Take Action When Nursing Homes Breach Our Trust
Millions of Americans trust nursing homes to take care of their loved ones. Most nursing homes seek to earn that trust, providing a valuable service and treating their patients with dignity and professionalism.
Sadly, however, many nursing homes fall short of professional standards and the consequences can be terrible.
When a nursing home patient is hurt through abuse, neglect or other forms of malpractice, the victim or the victim’s family can seek compensation for the harm done to them. This is a way of helping to cope with medical bills and other costs that come with the aftermath of an injury. It also holds nursing homes accountable for hurting the people they were meant to protect, deterring them from such behavior in the future.
It is not easy to successfully pursue a claim for nursing home abuse. Abuse can be difficult to prove and insurance companies and other opponents are skilled at talking people into settling for less than they deserve. You need help from a lawyer with the experience and knowledge to handle your case.
