Nursing Home Negligence


Reports of nursing home abuse, neglect and exploitation are increasing. At Gallagher Davis, LLP we help families whose loved ones have been the victims of abuse or neglect in a nursing home.

Signs of physical abuse or neglect can include:

  • Frequent Injuries
  • Complaints of Pain
  • Passive or Withdrawn Behavior
  • Unexplained Weight Loss
  • Dehydration
  • Lingering Bed Sores
  • Lack of Personal Cleanliness
  • General Decline in Physical Condition

Our experienced attorneys help clients determine whether the nursing home or its staff's negligence, failure to treat or seek treatment, or inappropriate treatment was the cause of their loved one's injuries.

We know how to find the necessary information to get to the bottom of these troubling cases and obtain full compensation for our clients.

Verdicts & Settlements

Largest personal injury verdict in Saint Louis County History

Tim Gallagher and Matt Davis, along with Co-counsel Robert M.N. Palmer of Springfield, MO, represented a 48 year old man and his wife in a trial against a motorist who caused a crash in Wentzville, MO in December, 2004, that left the man a quadriplegic. On May 9, 2008, after a week long trial, a St. Louis County jury returned a verdict for the plaintiffs in the amount of 21 Million Dollars. After the trial the Judge assessed pre judgment interest on the verdict to bring the total judgment to just under 25 Million Dollars. The Missouri Lawyers Weekly reported the verdict as both the largest personal injury verdict in the history of St. Louis County and the largest verdict in a personal injury case in the State of Missouri in 2008.
