The loss of a loved one, in any circumstance, can be one of the most emotionally charged and difficult times for a family. When this passing comes as the result of negligence, then dealing with the loss can be all the more complicated. Elderly people, when admitted into a nursing home facility are left there with the intention by their family to receive the best possible care. Arguably the last thing anyone expects after entrusting their loved one to a nursing home is to hear that they died as a result of the negligent actions that the facility engaged in. If you lost a loved one and suspect neglect on part of the nursing home caring for them, don’t hesitate to contact our law firm today.
Here at the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan, our experienced wrongful death attorneys specialize in deaths caused by nursing home abuse. We make it a personal affair to get to the bottom of each of our client’s cases and will not rest until justice is served.
Wrongful Death Causation
Nursing home abuse and neglect is a primary contributor to all wrongful deaths that occur in these facilities. Although the elderly people placed in these nursing homes are put their with the best intention in mind, some cases of neglect and abuse do come to be. Sadly, if the abuse is left unnoticed and not acted upon, it can lead to a wrongful death. Common forms of nursing home abuse that can culminate in wrongful death include:
- Bedsores or Pressure Sores
- Broken Bones / Fractures
- Medication Errors
- Withholding Medication
- Physical Assaults
Our top nursing home abuse attorneys have handled wrongful death cases stemming from a number of the aforementioned causes, and more. Speak with one of our compassionate nursing home wrongful death attorneys today to discuss the rights you and your family have. Although each family member has the right to file a claim in a wrongful death action, typically the family as a whole is represented by a single attorney.
