Nursing Home Injury & Elder Abuse Law
There are many ways the elderly can be put in harm's way in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Here's how civil injury claims may arise.
Elderly residents in nursing homes and assisted living facilities are far more susceptible to injury than most. For this reason, the professionals working in these facilities – and the facilities themselves – are held to a high standard of care. When they fail to meet this standard, and a resident is injured or harmed, the facility may be liable in a personal injury lawsuit.
