Wrongful Death in Nursing Homes

No legal action can make up for the loss of a loved one, but pursuing a wrongful death claim can help in a number of ways. It can compensate family members for medical expenses, funeral costs and other monetary losses, as well as for emotional pain and suffering.

A wrongful death claim also holds the responsible party accountable and makes that person pay for his or her negligence. This deters others from making the same harmful mistakes in the future and protects other nursing home residents from enduring the same abuse and neglect.

Common causes of wrongful death in nursing homes include:

Nursing homes aggressively defend against accusations of wrongful death. They may claim the resident was old and in poor health and that negligence did not play a part in the death. They may, for instance, report heart failure on the death certificate to cover up a medication error or other form of negligence.

Our attorneys are experienced advocates for nursing home residents who know how to find the facts in these cases. We will conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of your loved one's death to determine if negligence played a role.
