Those who cause personal injuries, or make chronic illnesses worse due to nursing home neglect, need to be held accountable.   That includes directors, administrators, owners, and those charged with the day-to-day responsibilities of keeping our beloved elder parents, grandparents, friends and others both safe and well.

Personal injuries such as bedsores or ulcers, chronic diseases, and death often arise due to nursing home negligence.  These victims, and their families, are entitled to be compensated for any harm or loss suffered by this neglect or carelessness while residing in a nursing homes or rehabilitation facility.

Following Hurricane Irma six patients of a Florida nursing home died after spending days without air conditioning and failing to otherwise receive proper care.  Those responsible will not only be held accountable for money damages for these wrongful deaths, but a criminal investigation is also likely.

If you , a loved one, or someone you know has been injured as the result of nursing home negligence, you should contact an attorney skilled in holding such facilities accountable, or with personal injury trial experience, to discuss and protect your legal rights
