Long Beach Wrongful Death Attorneys

Fighting for Innocent Lives Claimed by Elder Abuse & Neglect

Families seek professional care for elderly loved ones when they cannot provide a safe environment with an appropriate level of supervision and treatment. Unfortunately, acts of negligence, misconduct, or abuse can have the opposite effect, leading to the wrongful death of the elderly patient that the facility or caregiver was meant to protect.

If you lost a loved one at a nursing home or assisted living facility, it will be important to determine whether any type of intentional or accidental wrongdoing was involved. Garcia & Artigliere investigates and litigates wrongful death actions for families in Long Beach and across California, utilizing over 100 years of collective legal experience to uncover and punish illegal conduct and acts of negligence.

  • Physical abuse
  • Suicide linked to emotional or physical abuse
  • Deadly infections in nursing homes
