As many as 40 percent of adults in the U.S. will enter a nursing home at some point in their lives. Many of these seniors may be victims of abuse or neglect. Approximately one out of every six nursing home residents is the victim of abuse every year.
One of the most common forms of nursing home abuse is neglect. Nursing home neglect occurs when a resident does not receive the level of care he or she needs, which can lead to a decline in health and eventually death of the person entrusted to the facility’s care.
If your loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, you may be entitled to compensation. An experienced personal injury attorney can help build the strongest case and protect the rights of your family.
Dustin took a real interest in my case. He advocated zealously on my behalf. With him on my side I have no doubt I received the best settlement possible.
