Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against a Jefferson County Nursing Home

A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against Jefferson County and its former nursing home claiming staff failed to provide proper treatment and care that ultimately resulted in a patient’s death from septic shock.

The victim’s daughters claim the nursing home staff failed to detect a severe abdominal infection that ruptured when their mother fell at the facility. The lawsuit contends the patient was not taken to a hospital for three days, even though signs of the infection were apparent and the woman was complaining of abdominal pain. She remained hospitalized until she died a month later.

Anytime someone loses a loved one, it is devastating both emotionally and mentally. It may be shattering financially, as well. The financial and emotional roller coaster of a lawsuit is equally as painful as the loss. If you or a loved one suffered physical or emotional injuries because a nursing home was negligent or failed to fulfill its care obligations to you and your family, you may have grounds for a nursing home negligence case.
