When you or a loved one is put in a nursing home, it’s usually to have someone take care of you as needed. Often, elderly individuals require constant attendant care throughout the day and night. Unfortunately, nursing home negligence is well on the rise, resulting in more injuries for vulnerable seniors.
We understand that you or your loved ones have invested a great deal of time and resources to simply be safe. The last thing you should have to worry about is whether the nursing home you or your loved on is in, is exactly that. The irony of the nursing home, the exact place sought for safety, causing an injury or death, is most certainly unfortunate.
While our lawyers are often sought to battle nursing home negligence and obtain compensation, we understand that many times, the actions our client’s want us to take are principle oriented. Simply put, you or a loved one put their trust a nursing home, and due to their negligence, an injury or death has occurred.
Nursing home negligence can come in a variety of ways, including:
– failure to adequately supervise;
– physical and mental abuse;
– failure to provide adequate security;
– failure to provide adequate support; and
– unnecessary use of medication.
