NHC Nursing Home Settles Last Two Cases From Fire

Following years of litigation, the last two lawsuits stemming from the NHC nursing home fire have been settled. These two cases were the last of 32 originally filed. Since the beginning of the lawsuit a majority of the Court documents have been sealed.

Now that the suit is over, the court file should be opened to public review. Whenever a tragedy like this occurs it is important for the public to have as much knowledge as possible. The more we know about events, the better chances we have to prevent a similar tragedy.

In each nursing home neglect case my firm pursues, I learn how the incident occurred and how it could have been prevented. Often we find that the home did not have enough staff to care for the patients or that the staff were not trained properly. We always hope, however, that when we expose the cause of the neglect the home will adjust to avoid similar tragedies in the future.

What Our Clients Say
★★★★★
When my mother was neglected in a nursing home I was referred to The Higgins Firm for help. They did a great job representing my family and obtained a significant settlement. Hopefully, this will keep someone else's parent from being mistreated in the future. Angie S.
★★★★★
I have a large collection practice and don't handle personal injury cases. Instead of simply declining a case, I referred it to The Higgins Firm. They handled everything. My client got a large recovery and I got a large co-counsel fee. The client and I were both very happy. Attorney Bo Melton
★★★★★
The best injury lawyers in Nashville. They represented my son in a car accident case and did an awesome job. James D.
