NURSING HOME NEGLECT:
Deciding to entrust the care of a loved one to a nursing home often is one of the most difficult decisions an individual or family may make. Thus, when an elderly or incompetent loved one suffers neglect or abuse, patients or their families may seek to pursue litigation to recover damages sustained.
Nursing home neglect litigation involves elderly or otherwise incompetent individuals who have suffered injuries or death as a result of the neglect or abuse of nursing homes, in-home care providers, or other persons or institutions providing care to elderly or incompetent individuals. These lawsuits not only seek damages for the injuries suffered by neglected or abused patients, they also provide the valuable social service of highlighting instances where proper standards are not followed. The law places strict deadlines on filing nursing home neglect and abuse cases, depending on the location where the neglect or abuse occurred and the particular facts involved.
