Hold Nursing Homes Accountable For Injuries And Deaths
The growing numbers of older Americans mean an increasing population in nursing homes and other assisted living facilities. We rely on these facilities and their employees to care for vulnerable members of our family. When those family members are injured due to abuse or neglect, it can be difficult to determine who is responsible and to what degree. If you or a loved one is in this type of situation, it is in your best interest to seek help from a skilled lawyer.

Pursuing Compensation for Nursing Home Neglect and Other Types of Negligence
Nursing homes and other care facilities have a duty to provide a certain standard of care to their residents. This includes providing the proper practice, treatment or procedure in a given situation. A nursing home can be held liable for negligence if:
- The owner or employees breach this duty of care to the injured person
- The person’s injury was caused by this breach
- The owner’s or employee’s conduct caused the injury
