NURSING HOME NEGLECT LAWSUITS
The strength of our society should be judged by the quality of care rendered to our youngest, sickest and oldest citizens, since they are unable to care for themselves.
Unfortunately, the quality of care rendered in nursing homes across the country is considered a national disgrace by many. Nursing home neglect injuries are suffered with surprising frequency, resulting in a loss of dignity, self-respect and quality of life for our loved ones.
Dignity is one of the most protected and preserved elements in our society. Prior to entering a nursing home, loved ones were proud individuals who worked hard throughout their lives and deserve respect and proper care when they are unable to care for themselves.
If an injury could have been prevented by following the appropriate standards of care, compensation may be available through a nursing home neglect lawsuit.
