Filing a Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuit
Here are the next steps for protecting your loved one from nursing home neglect or abuse:
- Report the abuse. You do not need definitive proof that abuse is happening to report it. But reporting suspected abuse may have a positive effect by removing the abuser and preventing them from hurting others.
- Get a free case evaluation with a nursing home abuse law firm to see if you can take legal action. A medical malpractice or negligence claim can help hold medical professionals and nursing home staff members accountable for their medical mistakes and wrongdoings.
- Discuss other care options with your family. Sometimes a nursing home facility is the best care option for your loved one, but you do have other choices.
- Become empowered by learning what to look for when choosing the next nursing home or assisted living facility.
