Nursing Home Negligence: A Betrayal Of Trust
When we put our loved ones in the care of a nursing home, we expect they will be fully respected, cared for and treated well. Unfortunately, too many nursing home residents do not receive proper attention, are ignored or even abused. Sadly, the incidence rate is hazy because of underreporting issues.
If a loved one has been injured, abused or killed due to nursing home neglect, the feelings can be overwhelming. That said, the civil justice system is the best mechanism for ensuring justice, accountability and proper patient care. Reach out to a skilled attorney so that you can fully understand your rights and to what compensation you may be entitled.
How Residents Are Harmed At Nursing Homes
We are ready to put more than 35 years of experience to work on nearly any nursing home injury or death case:
- Bedsores, also known as decubitus ulcers or pressure sores
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Physical or emotional patient abuse by staff members
- Negligent care and patent neglect
- Medication errors, including wrong dosage and improper administration
- Wandering away
- Malnourishment or dehydration
- Attacks by other residents
Regardless of your case, we encourage you to get in touch as soon as possible. Early and deliberate action is extremely important in building the strongest possible case for compensation for negligence, neglect or abuse. We know that we cannot undo these types of injuries, but it is our goal to take over the legal side of things so that your family can heal as best as possible.
