Loved One Abused In a Nursing Home? Let Jordan Law Center Be Your Compassionate Legal Advocate.

Nursing Home Wrongful Death Attorney

Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer in Greenville

If a negligent or abusive party caused the untimely death of your loved one, you have the right to seek justice on their behalf. Trusting the care of your loved one to a nursing home facility that does not exhibit the type of care you were led to expect is the worst type of betrayal. The negligence or outright abuse of an elderly person can be extremely harmful in an emotional, psychological, and physical way, and the abusive party should always be held responsible for their actions. When those actions lead to the death of your family member or loved one, however, the case of abuse becomes one of wrongful death.

About Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is a type of case where the actions of one party caused the death of another. In the instance of nursing home abuse cases, the person in question may have died at another facility, such as a hospital, but if the initial harm was caused at the nursing home, that facility may still be held liable. Because the person who was abused is not alive to seek legal action, those closest to the deceased may sue for wrongful death on their behalf.

Who Can File a Lawful Death Lawsuit?

In the state of Florida, immediate family members are permitted to file wrongful death claims on behalf of their loved ones. This includes the spouse of the deceased, as well as any natural or legally adopted children. In certain situations, the siblings of the deceased may also be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Proving Wrongful Death in a Nursing Home

There are certain qualifications that must be met for your situation to be considered a wrongful death case. In nursing homes, the common abusers are doctors, nurses, caregivers, other nursing home staff members, or other patients. You must be able to prove that the nursing home had a legal duty to care for your loved one, which can be established if they were officially registered as a resident. It must also be evident that the nursing home committed a wrongful act of negligence or abuse, and that the wrongful behavior caused the death of your loved one.

Possible causes of wrongful death in nursing homes include:

  • Medication errors
  • Outright physical abuse
  • Failure to provide necessary medical attention
  • Negligence leading to untreated illnesses or injuries
  • Inadequate or incorrect medical treatment from nursing home medical staff

Seeking Maximum Compensation

While taking legal action against the nursing home that caused the death of your loved one can help you seek justice and closure, it will not bring your loved one back. The loss of your loved one’s companionship can be extremely painful and traumatic. For this reason, you can seek compensation for pain and suffering, as well as repayment for any applicable medical expenses and funeral expenses.

For help during this difficult time, our firm is available. Our goal at Jordan Law Center is to take care of all of the paperwork and legal issues so that you can focus on healing from the loss of your loved one.
