Washington, DC-based radio station WAMU 88.5 FM recently ran a news story featuring nursing home lawyer Charles Meltmar. The story featured Meltmar’s recent trial victory where he secured a $1.45 million verdict for a Virginia family of a man who suffered terrible burn injuries while staying at a nursing home.
“He was someone who was suffering from mental impairment as well as physical impairment,” Meltmar says. “And the combination of the both of those illnesses meant that he either needed to be watched or evicted and they did neither.”
Meltmar, who is an attorney with The Cochran Firm DC, focuses his practice on representing victims and families affected by nursing home abuse and neglect in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
