10/12/2017 Families who suspect that their loved one has been injured or died because of nursing home negligence or abuse need an experienced, knowledgeable and skilled attorney by their side. Nursing home residents are extremely vulnerable to negligence and abuse due to age, illness and incapacitation. They are dependent upon the staff to be safe and to be able to perform the activities of daily living such as brushing their teeth, bathing and washing, eating and drinking, receiving medical treatment and having access to outside medical care if necessary. If neglect or emotional, physical, sexual and financial abuse is occurring in a nursing home facility, the burden of proof is on the family to provide sufficient evidence to prove liability on the part of the nursing home.
An experienced attorney can navigate the sometimes complicated federal and state laws regarding nursing home operations, examining the specific details of each case to determine the responsible parties. An attorney will be at your side during the legal proceedings, making sure that you understand each component of your case and answering your questions whenever they arise. An attorney will also help you gather the documents, reports and photographs to be used as evidence to prove that the nursing home failed to meet their duty of care as it relates to your loved one.
