Issaquah Law Group - Injury Litigation Attorneys

TRUST: Personal injuries are personal. Which is why the attorneys at ILG treat every client and every case differently. Because they are different, and extremely personal. ILG was founded on the principle that strong client relationships are the key to successful legal representation and strong relationships are built on trust. Trust that you will be heard. Trust that you will be protected. Trust that every effort will be made to see justice done in your case. The singular goal of every ILG attorney is to earn and preserve that trust.

EXPERIENCE: ILG attorneys have a broad base of litigation experience to draw on in all Federal and State courts from on-the-ground investigations to Supreme Court appeals and we bring this experience to bear on behalf of our clients in personal injury and wrongful death claims arising out of motor vehicle accidents, bus versus pedestrian accidents, defective and dangerous products, medical malpractice, slip/trip and fall accidents, and catastrophic losses due to fire.

LOCATION: We are located on the Eastside in Issaquah, convenient to Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Renton, Sammamish and North Bend. However, we provide legal services in King County, Pierce County, Snohomish County and throughout the entire state of Washington.

In addition, through The Amateur Law Professor Blog and LinkedIn postings, we share pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Supreme Court, as well as the pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Courts of Appeal so that our clients can be as update to date on cutting legal issues as we are.

Antipsychotic drugs used in Nursing Homes called "A form of elder abuse" by patient advocates

So I came across this story in my twitter feed search. And I have to say I tend to agree. Its a balancing act between having the anti-psychotic drug available for the patients who need it, and not overprescribing it to simply stop the complaining. Every client I've had in a nursing home abuse case claimed that their otherwise lucid parent or spouse was rendered out of it according to these drugs. Am I saying that they should be banned, or that they should only be independently prescribed (as opposed to in-house docs)? No. I am saying their needs to be greater monitoring though. Whether this is done by resident councils or by DSHS is another story. I just know there needs to be something in place, because this appears to be out of control.
