Maryland Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers Serving, Baltimore, Annapolis & Washington, D.C.
Placing a loved one into a nursing home can be one of the most difficult decisions, both for the loved one and the family. Unfortunately, the love and attention given to a family member at home is not always equaled when placed into a nursing facility. And, at its worst, nursing home care (or lack of care) can rise to neglect and abuse.
What is Nursing Home Neglect?
Because a loved one placed into a skilled nursing facility or nursing home often lacks the capacity to communicate their needs effectively, they are at the will of the nursing home staff to ensure that they are treated correctly and not abused or neglected. Unfortunately, nursing homes and long-term care facilities do not always comply with the standard of care owed to their patients, such as your elderly loved ones. Nursing home negligence and abuse can take many forms ranging from bedsores to malnutrition or worse, death.
Can you sue a nursing home facility for suspected neglect?
Henderson Law’s nursing home negligence lawyers are willing to take on a negligent nursing home or long-term care facility in order to recover the compensation that you or your loved one are entitled to. If a pre-suit settlement cannot be achieved, Henderson Law is ready, willing and able to sue the negligent nursing home or long-term care facility. While a monetary recovery cannot undue the harm to your loved one, Henderson Law’s lawyers are hopeful that significant monetary recoveries send a signal to negligent nursing homes and long-term care facilities that their negligent practices will not be tolerated and need to be rectified.
