Nursing Home Cases
Nursing Home injuries and even death may occur due to poor care, poor training of staff, inattention, or as a result of greedy corporate policies. Wherever you are in the United States, if you or a loved one is injured through the irresponsibility of a nursing home, you may turn here for help.
Nursing homes often charge more than $6000 per month for their services, and yet provide less than 20 minutes of care per day for their residents. One federal investigation concluded, “[I]ndividuals who are admitted receive very inadequate — sometimes shockingly deficient — care that is likely to hasten the deterioriation of their physical, mental, and emotional health. They are also likely to have their rights ignored or violated, and may even be subject to physical abuse.” This type of inattentive care may result in death, falls, fractures, dehydration, pneumonia, infection, or bed sores (decubitus ulcers).
The nursing home industry is often operated by people and corporations who place profits over safety. For this reason, federal and state governments and the courts have placed strict regulations intended to protect the residents.
With proper representation, you may be able to achieve a good settlement and avoid the delays of trial and appeal. You can make the nursing home industry change its behavior. By bringing a lawsuit, you can prevent future misconduct and prevent similar injuries to others. The nursing home industry and its insurance carriers hear and react to complaints brought through the civil justice system.
