Frith Law Firm has successfully represented families faced with all of the above scenarios. Most of these cases and stories are tragic. Often times, the mistakes lead to the death of a loved one.

We get calls from hundreds of Virginians and West Virginians a year that have a question about nursing home care in our area. When you call Frith Law Firm, you will speak to an attorney about your nursing home case, that’s me. I will provide a free and confidential review of your case – with no obligation. That means, you do not have to hire us for us to perform the review. If you are satisfied with our free review and consultation, we can go from there to investigate and file suit.

Not every call we get is a lawsuit. In fact, most are not. But wouldn’t you like to have a little peace knowing whether or not the facility did act as promised?
