Baltimore Nursing Home Lawyer & Wrongful Death Attorney
Serving the Baltimore Area
Your loved one could face many challenges in a poorly run nursing home, abuse should never be one of them. Abuse goes further than physical and can be damaging in ways that are very hard to comprehend without the experience and knowledge that a nursing home lawyer brings to the table.
Assisted living facilities are meant to fill the gap between an independent living community and a nursing home. These residents take care of their own needs to some extent, but still rely heavily on staff members to assist them in being successful at their day to day activities and well-being. When those needs are not met, it can often be called neglect.
Most states allow for an action for the wrongful death of a loved one and a loss such as this has a tremendous effect emotionally and economically on the immediate family. A wrongful death action may be based on either an intentional act or one that occurred because of the negligence of the defendants involved.
Placement into a group home can be a trying situation for those placed and for their families. Severe injury and death may occur due to neglect and/or abuse if caregivers are not properly vetted for their positions, not properly trained or they are not giving their full attention to the needs of the disabled.
