NURSING HOME NEGLIGENCE
When a loved one can no longer manage daily living, relatives often realize that they are also unqualified to provide their loved one with adequate in-home care. For most families, deciding to place an elderly relative in a nursing home or assisted living residence is difficult. But, when they do, they trust the chosen facility and believe they are doing the right thing. While no one ever plans on nursing home negligence or abuse, it is all too common today.
When residences are understaffed or personnel are untrained or unqualified, residents frequently do not get the care they need. Abuse or neglect can result in malnutrition, disease, preventable falls, and even death. At Shane Hall Attorney at Law, PLLC, our staff helps families pursue negligence claims to better conditions, hold responsible parties accountable, and obtain compensation to cover high medical costs and other damages.
