Minnesota & Nebraska Nursing Home Injury Lawyers

333333Families that have to place loved ones into nursing homes trust the nursing homes to take care of their parents or grandparents. They expect that their loved one is going to be treated with the compassion, dignity, and respect that they deserve.

Unfortunately, there are times when money is put before the people in nursing homes, which puts their safety at risk. Due to understaffing and cost-cutting, many nursing homes do not properly protect the patients from neglect, abuse, and other matters that cause them great harm.

If your loved one has been injured or made ill due to neglect within a nursing home, it is very important to consult with a nursing home injury attorney who specializes in nursing home injuries and neglect matters. Located in Wayzata, Minnesota, and Omaha, Nebraska we have served clients whose loved ones have been injured in nursing homes when all they have done is simply entrust their loved one to the nursing home’s care.

Experienced Personal Injury Representation

The doctors and nurses that are on the nursing home staff will not typically admit that they have done something to cause the injury or death of a nursing home patient because they omitted something or made a mistake. If your loved one has sustained an injury or illness in a nursing home, it is fair to say that the staff involved has been instructed on what they should and should not say in the matter.

Common injuries that occur in nursing homes due to neglect include:

  • Bedsores
  • Fall injuries
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Medication errors
  • Elder abuse

If your loved one has suffered any of the above injuries or scenarios, you may have an injury claim against the nursing home. If negligent actions or abuse led to death, then you could file a wrongful death lawsuit.
