Los Angeles Wrongful Death Lawyer
Nursing Home Abuse & Negligence
At times, nursing home abuse or negligence may be so severe that it will lead to the wrongful death of an elderly patient or resident. If you have lost a loved one due to elder abuse or neglect in a Los Angeles nursing home or assisted living facility, an attorney at our law firm may be able to help you take legal action against the facility for their actions. Although we cannot do anything to reverse the loss you have experienced, we may be able to bring you peace of mind in knowing that justice has been served. We can also assist you in seeking financial compensation that may help with funeral costs and medical bills and enable your family to have a more secure financial future.
A wrongful death may be caused as a result of elder neglect, due to malnutrition, an untreated infection or dehydration, as well as from physical elder abuse. Medical malpractice in a nursing home may also cause the death of an elderly patient due to a medication error or any act of negligence on the part of medical staff. In any of these situations, the family of the person who lost his or her life may be able to file a civil lawsuit against the negligent facility for their conduct. This may not only offer you the opportunity at holding the nursing home accountable but will also allow you the chance to recover monetary damages for medical costs, funeral expenses, and possibly much more.
