Elderly Abuse Law in Columbia, SC
When you help an elderly family member transition to nursing home or in-home care, you expect your loved one to be treated respectfully and compassionately. Unfortunately, all too often, caregivers do not live up to their duties, and even though nursing homes are required to abide by certain standards, they may still engage in activities that are considered illegal.
Protect Your Loved One
If the level of care provided by a nursing home or caregiver does not adhere to the law, you or your family member may have grounds to take legal action to put an end to any physical, emotional, sexual, or financial elder abuse. If you suspect that your loved one is being neglected or ill-treated at an elderly facility, now is the right time to discuss your case with a lawyer. Jekel-Doolittle, LLC can help you investigate your suspicions and determine whether a nursing home or its staff has acted improperly.
If it turns out that your elderly loved one has been abused or neglected, Jekel-Doolittle, LLC will advise you of your legal options so that you can put an end to the maltreatment. In some cases, this may mean speaking with nursing home management to stop the cycle of abuse. In more serious cases, you may be advised to file a personal injury action to hold the nursing home accountable for its actions or lack thereof. Jekel-Doolittle, LLC knows that you expect your elderly loved one to be treated with kindness, care, and dignity.

Excellent, Knowledgeable Attorney
Mr. Jekel represented my husband and me in an insurance claim pertaining to a fire in a rental property and got a settlement that we were very pleased with. Without the services of Mr. Jekel, the insurance company would never have compensated us for what was really owed for the extensive damages. We have found Mr. Jekel to be easily approached, unlike other attorneys we have dealt with. He personally takes his calls, not being shielded by an assistant and promptly answers e-mails. We have found him to be a personable and extremely competent attorney and will always hire him to represent us in whatever we may face. Mr. Jekel seeks justice for his clients. We have only the highest praise for him.
