Nursing Home Abuse Injuries Lawyer

When a disabled or elderly person needs round-the-clock care, they may need to reside in a nursing home. These facilities are designed to offer medical and personal care for those who have significant disabilities or illnesses. It is a tragedy when evidence reveals that patients in the facilities are harmed due to poor care, negligence or abuse. If you have a family member who has been harmed by nursing home abuse or negligence, you need to know your options to receive justice for your loved one.

Who Can File a Nursing Home Negligence Claim?

Depending on the circumstances, the victim or their immediate family can file a nursing home negligence claim. When the injuries result in wrongful death, it would be a spouse, parents or children of the deceased to file the claim. However, there can be limitations on when it must be filed. Anyone who suspects nursing home abuse or negligence caused an injury to a loved one or a wrongful death should seek legal assistance immediately.

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

It is vital to watch for any signs of negligence or abuse when you have a loved one in a nursing home. Unusual bruising, repeated injuries, fractures, bed sores, poor hygiene and constant infections can be signs of neglect or abuse. The first priority is always to ensure that your family member is safe. You may need to report the suspected abuse or remove your loved one from the facility.

In addition to protecting your family member, you also have legal options. Filing a nursing home abuse or neglect lawsuit can help get justice for your family and may result in compensation to help with medical bills and other expenses. Dwayne L.
