When a loved one must enter a nursing home, it is an expectation and hope that they will receive adequate care. However, cases of abuse and neglect often occur in nursing homes, leaving victims susceptible to injury and death. When this happens, a victim and their family can seek help from a nursing home abuse attorney.
A nursing home has a duty to both care for the residents within their facility and keep them safe. If this is violated, the nursing home can potentially be held responsible for any money damages caused to the resident (including pain and suffering), the costs associated with the loss of a loved one, attorney’s fees and costs and punitive damages if so awarded.
