Most families eventually face a difficult decision regarding the placement of an elderly relative in a nursing home where trained professionals are always available to provide proper care and medical treatment. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse and neglect can occur, leaving families to deal with the consequences of the improper care and treatment rendered to a loved one.
A claim arising out of nursing home abuse or neglect is, by nature, a form of medical malpractice where the victim alleges that the nursing home and its medical staff were negligent by failing to render proper care to a nursing home resident.
It is essential to know your rights in these situations and work with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
