New Orleans Elder & Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

More than $3 billion in recoveries for consumers in Louisiana and across the nation

Kindness. Respect. Dignity. Compassion. These words describe how seniors in New Orleans deserve to be treated. The words are even more important when a senior has cognitive impairments such as dementia or physical impairments such as heart disease or mobility problems. Sadly, many caretakers see a senior’s age and frailties as weaknesses to be exploited. Sadly, many seniors suffer elder abuse and nursing home abuse and neglect that causes physical and emotional pain and shortens lives.

Garcia & Artigliere is here to stop this vicious cycle.

Our Louisiana elder and nursing home abuse lawyers are dedicated to keeping seniors safe and focused on enjoying their remaining years. We hold at-home caretakers, nursing homes, and other senior care agencies and businesses accountable when they prioritize profit over safety and harm seniors in any way. Our national attorneys are strong advocates for seniors who often cannot speak for themselves or don’t know their rights.

Our founding partner, Stephen Garcia, expressed how law cases are the strongest way to hold caretakers accountable for failing to show seniors kindness, respect, dignity, or compassion.

Drawing Line in the Sand

We are telling these operators who think that our elderly relatives’ and friends’ value is not determined by how much money the operator can make off of them. We won’t stand for it anymore. It is time to stop this egregious abuse of the law and our elders.

– Attorney Stephen Garcia

Nationally respected attorneys handling stroke negligence claims

Strokes can cause paralysis, communication difficulties, depression, and other types of devastating disabilities. Many strokes are fatal. For seniors who are already receiving medical care, the additional burdens of living with a stroke can be devastating. For the families of seniors who die due to a stroke, the loss of a loved one can be unbearable.

The good news is that tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), a clot-dissolving medicine approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of acute ischemic stroke can save lives – but only if the drug is given in the first few hours after symptoms develop.

If you or a senior you love was denied access to tPA or other life-saving treatments or other critical stroke treatments were delayed, Garcia & Artigliere is ready to fight for you. Our lawyers fight for delayed stroke treatment victims and families across America.
