Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Elder abuse is quickly becoming a terrible epidemic in this country. Loved ones are moved into nursing homes or hospices where the clear expectation is that they will be well cared for. Unfortunately, there are times when this completely fails to happen, and they suffer abuse in the very facility that was supposed to provide care.
Elder abuse includes the following:
- Emotional abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Mental abuse
- Physical abuse
Unfortunately, this horrible cruelty is often inflicted by people who are entrusted with the care of elderly patients or residents, such as nurses, doctors, other caregivers, and even family members.
Elder abuse claims seek to compensate, support and, most importantly, protect the elderly who often times cannot defend or take full care of themselves.
Wrongful Death Claims
Claims against wrongful deaths are filed when a person dies due to the legal fault or negligence of another person or entity such as a hospital, nursing home, rehab center, etc.
Wrongful death lawsuits provide financial compensation for the survivors’ loss for costs such as funeral expenses, lost wages from the deceased, and lost companionship.
