Nursing home abuse is, unfortunately, a common claim. Often those most vulnerable are most susceptible to abuse and neglect. Nursing home patients are entitled to be treated in a certain manner and reside in a facility conforming to certain standards. In many states there are laws in place defining these standards and what actions by a facility may constitute abuse. Abuse may include intentional infliction of harm, injury caused by neglect or omissions, unreasonable confinement, or sexual abuse. Please be aware this list is not exhaustive and many acts or omissions may constitute abuse. Members of Goodnow|McKay are experienced with these claims and are here to help. We are committed to helping our clients recover fair compensation. We are often able to negotiate reasonable settlements with the responsible insurance companies, but we are willing to fight for our clients through trial if necessary.
