Pursuing a Nursing Home Abuse Claim

Nursing home facilities are expected to provide their residents with a safe, well-equipped environment that is managed by a trained and capable staff. Sadly, however, incidents of abuse are not entirely uncommon in nursing home facilities around Louisville. Now that you and your family are struggling to deal with the immediate effects of nursing home abuse, you should consider working with an attorney to develop a comprehensive personal injury claim against every culpable party.

Claiming Nursing Home Abuse

While it is possible that a claim may only be filed against the few individuals who were directly involved in the abuse, it is often the case that the nursing home facility’s management and policies share responsibility for these incidents. Bearing that in mind, our legal team is prepared to help you and your family file any claim of nursing home abuse, including those involving the following:

  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional/psychological abuse
  • Sexual abuse

There is no reason that an unsafe environment in which your loved one suffered abuse should have ever been allowed to exist to begin with, and our legal team may be able to help you recover compensation for the pain and suffering your loved one has endured.
