What Compensation Is Available for Nursing Home Abuse Victims and Their Families?

Feb 14, 2018 | Nursing Home Abuse

Share

When nursing home residents are abused or neglected by healthcare providers and staff members, it’s a serious moral, ethical, professional, and legal violation. At Stewart & Stewart, our Indiana nursing home abuse lawyers have no tolerance for nursing home employees and administrators who don’t place the safety, well-being, and health of their residents above all else.

Unfortunately, too many nursing homes in Indiana and throughout the country are more focused on their bottom lines—and that means understaffing or hiring underqualified employees to take care of residents. When staff members are overworked or inexperienced, resident care suffers, and abuse and neglect is more likely to occur.

Nursing home residents and their families often feel helpless when abuse or neglect occurs, but it’s important to remember that all residents have rights, and when those rights are violated, they’re also entitled to recourse, including filing claims for compensation.

Victims and their families can receive compensation for everything from medical bills, physical pain, emotional distress and anguish, disability, reduced quality of life, and even punitive damages. In addition, an experienced legal team can also advise you while you navigate the process of potentially moving your loved one to a new facility that’s free from abusive or neglectful staff members and healthcare professionals.

If your loved one’s rights were violated at his or her nursing home, get the help your family deserves today. Call or contact us online for a free consultation.
