Nursing homes are places where we send our elderly loved ones to receive top-quality, professional care as they might need attention 24/7 that we simply cannot provide ourselves due to so many different reasons. We send our elders to nursing homes because we love them and know that they deserve proper attention and care at all times of day, and we hope that these nursing home facilities would do that. However, unfortunately there have been many cases of elder abuse and wrongful death at the hands of nursing home staff and facilitators via negligence and malice.
If you lost a loved one due to wrongful death in a nursing home, you have the right to file a complaint to receive compensation for your losses. Below, our kind and compassionate team of expert wrongful death attorneys from West Coast Trial Lawyers break down the causes of nursing home wrongful deaths and the legal implications of such a case.
