Northeast Jefferson County Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Attorneys - Part 1

Northeast Jefferson County Colorado Nursing Home Abuse LawyersOur Northeast Jefferson County senior home abuse lawyers have witnessed a substantial rise in the number of criminal and civil cases that involve mistreatment, abuse, and neglect happening in nursing facilities throughout central Colorado. Sadly, many more cases of abuse and neglect go unreported every year because some victims of abuse cannot describe what is happening or live in fear of retaliation if they tell anyone.

Medicare regularly collects information on every nursing facility in Jefferson County based on data gathered through inspections, surveys, and investigations. The federal database reveals that forty-eight (29%) of the 164 Jefferson County area senior homes are deemed to be significantly lower than the national averages after investigators identified serious deficiencies and violations at some facilities.

The Devastating COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the nursing facility industry profoundly, where some of the most vulnerable members of society are fighting hard to win the battle against the viral disease. Many nursing center residents are already struggling with advanced comorbidities, weakened immune systems, or other serious complications that can lead to their death. Some severe injuries and preventable deaths result in a medical malpractice case and wrongful death lawsuit.

Many assisted-living facilities in Colorado are dealing with COVID-19 outbreaks because the virus is extremely contagious. For weeks or months, many of these centers lacked efficient screening of employees, nurses, family members, and visitors, who might have unknowingly brought the viral disease into the home.

The home’s lack of protective protocols and their workers’ failure to follow effective United States sanitation procedures have made elder home residents sick with the COVID-19 virus. If your loved one contracted the coronavirus or was exposed to COVID-19, negligence might have played a role in their crippling illness. If your family member developed a life-threatening injury or died as a result of coronavirus, your family deserves justice and repayment for medical bills. Let us file a physical injury suit or wrongful death claim.

Northeast Jefferson County Senior Demographics

Of the more than 450,000 residents living in Northeast Jefferson County, approximately 52,000 are retirees. Many of these elderly individuals moved here decades ago to enjoy the beautiful climate and phenomenal amenities these communities provide, including those in Arvada, Lakewood, West Pleasant View, Leyden, and Columbine.

Unfortunately, the increasing number of retirees in the community has placed a substantial demand for the number of beds required in nursing facilities that are already overcrowded. Additionally, the number of available registered nurses, certified nurses’ assistants, and licensed practical nurses is significantly limited.

The understaffing means that many nursing home administrators expect the already fatigued and stressed nursing staff to work overtime. As a result, the incident rates involving home abuse and neglect have risen sharply in recent years.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
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
