Nursing home abuse or negligence is an especially vulnerable situation as a person’s life and welfare is dependent on daily, quality care. Negligence may come in various forms – forgetting to provide medications at the proper time, failure to provide basic needs such as food and water, lack of supervision, even physical abuse at the hands of nursing staff. Such negligence can lead to serious injuries or death. A lawsuit may be the only way to seek justice and compensation for one’s loss, and lawsuit funding may be the only way to withstand a lengthy legal process.
Four lawsuits have been filed alleging that loved ones were neglected and mistreated by the staff of Laurel Gardens Senior Living Community. One plaintiff claims her mother did not receive appropriate medication as ordered and suffered numerous falls and injuries due to staff negligence, while another alleges that staff members refused to assist her mother in the bathroom as needed, resulting in her mother falling and suffering injuries. A third plaintiff said her father was diagnosed with a case of scabies so severe he said “he felt as though his skin was on fire,” yet the staff failed to investigate the matter, put precautions in place to prevent the spread of the disease, or report it as required by state law. Another said a family member suffered head injuries so severe it required staples, and that there was no investigation from the nursing home related to the injury. Also named in the suits are Emeritus Corporation, owner of Laurel Gardens, HCP Senior Housing Properties Trust and the Laurel Gardens executive director.
Negligence lawsuits against nursing homes often take years for the case to wind its way through the courts. Many plaintiffs simply cannot wait this long for their settlement without the help of lawsuit funding. Lawsuit Financial is a legal finance company that provides cash advances to plaintiffs for living expenses and other bills while they wait for their case to settle. With a lawsuit cash advance, victims can take on deep pocketed defendants and avoid being forced to settle for less.
Lawsuit funding is not a “lawsuit loan.” There are no up-front fees, no credit checks, no monthly payments, and you don’t need to be employed to be eligible for a cash advance. At Lawsuit Financial, we are paid only when your lawsuit settles or is resolved by a favorable cash judgment. If you lose your case, you owe absolutely NOTHING!
