Practice Areas

The Law Firm of D. F. Truhowsky is passionate about protecting those who are vulnerable, especially the elderly, who have been harmed due to the neglect or misconduct of others. In many cases, the wrong-doers are for-profit entities that do not readily take responsibility for their actions and the harm they have done.

We concentrate on four primary practice areas:

Elder Neglect and Abuse
When a nursing home, hospital, medical professional, home health aide, or assisted living facility fails to provide proper care and a person suffers injuries.

Wrongful Death
When a person dies as a result of the negligence or misconduct of an individual, company, or facility.

Medical Malpractice
When a mistake or omission by a medical professional causes harm to a patient.

Personal Injury
When a person is hurt or injured due to the negligence of another, resulting from a fall, motor vehicle accident, construction accident, or defective/hazardous product., etc.

We provide the skilled legal representation needed to defend the rights of those who have been injured, abused, or neglected—helping them and their families receive just compensation for their loss. As a staunch advocate for the elderly, we can also recommend appropriate agencies and resources that can provide additional assistance to clients and their families.

As we are paid on a contingency fee basis, there are no upfront costs for clients, in most cases.

“The entire family suffers when wrongful death, medical malpractice, elder neglect, or personal injury occur, including spouses and children who are denied support and companionship. Victims and their families are entitled to seek compensation for their loss. We can help.”
