Experienced Louisiana Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers Fighting for Your Rights
When you have to place your spouse or one of your parents in a nursing home facility, you likely engage in extensive research to determine which place is the best option for your loved one. You researched the facility online, visited the facility, and talked with the staff at the nursing home. When you finally chose a place, you felt assured that you made the right choice for your loved one.
Now, as you are dealing with the injury or death of a loved one, you might be concerned that the injury or death was not caused by natural occurrences. You may suspect that negligence or intentional abuse may have been a factor in the injury or death of your loved one.
The nursing home abuse lawyers at Mansfield Melancon can help you determine your legal options and work with you to ensure that your loved one receives the compensation and care that they deserve.
What is a Nursing Home Abuse or Negligence Claim?
Nursing home negligence and nursing home abuse are usually two different types of claims. Nursing home negligence occurs when the nursing home and its staff fails to do something or performs an action improperly. For example, infection and bed sores are a type of negligence, because the nursing home staff failed to properly care for the individual. Nursing home abuse occurs when an individual is directly harmed by a staff member or a third party. For example, physical and sexual assault are types of abuse. Whether your loved one has suffered from negligence or abuse, both claims are serious because they can result in severe injury or death.
