Nursing Home Facing Accusations of Elderly Abuse

In a recent case, a nursing home abuse lawsuit was filed against forty-seven year old nursing aide, Anthony Johnson who has been accused of groping a fifty-three year old patient in the nursing home in January. Johnson is also being accused of trying to force a forty-three year old patient to perform oral sex on him the spring before. Johnson was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual battery and a misdemeanor sexual battery.

Days following his arrest, forty-one year old Diane Renee Kline, a registered nurse and administer at the nursing home was arrested in connection with Johnson. Kline was charged with failing to report possible elderly abuse and neglect. The family of one of the victims ended up being the ones to report the incidents.

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.
