Nursing Home Litigation
The incidence of elder abuse and nursing home abuse in California is growing rapidly. Each day, hundreds of members of our elder population in California are victimized and as a result an increase in nursing home litigation.
If your loved one is a victim of neglect or abuse in a nursing home or residential facility, there are likely other residents at the nursing home who are also being neglected or abused; in fact, there is probably a continuing pattern of neglect at the facility. In every nursing home negligence case, the Firm carefully studies the nursing home’s history of violations of both federal and state law to determine if there is pattern of neglect. We also focus on staffing and training deficiencies, which are often the root cause of nursing home injuries.
The signs of elder abuse and nursing home abuse are often subtle and a senior who is being abused in a nursing home frequently fails to report the abuse. If your friend or relative has had unexplained injuries, bed sores, a broken hip or frequent falls, and you are suspicious of elder abuse or nursing home negligence, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit including a wrongful death suit if the nursing home abuse or elder abuse has led to death. Elder abuse and nursing home abuse law in California is complex and changes frequently.
