Understanding the Nursing Home Negligence Claim Process
Nursing home negligence occurs when an elderly person or group of people are emotionally or socially neglected, mistreated and abused. If there is a failure to provide medical treatments and basic needs like food, medicine and personal hygiene, you may be entitled to receive full reparations for you the suffering you and family members have endured.
Often times there are visible signs associated with neglect occurring within the nursing home environment which can be documented to support your claim. These include:
- Soiled bed sheets, linens or bathroom towels
- Unexplained or preventable injuries
- Prescription discrepancies
- Malnutrition, sudden loss of weight and signs of dehydration
- Unusual or withdrawn behavior changes
- Unwashed clothes and poor personal hygiene
- Hazards occurring within the residence environment
Protecting you, and the ones you care about most is our mandate. We’ll hold the business groups in charge of your elder care facility responsible for their actions, preventing them from further abusing clients and making them accountable for the damages you’ve incurred.
