At Simmons Law Firm, we know that family members struggle with decisions to place their loved ones in the care of others. When a loved one enters a nursing home or other facility, they trust that facility to meet their needs. This includes the most basic of needs: food and water.

At Simmons Law Firm, serving clients in Columbia and throughout South Carolina, we have more than 30 years of experience handling abuse and neglect cases, including malnutrition. Because we charge contingency fees, you owe us nothing unless we obtain compensation for you.
