“Besides infants and children, I don’t think there’s a more vulnerable population in our society than the frail elderly in nursing homes. Every single person deserves the same level of care, respect, and dignity, whether they’re in a nursing home or a nursery," said NC Attorney Elizabeth Todd Beall.
MORGANTON, N.C. (PRWEB) January 09, 2020
The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin announces the addition of Elizabeth Todd Beall, who touts more than 20 years of experience focusing on NC nursing home and assisted living abuse & negligence cases. She has presented numerous seminars on the subject of nursing home claims and litigation, and is a respected authority in her own right.
“Besides infants and children, I don’t think there’s a more vulnerable population in our society than the frail elderly in nursing homes. Every single person deserves the same level of care, respect, and dignity, whether they’re in a nursing home or a nursery. What drives me are the people who cannot fight back or can’t necessarily help themselves. The fact that the elderly often fall victim to abuse and neglect, while some companies profit handsomely off of them, keeps me going every day. It’s an injustice, and it’s one that I work hard to try to fight and correct,” said Beall.
Beall’s drive to zealously advocate for those who are frequently taken advantage of has translated to her handling hundreds of nursing home abuse cases in the past 20 years. With about 425 nursing homes in North Carolina alone, and many of them run for-profit, the decisions that affect the elderly are often done at a managerial level, according to Beall. Too often, the increase in profits comes at the expense of patient care.
Few attorneys in North Carolina have dedicated their entire practice to nursing home cases, and Beall is one of them. Her addition to the James Scott Farrin team further expands the firm’s footprint across the state, with the addition of nursing home cases as a practice area.
Fellow Farrin litigator, Hoyt Tessener, said, “She is a highly respected authority on nursing home cases. The state of North Carolina makes it difficult to hold negligent Nursing Homes accountable for their actions, so it takes a creative mind, hard work, and determination to handle these cases. Elizabeth has all of these qualities and more. Her abilities, along with our technology, will allow us to help many who cannot help themselves, across North Carolina and beyond.”
