Nursing Home Negligence Litigation
When you move a parent or other family member into a nursing home, you are placing your trust in that facility. You count on the professional staff to provide the same loving attention you would provide in your home if you could. While many nursing homes in Alabama do provide quality care, there are shocking exceptions.
Holding Nursing Homes Responsible
Most injuries are caused by lack of supervision and care. Nursing homes are under pressure to save money, and many do so by hiring unqualified staff or by deliberately under-staffing. By investigating nursing home records and interviewing staff members, our lawyers can find out if your loved one’s injury was caused by negligence on the part of the institution and pursue appropriate compensation.
In most cases of nursing home injury, it is the son or daughter of the resident who calls us after he or she notices signs of abuse or neglect.
These signs include:
Bedsores caused by a failure of staff members to move immobile residents
Dehydration or malnutrition
Serious injuries suffered in a fall or other accident
Signs of physical or sexual abuse
Injuries caused by a resident wandering away from the nursing home
