Do you have a loved one that was injured or killed in a Virginia nursing home accident?
More and more people across the country and in Virginia are answering yes to this question every day. Incidents of abuse and other forms of injury are going from rare to commonplace.
It is, unfortunately, becoming typical for residents to suffer battery, bed sores, and even falls. Now, not every instance of harm immediately translates into a lawsuit. That would require a certain kind of intentional action or negligence.
However, that threshold is satisfied in more ways than you might think. To show you under what scenarios you could potentially bring a Virginia nursing home lawsuit, we summarized some cases for you to read. They revolve around common accident schemes but don’t let that stop you if you are injured in a totally different manner.
We are proud to be one of the country’s foremost advocates of nursing home residents’ rights. We stand up for them even when it is not easy or convenient. We don’t represent nursing homes, hospitals, or doctors because that contradict our core mission of serving victims.
WHY DO SOME VIRGINIA NURSING HOME CASES RECOVER MORE THAN OTHERS?
The better you understand these Virginia nursing home lawsuits, the more likely you will be to figure out how and when you can recover. Plus, the faster you understand your rights have been violated the easier it will be to obtain recovery for their violation.
You will see that we have organized the case summaries by accident type. Don’t fear for your own sake though if you were involved in a totally foreign incident. These are just the most frequent forms of nursing home lawsuits and not the only ones!
However, in trying to determine if your injury can be effectively turned into a lawsuit, try and address some of these concerns:
- The total extent and form of your injury.
- The total cost that the injury caused you.
- The time that the injury will affect you tangible or intangibly.
- The amount that your prior conditions contributed to the injury.
- The laws or regulations that the nursing home violated.
The similar lawsuits that the nursing home has been involved with before.
If these Virginia nursing home lawsuit summaries show you anything, then it should be that residents are able to sue and recover for a wide range of misconduct. Yet, that recovery takes urgency, skill, and resources.
