our son was hit by a car in a crosswalk, our one and only concern was his recovery and well-being. We had no idea what we were facing: A maze of obstacles put up in our path by the insurance company for the driver who hit our son - denying responsibility for the accident. If we hadn't had you by our side, we feel we would have been eaten alive by this insurance company's lawyers. You guided us from day one, and you never rested.
You know what impressed me most about you (aside from your legal talent)? I know that my injuries from my car accident weren't the worst that you had in front of you - my case was far from the biggest case in your office - but you represented me like my case was worth a million dollars. I can't thank you enough.
There are two things that I will never forget about my car accident: The sound of screeching tires just before my car was hit by the other driver, and, much later, the sound of you telling me that the entire ordeal was over with, and that I was going to receive just compensation for my injuries. The rest, I want to forget - but I'll never forget you and what you did for me.
Choosing to hire William D Kickham was one of the best decisions I could have made in recent years. He was very prompt, to the point and delivered on his promises. He is a true professional and I couldn't be happier with his results. I will continue recommended his services to anyone in need of legal guidance.
