Can I file a claim if my loved one did not have a contract with the home they were staying in?

Anyone that suffers injuries due to the negligence or recklessness of nursing home staff is able to pursue damages from the home, whether or not the resident had a contract at the time of the incident or actions leading to the injury.

What rights does my loved one have?

The resident of a nursing care facility has the right to be free from any abuse, including sexual, verbal, physical, mental or financial abuse. When the nursing home staff violates these rights, your lawyer can help you hold them accountable for their actions.

What is financial exploitation?

One form of abuse in a nursing home hurts the finances of a resident. When a staff member manipulates a resident to obtain funds, assets or other valuables, they are financially exploiting them.

Who Do I Contact After Abuse Happens?

Once you suspect that your loved one has suffered from abuse in their nursing home, contact the facility’s administrator to file a complaint. Be sure to be as thorough as possible while filing the complaint. Next, take your loved one to a doctor to get a checkup and verify the severity of the injuries. Finally, contact a skilled nursing home abuse attorney for the representation you need to maximize your claim’s compensation value.
