When you or a loved one is a resident of a nursing home, the staff of the nursing home is expected to provide quality medical care in a safe environment, not negligence or abuse that leads to injury. Nursing home negligence can include physical abuse, emotional abuse, and neglect.
Since nursing home negligence can take so many different forms, the injuries that can be sustained from nursing home negligence can be just as wide-ranging. Here is a list of just some injuries that you or a loved one could sustain due to nursing home negligence:
- Broken Bones
- Sexual Assault
- Pressure Sores or Bed Sores
If you notice any of these injuries occurring to yourself or a loved one while a resident of a nursing home, contact an experienced nursing home negligence lawyer immediately.
A nursing home negligence lawyer will help you put an end to the nursing home negligence, and find a new residence for you or your loved one. You may be entitled to compensation for a number of economic and non-economic losses you or your loved one has suffered, including:
- Pain and Suffering
- Mental Anguish
- Medical Bills
- Future Medical Bills
- Nursing Home Costs
