Nursing home residents are typically older and in poorer health than seniors citizens who live on their own or with loved ones. They are also typically more prone to falling. However, a well-run and fully staffed and trained nursing home should be able to prevent the majority of these incidents. Unfortunately, nursing home neglect is still an all too common problem. When issues of neglect such as falls occur, residents can suffer physically and mentally as a result. If a loved one has been injured because of nursing home negligence and/or abuse, victims and their families need an experienced nursing home abuse attorney by their side.
A family member is suing a nursing facility, citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries and negligence to his relative.
The complaint, filed on November 16, alleges that the nursing home failed to implement a care plan to properly address the resident’s fall risk. Improper care led to the patient’s fall, resulting in a right hip fracture and ultimately deterioration of his health.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000.
There is no excuse for facilities to cut corners when it comes to preventing nursing home falls. A lawsuit may be the only way to seek justice and compensation for one’s loss. It may also be a means to improve safety and quality of care.
Nursing home lawsuits usually take years before a settlement is reached. With bills continuously adding up, the ability to wait for a fair settlement may not be an option without the help of pre-settlement lawsuit funding. With a lawsuit cash advance, plaintiffs can pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, cover daily household expenses, or any purchase needed; there are no restrictions on how the money is spent.
Lawsuit funding is not like a traditional bank loan; factors such as employment history and financial standing are not required. The only concern is the validity of the lawsuit and the likelihood of its success. There are no monthly payments; repayment is made once the case settles and comes from the proceeds of the settlement; there are no out—of-pocket expenses. In the event of a lost case, the repayment is completely waived. At Lawsuit Financial, we can typically provide a funding decision within 24 – 48 hours of receiving case documentation. Then, we will wire the funds directly into the client’s bank account for immediate use.
If you or a loved one suffered physical or emotional injuries because an assisted living facility or nursing home was negligent or failed to fulfill its care obligations to you and your family, you may have grounds for a nursing home/assisted living negligence case. If you are struggling financially during a pending claim, lawsuit funding can be the monetary flexibility needed to hold out for a greater settlement.
