Nursing home injury or negligence is a specialized area of medical malpractice law that requires knowledgeable and experienced legal representation by a nursing home injury attorney.
Nursing home injury or negligence occurs when a nursing home resident is physically or emotionally abused and/or neglected in a nursing home by the home's physicians, nurses, nursing assistants, therapists and administrators.
Nursing home negligence can result in death, falls causing broken bones (including broken hips), spinal injuries, malnutrition, dehydration, bed sores (decubitis ulcers), as well as nursing home residents wandering off the nursing home premises and injuring themselves based on negligent supervision.
You or your loved one may be entitled to significant economic compensation if a nursing home physician or staff member has failed to provide care in a reasonably professional and compassionate manner, which results in a nursing home injury to a loved one.
