When a Resident is Injured

Many nursing home abuse cases reveal that residents suffer severe injury or death due to a lack of assistance or improper care. In many situations, the resident becomes dehydrated or malnourished because they do not receive assistive support when they no longer having the capacity to feed themselves. Other times, the injury is the result of medical staff administering the wrong drug or failing to provide the resident with much-needed medical attention.

Residents who use wheelchairs or are bed-ridden can quickly develop life-threatening and painful bedsores. A failure of the nursing staff to reposition a mobility-challenged resident or bathing them routinely can cause a decline in their health due to open wounds that appear on the resident's skin.

Family members are often horrified when they learn that the decline of their loved one's health could have been prevented had appropriate care been given. Often, severe medical conditions go undiagnosed because the staff is not adequately trained, or the facility is understaffed and not able to accommodate the health and hygiene needs of its residents. Because of that, families will hire skilled personal injury attorneys who specialize in nursing home abuse cases to stop the harm immediately.

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
