How Can an Attorney Help with Your Nursing Home Abuse Claim?

Sep 20, 2017 | Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse is tragic and heartbreaking, and it happens more often than we realize. Whether it’s caused by understaffed facilities or negligent care providers, residents who are neglected or abused often suffer serious health effects that can put their lives at risk.

Finding out that your loved one received subpar care or was neglected by their healthcare providers is devastating, and you want answers. At Stewart & Stewart, we fight for the rights of both abused and neglected residents and their loved ones, and it’s our goal to help them get both closure and compensation for violations of their health and trust.

Our Indiana nursing home abuse lawyers know what it takes to build a strong case, and we know how to:

  • Prove your loved one’s rights were violated. All Indiana nursing home residents are protected by the state’s Nursing Home Resident’s Bill of Rights. It includes things like the right to be informed, the rights to privacy, dignity, and respect, and the right to voice grievances. If any of those rights were violated, the nursing home can be held liable for injuries or illnesses that occur.
  • Stand up to the nursing home and the insurance company. Many nursing homes are owned by large corporations that oversee dozens, if not hundreds of similar facilities throughout the country. They’re well-protected from abuse claims, and that can leave many families feeling like they have no recourse. But our legal team knows how the corporations work, and we know how to collect evidence that proves your loved one was abused or neglected.
