If your loved one has suffered from nursing home injuries of any kind, it is important to seek help promptly. When a West Virginia family places a loved one in a long-term care facility, it is with the expectation that he or she will be appropriately cared for and carefully monitored.If your family member has suffered from nursing home injuries or you suspect that he or she has suffered from a low standard of care, our team is ready to assist you.
Nursing home injuries are not always a result of blatant physical abuse. Instead, these injuries can derive from negligence, poor medical care, lack of supervision or malnutrition. Victims cannot always speak for themselves, and these issues may continue for an extended amount of time before they are noticed. If you suspect that your care facility is responsible for wounds, infections, bed sores or a behavior of fearfulness, you may have a legal case.
Some senior adults are prone to wander off, require constant supervision and need assistance with some of the most basic tasks. West Virginia families may not be able to manage these burdens alone and, therefore, rely on the services of a third party. When the measure of trust that you have placed with a nursing home is broken, a legal claim may be a manner by which you and your family can obtain recompense for any physical injuries suffered.
If your family has been impacted by nursing home injuries, you will want to work with a team that is experienced representing senior adults and families. Allow us to help you hold the parties believed responsible accountable and seek a positive resolution to your legal claim. A case evaluation is an appropriate option to determine your legal rights and what steps may be necessary to enforce them.
