When your loved one moves into a nursing home, you trust that the staff members and medical professionals will be compassionate and dedicated to providing excellent care.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. Nursing homes are often understaffed, and the staff members who are in charge of taking care of residents may be overworked and poorly trained. That combination can lead to unacceptable and even dangerous standards of care, resulting in patients being neglected or even abused by the people who are supposed to be looking after them.
At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, our Texas nursing home abuse lawyers know how devastating it can be to find out that your loved one was taken advantage of, forgotten, or even assaulted while living in a nursing home or facility. That’s why we strongly believe that victims and their families should be compensated for such negligence on the part of nursing home owners and administrators.
When you get a lawyer for a nursing home abuse claim, you may be able to recover compensation for:
- Medical bills—Abuse and neglect can lead to serious health problems, and some victims may require hospitalization or even surgeries to treat their complications.
- Pain and suffering—Residents who are mistreated by staff may experience stress, fear, and anxiety. The incidents can take a toll on them and their loved ones. We believe that victims and their families should be compensated for what they’ve gone through.
