Nursing Home Negligence Claims
Attorney John Price has practiced law since 1985 , and his North Charleston firm offers compassionate yet vigorous representation in all types of nursing home negligence claims. If you believe a loved one’s injury or death was caused by a breach of negligent care or abuse by staff members, contact the lawyers of John Price Law Firm, LLC.
When you put your loved one into a nursing home, you expect the nursing home staff to provide care that shows respect and proper concern for your family member instead of negligence. When that trust is broken, it can be very upsetting, especially in a nursing home setting. No one wants to think that their family member is living in a place that is abusing or neglecting them. When a nursing home breaks your trust, it’s time to seek legal help for the pain and suffering your family has endured.
Pursuing Nursing Home Negligence
Why It Is Important To Pursue Legal Action Against Negligent Nursing Home Facilities:
- You hold negligent nursing facilities accountable and help to make changes.
- Pursuing legal action helps you to afford the patient’s medical care.
- You keep workers that could harm others from continuing to work in the nursing home facility.
Nursing home abuse happens when an elderly resident of a nursing home is intentionally harmed by an individual. Nursing home neglect is when harm is done that is not intentional, but is the cause of negligence on the part of the nursing home workers. Types of nursing home neglect may include:
- Failing to properly care for bedsores and other wounds
- Failure to change clothing or bedding
- Failure to comply with health and safety standards when dealing with patients
- Failing to provide assistance to residence when they request it
- Failure to provide residence adequate food or water
- Failure to provide a clean and safe environment
Who Can File A Nursing Home Negligence Lawsuit?
If a nursing home resident is able, they may file the lawsuit against the nursing home themselves. If they are not able, family members and anyone who has power of attorney is able to file the lawsuit on their behalf. Evidence will need to be collected that shows that negligence or abuse has taken place. Our attorneys will help you in gathering this information.
