When you learn that the nursing home or assisted living facility which you have entrusted to care for your loved one is failing to maintain a proper standard of care, you can feel both betrayed and devastated. If your loved one was neglected or suffered a serious fall / fracture, it is important to retain the services of an attorney with significant experience handling nursing home abuse / neglect cases.
We are dedicated to protecting the rights of nursing home patients and their families throughout Northeastern Ohio. Please contact us now to schedule a free consultation to discuss your loved one's fall or fracture. When there is insufficient supervision, a lack of employees and / or an improperly trained staff, unnecessary accidents can occur. For example, avoidable falls and fractures result when patients have to do things for themselves because nurses or nurse's aides are unavailable to assist them. Patients can also fall from beds, chairs and wheelchairs only to be left helpless when there is no response to the call button. In these situations, the lack of proper supervision or training coupled with the delicate condition of these elderly patients can prove to be catastrophic or even fatal.
In cases of death caused by negligence or malpractice, the Ohio wrongful death law allows for compensation for a variety of damages caused by the death of a loved one. We can help you pursue financial compensation for all elements of your loss.
If you called to speak with the nursing home doctor, did he or she take very little time to talk with you or address your concerns about your loved one's risk for a fall? Concerned family members are often forced to deal with a part-time doctor who typically is assigned to several different nursing homes and does most of his or her work via telephone. In these frustrating times, our firm can help ensure that your concerns are heard and addressed.
