If you have a spouse, parent or loved one who has contracted a serious infection in a nursing home, assisted living center or other long-term care facility as a result of abuse or neglect, the attorneys at Blackman Legal Group can help you recover compensation for the mistreatment. No one should have to suffer needlessly, especially seniors who, in many cases, are wholly dependent on others for the care they need to meet their daily needs. When negligence or carelessness causes your loved one pain and discomfort, you want an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect your interests.

At Blackman Legal Group, we have focused our practice exclusively on personal injury claims since 1976. We have built a comprehensive knowledge of personal injury law and procedure, and can help you identify all your options, as well as your likelihood of success. We are dedicated to meticulously preparing our cases, carefully examining every aspect of your claim. As a result, we often settle claims at or above insurance policy limits, and we have obtained numerous verdicts or settlements that exceed $1 million for clients.

A free consultation is available. To set up an appointment, contact Blackman Legal Group by e-mail or call our office at 415-585-5200 (toll-free at 866-692-8126).


For many people with elderly parents or spouses, placing them in a nursing home offers the best solution to providing them with the round-the-clock care they often need. Unfortunately, nursing homes are often understaffed, hire unqualified employees or fail to train employees properly. The failure to provide your loved one with the regular care they need can lead to serious health consequences, including infections that cause severe pain or discomfort or require surgery to correct. Because of the frail condition of many nursing home residents, an infection can rapidly spread and can even lead to death.

We aggressively protect the rights of people who have contracted infections because of the careless or negligent acts of nursing home employees, including

  • infections caused by bedsores or pressure sores, also known as decubitus ulcers.
  • infections caused by injuries suffered in falls, or lacerations or cuts from bed rails or other items.
  • urinary tract infections.
  • staph, C-Diff or MRSA infections.
  • post surgical infections.

We handle all personal injury claims, including those arising from nursing home infections, on a contingent fee basis. We will only charge attorney fees if we are able to recover damages for your losses.


We offer a free consultation in situations where individuals in nursing homes have contracted infections due to neglect or abuse. For an appointment, contact us by e-mail or call our office toll-free at 866-692-8126. We have offices throughout San Francisco, Los Angeles and other locations across California.
