If a loved one could be experiencing neglect, injury or emotional distress or death as a result of their nursing home treatment, you may have a right to recover.
In order to recover for negligence, the trial attorneys at Klaproth Law will establish your rights to recovery by proving: the defendant owed a duty of care to your loved one, the defendant breached or violated that duty, your loved one sustained injury, and there was a “causal connection” between the defendant’s conduct and the injury your loved one experienced.
Many times injury arises as a result of negligent personal supervision and care, negligent maintenance of premises, or negligent selection or maintenance of equipment. In a wrongful death action our DC lawyers may be able to help you recover even if the nursing home accelerated the death of your loved one by even seconds. Our DC law firm can help you recover in the following nursing home negligence cases:
- Serious bedsores (pressure ulcers)
- Falls and tripping
- Medication errors
- Severe malnutrition or dehydration
- Injuries to residents who wander off (elopement)
- Sexual or physical abuse
