Extensive Experience Representing Nursing Home Abuse Clients

We have a strong background fighting for accident victims. Our attorneys, Gallivan and Thomas Gallivan have represented hundreds of clients over the past four decades, including victims of nursing home abuse. We know firsthand the seriousness of malnutrition and dehydration which can cause life-threatening health problems, such as:

  • Urinary tract infections
  • Reduction of muscle mass
  • Memory loss and confusion
  • Weakness, resulting in limited movements that lead to bed sores

If not treated, malnutrition and dehydration will eventually cause death. Nursing home abuse is a serious problem — we fight hard to prove negligence and hold the negligent accountable. Our attorneys have a strong track record obtaining as much compensation for accident victims to cover pain and suffering, treatment, as well as on-going medical needs. We are ready to provide you with the best representation possible.

Last year I was injured in an accident, and for the first time, needed the advice of an attorney regarding how to proceed. I was referred to Thomas Gallivan through a family member who is a lawyer in Massachusetts. I am beyond pleased with how Thomas handled my case. He was knowledgeable, professional, and although the case was not as straightforward as some, he used every resource to ensure a positive outcome. Thomas communicated with me regularly and I felt completely informed and confident in his ability. He expertly negotiated a fair settlement that I was very happy with. The entire experience was extremely positive, during a stressful time for me. Thank you Thomas. Melanie
