Most persons are in nursing homes because they cannot care for themselves. If you have a loved one in a nursing home, you expect the home to recognize this special situation of trust. As a result, nursing home employees must treat residents with extra care and safety to avoid injury. Common injuries include bed sores, broken bones, or even death.
Nursing home residents have special laws to protect their rights. If a nursing home violates these rights, or fails to care for a resident in a safe manner and injuries result, the nursing home may be liable for the injury as well as attorney fees.

Delay in learning your rights or investigating the claim may hinder the ability to prove this type of case.
