Lynwood, CA asked in Probate and Nursing Home Abuse for California

Q: Who do I contact if the probate trust attorney and the trustee will not answer or return my calls?

Also my mom was in a nursing home when she contracted covid-19. She died from complications of covid 11/14/20. They were under stay at home orders so no visitors were allowed. An employee brought covid into the nursing home. What are my options in sueing this nursing home.

A: The trustee and his or her attorney most likely are not returning your calls because they do not represent YOU. YOU need to hire a trust administration attorney to represent YOU. It could be that you simply don't know the right questions to ask and what information you are entitled to. A trust administration attorney can help you with this.

For your other question, you should speak with a nursing home litigation attorney. There are attorneys in California that specialize in this.

In the future, you should ask only one question at a time so that you have a better chance of the right kinds of attorneys picking them up.
