The act of leaving an elderly or disabled loved one in a nursing home can be extremely difficult for people, in both an emotional and a financial sense. We trust the health care professionals at these facilities to care for our loved ones, and we are bitterly disappointed if this trust is broken.

If you, your spouse, your parent or another loved one was injured because of the negligence of physicians, nurses or other caregivers at a Georgia nursing home, we will work to help you achieve justice and recover damages.

Compensation and Justice for Georgia Nursing Home Injuries | Augusta Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Attorney Dekle's relationship with the health care and insurance industries goes back more than 21 years. As an attorney, he defended health care corporations, doctors, nurses and insurance companies against claims by injured people. Over time, he came to understand that his powerful clients used their financial advantages to outclass injury victims in the courtroom.
Seeing this unfair advantage, he opened his practice to advocate for injured people across east-central Georgia, southeastern Georgia and the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA). Because of his experiences, he has become an effective advocate for injured nursing home residents. He is deeply familiar not only with the relevant Georgia laws and court procedures regarding nursing home abuse but also the legal tactics and strategies of his former employers. He can use this knowledge to advocate for any client who has been injured through nursing home negligence.
