Many elderly patients and residents with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and other cognitive impairments cannot eat safely on their own.

Despite federal requirements that nursing homes maintain adequate staff, when there is a staffing shortage many impaired residents do not get the assistance they need during meal times. Although a choking incident may appear to be accidental, if the elderly resident was not properly monitored or helped, these facilities can be held accountable for the resulting pain, suffering, or injury.

If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of choking, the nursing home or assisted living facility may be held accountable. Our attorneys have specific experience representing victims and families who have been harmed by choking incidents. If you would like to discuss your case or want more information, please contact our offices for a confidential consultation.
