When our loved ones reach the age where they require more care than we are able to provide, we want to know that they are in good hands. Nursing homes provide necessary services for some of the most vulnerable members of our society. This makes it all the more devastating when things go wrong.
It is the responsibility of a nursing home to protect and care for their residents. This means ensuring the residents are receiving proper sustenance and are getting the treatment they require, whether pharmaceutical or physical. By failing to provide a safe and healthy place for their residents, or failing to protect them from ill-wishing employees or peers, nursing homes risk injuring or killing those under their care.
Any of these injuries can be traumatizing on both the resident and their loved ones, and are the result of a failure on the behalf of the nursing home. By holding the institution accountable, improvements can be made for future residents.

Wrongful death actions result when one person’s actions lead to the death of another person. These cases are often time-consuming and expensive.
Personal injury cases are filed when a person has seen their life negatively impacted by preventable actions taken by another party. In car accident cases, this means that the at-fault driver has to provide compensation to the impacted party. In cases of nursing home injuries, the nursing home is the at-fault party when a resident is injured in an avoidable situation.
Some situations that can led to a personal injury case include:
Nursing homes must be held responsible for the care of their residents, and must be held accountable when their residents get hurt. When a nursing home agrees to take care of a resident they sign a contract. By failing to to fulfill their end of the deal they can be found liable in a court of law. Their negligence can cost them in compensation and damages.
