A wrongful death is a situation where the person that died, did so as a result of another individual(s)’ or entity’s conduct or lack of appropriate conduct.

When a death occurs while an elderly resident is under the care of a nursing home or assisted living facility, a careful examination must be done to review the circumstances of their death. If it’s determined that the death was the result of an injury or medical condition that could have been prevented, the nursing home may be found negligent in their duties to provide a safe environment and proper care for residents. In these situations, there are laws in place to hold the place accountable and provide compensation to the family.

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