Nursing homes are businesses. These entities often cut costs whenever the law allows, and in some cases, where the law does not allow. These institutions will staff as few members as possible in order to minimize their costs and maximize their profits. When too few staff members are entrusted to monitor too many residents, the common result is that avoidable injuries and illnesses occur and then are not reported and treated in a timely fashion.
Our law firm will undertake a complete investigation of how and why your loved one was injured. If the nursing home was not appropriately staffed, we will find it out. We are dedicated to helping you get full damages. Our on-staff registered nurse can help assess the severity of the injury and appropriate monetary damages for the medical treatment and reduced quality of life from a serious injury.
