Nursing home neglect and injuries are horrible things for any resident to experience. To get justice for your loved one, work with a Milwaukee nursing home abuse lawyer.
Giving over the safety and care of a parent or grandparent to a nursing facility is a difficult choice to make. Once you find one that you think you can trust, you’re counting on them to make your loved one’s wellbeing a top priority at all times. Sadly, this is often not the case at many nursing homes.
If your loved one has suffered in an elderly living facility, you need a Milwaukee nursing home abuse lawyer from the Law Offices of Gary Greenberg to represent your family’s interests when seeking compensation.
Insurance Companies and Nursing Home Injuries
The most difficult part of any personal injury lawsuit is getting the insurance company and their representatives to treat with you fairly. They care nothing for the health and welfare of the victim—only for their profit margins that quarter.
The truth is that an insurance company will sacrifice your loved one’s need for recompense for their bottom line every time. Your Milwaukee nursing home abuse lawyer will take the fight to them and get your loved one the settlement he or she deserves.
Types of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
There are many different forms of abuse that a nursing home resident may experience, and they are all unacceptable. If your relative has experienced any of the situations described below, you might have grounds for a lawsuit:
Physical abuse is the infliction of bodily harm, such as a slap or a shove.
Emotional abuse is language or behavior that is intended to be intimidating, humiliating, threatening, frightening, or otherwise harassing in nature.
Sexual abuse can involve molestation, rape, and inappropriate touching.
Unreasonable confinement or restraint is extremely frightening for the victim. This involves locking your loved one in a room or restraining him or her in some other way without reason.
Neglect is the failure of a caregiver to maintain adequate care, services, or supervision for your loved one.
Who Is Liable for Nursing Home Abuse?
If your loved one was abused or neglected in a nursing home, not only is the nursing home facility liable, but a third-party contractor may be, as well. Any one of these entities may have had an impact on your elderly family member’s terrible experience.
The nursing home could be liable for negligent hiring, understaffing, and inadequate training, but so could a third-party contractor. The contractors could also be liable for failing to provide security or for causing physical or sexual abuse. Identifying all of the liable parties and proving their involvement is made much easier with help from a Milwaukee nursing home abuse lawyer from our firm.
Compensation for Nursing Home Neglect and Injuries
