Today, people are living longer. The need for medical assistance increases, as our population ages. Fortunately, state and federal governments have regulations that apply to nursing homes and other institutions. Nursing home residents have rights that must not be ignored. Across America, nursing home abuse, along with elder abuse and neglect is a widespread problem that poses a danger to our vulnerable friends or family that are patients of these facilities. Statistics show that these senior citizens usually become victims of a system that is specifically designated to care for them. Liability often occurs for:
- Failure to treat and prevent bedsores
- Failure to supervise residents, which results in a fall or other injuries
- Abuse of residents
- Injuries caused by defective equipment
As friends or family of the patient, we rely on the staff of these facilities and other caregivers to take care of our loved ones. Unfortunately, the staff at these nursing homes will often do the opposite.
The only way to combat those injustices to senior citizens is by taking legal action against the owners of the nursing homes. At Turner & Turner, we can help you take that step toward justice. Compensation may be entitled to you due to the nature of the reported abuse. Accountability will not be reached until legal and financial consequences fall on these nursing home companies. Our nursing home neglect attorneys know this, and we will help you and your family to achieve this goal.
If you or a loved one have been injured or treated unfairly by a nursing home turn to Turner & Turner to protect your rights.
