Common Cases of Malpractice at Nursing Homes
Unfortunately, nursing home malpractice is not altogether uncommon today. The most common cases pursued by nursing home residents and their families include:
- Malnutrition and/or dehydration
- Bedsores/pressure ulcers
- Medication errors
- Delays in administering medical treatment
- Misdiagnosed illnesses/injuries
If you have witnessed (or been the victim of) one or more of these cases of malpractice, it is important to seek legal counsel. With this kind of case, you carry the burden of proving negligence, which is most easily done with early intervention by a skilled lawyer who can begin building a case on your behalf.
Compensation for Nursing Home Malpractice
If your lawyer effectively proves nursing home malpractice, you may be entitled to certain types of compensation, depending upon the severity of the injury and/or illness.
You may pursue compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
In some cases, malpractice may occur because the nursing home is understaffed. In this case, the nursing home simply does not have enough employees on staff to take care of the needs of all the residents. While this is a sympathetic problem for the employees on staff, it is still a case of negligence, and the nursing home should be held responsible for injuries, illness, and or death occurring as a result of that negligence.
Call a Qualified Nursing Home Malpractice Attorney
Instead of attempting to deal with the nursing home’s management or filing a claim with the nursing home’s insurance company on your own, involve a legal professional. Without proper counsel, you are likely to get nowhere and receive no compensation for their negligence and your pain and/or loss.
Insurance companies have massive budgets for attorneys they always keep on retainer in case of suits and claims such as yours. Without the aid of someone who knows the laws and can prove malpractice occurred, they will fight against you and twist the words of the law to their advantage. With the help of a skilled Corpus Christi nursing home malpractice attorney, however, you will have someone on your side who is versed in medical malpractice and tort laws. They can help you prove malpractice and pursue the compensation that you deserve.
