Visitors to a nursing home may pursue a ‘premises liability’ claim against the nursing home for injuries sustained due to improperly or negligently maintained premises. Claim for negligence may be pursued against the nursing home and other parties who maintain or control the area where the injury occurred. In Marie’s case she may pursue a claim directly against the nursing home for damages relating to her: medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and disability.
